    Default Bonds 755 YESSSSSSSSSS

    Couldn't care less about him tying the record, but.........

    The fan that caught the ball threw it back on the field. If I catch his name and find the way I think I'll mail him 10 bucks for that one. Yea it's worth it, maybe I'll send $20.

    Bud Selig rose to his feet..........and stood there with his hands in his pockets. Mr. Selig, I have the utmost respect for you.

    No one threw the ball back. The guy kept it.

    Brother RYou,
    I have very different feelings about Selig after his sour display yesterday. While he may have been trying to make some sort of personal statement by standing and half yawning with his hands in his pockets (a statement which contrasts greatly with his official verbalized message released prior to the end of the game, btw), IMO he displayed a great deal of dishonor and shame on the office of the commissioner. If he wanted to express his negative feelings toward Bonds, he should have had the brass to say so verbally, not act one way and make a transparent and dishonest "politically correct" statement that contradicts his behavior. He reminded me of a disgruntled wedding guest, who disapproves of the union, but comes anyway, looking dour, stonefaced and refusing to clap when the couple are announced as husband and wife. Instead of trying to infect the entire proceedings with your bad mood and spirit, the more honest and honorable thing to do would be to stay home, and leave the day for those who support the proceedings. Selig was too cowardly to truely and officially express his feelings via the statement, yet passive-agressively attempted to express them via his actions during Bonds moment of greatness. I have lost the small amount of respect that I had for Bud Selig based on his performance last night and see him as a disgrace to his office.

    Lets face facts, Selig has all of the inside poop on Mr. Bonds. With the MLB security team, he may know more than the SF prosecutors. Clearly he is making a statement. By being there and not being enthusiastic is louder statement than not being there.

    You can bet on it that when the prosecutors finally take action on something about BB, and if he is found guilty, that big asterisk will be in placed in front of the note in the record book, not behind it.

    Maybe I'm being puritanical about it, but I look at Hank Aaron and his career in comparison. Hammerin' Hank does not deserve to be dishonored in this way. He knows, you know it and I know it.

    No, Bonds is not deserving of the honor nor any title, but he will have the title; if only for a while. This may well turn 90% of the fans of the sport into ARod fans. He's 250+ off the total and it will take 7-8 years, but he does have the best shot removing Bonds.

    I look forward to that day.

    As for Selig, he knows the real deal, more than anyone. He has an obligation to protect the integrity of the sport. I have no qualms with his actions. He had no option, any form of postive support on his part connotes support of Bonds actions.

    I am by no means a Bonds fan, but Selig was a piece of crap yesterday. Obviously there is controversy (you can't even watch a game without it being mentioned at least once an inning) but whose fault is it? Is Selig absolutely blameless in this? And in every statement he makes about Bonds he always takes cheap shots at him by bringing up the "innocent until proven guilty" thing.

    Seriously, it's obvious Selig does not care for Bonds whatsoever but he needs to man up and either call him out in public or stop acting like his ex-girlfriend is going to marry Bonds so he writes that he's happy for him but looks like he wants to punch him in the face.

    Didn't see it, but agree Selig's hands in the pocket sounds pretty weasally.

    I'm sick to death of hearing about these records, and watching Bonds, it looks like he's wrapped up in this. But I'm feeling more like he doesn't deserve all this dishonor and shame everyone want to lay on him. He hasn't been convicted much less charged with anything. But even if one is convinced he used steroids, how do you separate his use from that of his contemporaries (e.g., McGwire)? I think a baseball player's greatness should be measured against those he played against, not so much by a number. On that basis (7 MVPs) he clearly stands as one of the best. Babe Ruth though was probably the best of all.

    I don't like Bonds, but Selig as usual acted like an idiot. That dude has the worst body language I've ever seen for a major sports Commissioner.

    If Selig didn't want to be there, then he shouldn't have been there. He looked like most of us would look if our wife/girlfriend made us go to an opera.

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.
