It's way past time to turn my 'wicked keyboard' to the latest developments in MBL steroid use. Most of my latest thoughts come from reading the excerpt of the Bonds expose that Sports Illustrated published recently.
Barry Bonds is totally guilty of steroids, misrepresentation, and perjury. He should be banned from baseball, the Hall, and the record books.
McGwire, Sosa, and Palmeiro are guilty and should be similarly banned. Not sure about Schilling (the other Congressional testifier).
The Giants' owner is guilty of not looking close enough or looking the other way. The other owners are guilty, too.
Dusty Baker was Bonds' coach and is now the coach of my team: the Cubs. He's guilty of not looking close enough or looking the other way.
Bud Selig is most certainly guilty of not looking close enough or looking the other way.
We all strongly suspected, at least, that this stuff was going on. It's proven now and it's a disgrace to baseball.
I say no records, no Hall for steroid-using players.
