Does this really surprise you? I mean what’s next, coaches and managers are gonna test positive? I think if anything, this exonerates Bonds as being the face of the steroid era.
The question is, how many people did MLB and the media turn against Barry and is the affect irreparable? It’s ironic how most fans turned a blind eye to ARod’s performance as Bonds approval rating fell off the likes of Bush’s.
If you recall, pundits were drooling all over themselves to proclaim Alex the next king. Full disclosure: I’m a Yankee fan who has never been crazy about ARod. He is immensely talented, but comes up small when the kiddies in the stands are cheering the most.
I’m not hatin’ on the brotha but since the Yankees traded Alfonso Soriano for Rodriguez, they haven’t won jack. Does anyone but me remember the clutch bombs Soriano hit when he was still a kid? Ok, ok, this wasn’t intended to be a rant, but c’mon man. Put up or shut up. I’m not madatcha for steroids because everyone probably juiced because of ridiculous pressure to perform, but use this as inspiration to have that Bonds like season everyone has proclaimed you capable of or be peace…
