And speaking of horses' asses...
Barry Bonds' batting line from last night:
4PA, 2BB, 1H, 1K, .500BA, .750OBP
And most importantly:
Barry Bonds is widely, if not unanimously, regarded as simply not a very good guy. He gets criticized for his attitude; his relationship with teammates, fans, and the media; his training and pharmaceutical regimen; his body armour; etc. etc. ad nauseam. I'm sure most of the criticism is deserved.
But any sports pundit who attempts to argue that Barry Bonds is somehow bad for baseball is verifiably insane. He is simply the most compelling on-field figure in the sport.
