Bonds and Baseball
What I wish most for Spring Training is for Barry Bonds to just go away. As long as he continues his quest to break Hank Aarons home run record there can be no peace in Baseball. The game is at a crossroads, haunted by the past few seasons of Steroids stories. With Bonds in the limelight there is little hope to heal the wounds that steroids have inflicted on Americas pastime.
Of course, Bonds won't leave and so we a forced to endure his selfish pursuit of a record he has no right to own given the doubt and accusations and investigations that follows him. It is baseball's stickiest subject and one that makes good cartoon fodder.
