    I don't even see the debate.

    Bud Selig is a moron, but even though he's the commish, there still isn't any reason why he actually needs to be there for this *Record Breaking.

    Who cares about this? It's pretty damn apparent that Bonds got this far because he juiced. Yeah, yeah....there's no "physical evidence"....blah, blah, blah.....
    Bonds, along with plenty of MLB players cheated the game.
    I'll say this....as much as it irks me that he's going to *Break The Record that Henry Aaron set legally, I'll be happier with the fact that Barry Bonds will never, ever win a World Series title.
    He'll never win a "team" award. All of his *Accomplishments will be self-important. And everyone til the end of time will know it.

    I never thought I'd say this...but I have to agree with Tom.

    Barry Bonds is not a legitimate athlete and I don't consider his achievements noteworthy. It is very apparent that he has taken steroids and gained an unfair advantage over the competition.

    That goes against everything competitive sports stands for.

    Thanks Brian. I'm not such a bad guy. I'm just pretty opinionated.

    Barry bonds is a particular sore point, simply because he is the central figure in the steriod issue at hand. He is the most visable person where steriods are concerned, and he is also the most arrogant. That is not a good combination.

    What I'd love to see is this...

    Every pitcher that faces Barry from here out just walks him, regardless of the situation or score, or anything. Just keep walking him until he either is too old to play the game or gets bored enough that he walks away. Don't even toss the ball within eight feet of the plate. Let him break his all-time walks record. Fine and dandy.
    Let Hank keep his legal record intact.
