Bonds is an ass!!!

Yeah, the public just loves to hate Barry Bonds. McGwire and Sosa were friendly, outgoing, media-savvy and said cheesy **** like "Now I'm going to go to Disneyland", and so their physical condition, inconsistent HR, slugging percentage, on base percentage, etc never came into question. Another thing that makes me mad is that Bond's has also been consistently good at his position, winning 9 Golden Gloves, whereas McGwire won...1!!.In his whole career. Not to mention Bonds is the only member of the 500-500 club, and the only person to hit 40 HR's and steal 40 bases in the same season, and that was way back in the early 90's. Bonds is/was a dominant player in all facets of the game, not just hitting.

Ruth will ALWAYS be second in my book, not just because of the the Hrs but because he was GREAT with his fans.

Oh yeah, no doubt he is a ****. It just severely annoys me when people have Bonds' skill come into question over steroids. His stats were amazing before 99-00 where his physique really started to morph. I think too often people let their perception of him cloud his accomplishments. Ass or not, Bonds is the best player of his era.

Yeah sorry, was typing without thinking there...Conseco did that as well, but nevertheless the point still stands. Bonds is/was one of the greatest of all time.

Forgot to mention that Bonds plays in one of the worst hitter ballparks in the MLB, Sosa played in that Little League ball park called Wrigley Field when he got his. Bonds would have already broken the record if he played at Wrigley Field.

I really can't wait for Bonds to just get it over with. Then we won't have to hear about this until next season when he challenges Hammerin' Hank.

The funniest thing is that the worst thing (proven, worst thing) he has done is be an ******* to the media. You see stories of how many football players getting involved in high speed chases, high on coke holding a gun to their illegitimate child's head, and it gets about 10 seconds of your attention. I would venture to say those individuals have a vastly greater degree of assitude (made that up) for completely wasting their potential then Bonds does for being an ******* while proliferating his.

Who cares as long as he hits bombs out of the park LOL, he's no where near the same level as Terrell Owens, he's the worst San Francisco athlete with talentOriginally Posted by wildman536

Everyone would be a fatass like he was as well and not a Monster like Barry.Originally Posted by Iron Warrior
I guarentee the people holding that sign would be the first one to ask Bonds for an autograph he they caught a homer he hit. Then they would call him an ahole for not signing it. People are f***** stupid.

If Puljios continues his pace of 70 "clean" HRs, Can we go back to blaming "Juiced" bats and balls? or just bad pitching?

Good point about the NFL... and that's not to mention all of the crap that goes on in the NBA.Originally Posted by Mulletsoldier
Bonds is a jerk to the media, so the media paints a bigger picture of him as a jerk. I have no doubt that his a grade A d!ck, but we've help to create him.
Pujols is the Man. GO CARDS!!!!

ahh yeah another St Louis fan!! :squat: :squat:Originally Posted by TenMan
Also consider this--- for Babe Ruth it took about 3000-4000 Less at bats to get to 714 than Hank and Barry. Not to mention the time he was a pitcher.
Ruth-- about 8000 At bats to reach 714
Hank-- about 11-12000
Bonds-- about 11000
I dont want to hear how much better they are than the Babe they will NEVER play under the conditions that babe did, Trains to games, etc..
