Barry Bonds was found guilty on obstruction of justice charges but was not convicted on any of the more serious three alleged perjury charges.
Baseball on the other hand…
Barry Bonds escaped prison time being charged with obstruction of justice instead of perjury. But the word “guilty” will always be associated with Bonds and this trial for those that just want to see Bonds hang in effigy, point the finger and say ” See, I told you so!”
Once again, baseball walks away unscathed – its already tarnished history takes another hit but what else is new. The sport won’t suffer at the gate or in the apparel market. Baseball isn’t doing anything to stop PEDs from being used. Manny Ramirez was caught and suspended a second time – how good of a job is the Commissioner and others doing at policing this thing?
We know what the players have done and apparently are still doing, there’s nothing more to figure out concerning them.
It’s time we shine the interrogation light on Bud Selig and his minions.
