    I thought it was funny when a few years ago he was playing left field and there was a long fly his way. He didnt even move thinking that It was a homer.You could tell that he was trying to be cool by not wasting his time running to make a play, but then it hit the warning track and he looked like a jackass.:haha:

    Its a tie , no big deal . And Barry Bonds does suck , and not for the alleged steroid use .

    I haven't seen the evidence , and I am not on the jury , so I can't comment on steroids ........ although they DO NOT MAKE YOU SEE THE BALL OR HIT THE BALL .

    I think Barry Bonds sucks because he is a bad person . He isn't very approachable by fans . He is discourteous . And he is just a douche .

    I like guys like the Craig Counsells of the world . They don't make a bunch of headlines , yet they help you win . And any little kid who asks , can get his autograph .

    I guess Barry is an asset to my team, but I have no respect for him, not 'cause of steroids, but beacuse he has no "hustle". Like was mentioned before, he has stood and watched balls thinking they were going foul or over the fence, and they did not, I've seen it on many occasions. What really used to piss me off was when he ropes one real hard, and assumes it's a homer, and just kind of trots to first base, then when it hits the ground in th eoutfield, then he starts running. That kind of crap has cost numerous bases for the Giants.

    I had read earlier that much of Baseball wasn't even going to recognise his home run accomplishment because of his drug use. I hope they stick to their guns. I think he should have been banned from baseball entirely. He certainly is a blackeye for that sport.
    It's the unknowns like Craig Counsell and Clint Barmes for the Rockies that play their hearts out for the game and never recieve the much deserved attention.

    i dont really care about baseball... but I hear lots of former players talk about bonds on espn radio and almost all of them agree that he deserved to be a HOF'er for his pre-98 play alone...

    I kinda like Maris myself... mainly because he never got the love her deserved. He had the greatest single HR-hitting season of all time. No roids required, just mad skillz.
