Baseball and America will never forgive Barry Bonds.
America has a way of forgiving who it wants, when it wants. This has crossed over into the sports realm with the rise in use of performance enhancing drugs.
Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa, Mark McGwire, Andy Petitte, Roger Clemens and Lance Armstrong have been linked to PEDs over the years. McGwire, Petitte and Clemens are all back in baseball without fuss or muss. Hell, Pete Rose’s chances of making the hall have improved.
Will that change if Bonds decides to re-enter the game?
