Barry Bonds in Boston

All you Sox fans know that inter-league play is going to bring the San Francisco Giants to Fenway this weekend. With the Giants will be the biggest cheater in this history of modern baseball: Barry Steroids Bond. Bond, who is 8 homers away from beating the all time home run record set by Hank Aaron, isn't going to find a warm welcome here. He's loathed. Hated. Reviled. There is absolutely not one positive thing you can say about him. He has admitted to using steroids and human growth hormones, although he says it was 'not knowingly'. Um..right, Barry. You didn't know you were pouring that poison into your body as your neck grew like a sequoia tree and your balls shrunk to resemble blueberries. Maybe the people of San Francisco are blind and dumb, but here in Boston we don't like our baseball players to be cheaters. We hate A-Rod because he refuses to play fair against the Red Sox. He's infantile, but at least he's not abusing drugs to such an extent that it's physically obvious to anyone without vision deficiencies.

There's already discussions about the reception Bonds is going to get here. I'm hoping that it doesn't get ugly and sticks to verbal booing. But Boston... our baseball fans are rabid and we just do not tolerate cheaters. I have a feeling that there will be stuff tossed onto the field when Bonds comes up to hit.

Bonds was voted the least popular player in both leagues. His own teammates hate him. He's got all the side effects of steroid use. He's mean, nasty, rude, violent, and arrogant. And yet he's still playing baseball. I have to ask why he's allowed to continue as a professional player when it's a known fact that he's using steroids. I don't get it. But what I do get is that he's going to get exactly the reception he deserves here.

He's a horrible example for young children that follow the game. Think about it. We teach our kids not to cheat, to be kind to our teammates, and to respect the rules of the game. Bonds does none of those things, and yet is still paid a multi-million dollar salary to publically cheat. It makes me sick.

Hopefully, if the fans do throw things, it will be like the fake money they threw at *spit* Damon when he came back. That was funny.

I hope he's hitless while he's here.

Hi, I found you through Malady/Life by Candelight. Great blog--I'm looking forward to catching up with old posts. The politics of poverty is our most critical and overlooked/misunderstood issue.

yes, let's all boo the greatest player in the past 50 years. as if he's the only guy who (allegedly) used steroids. look as his overall career. he's 4th on pittsburgh's all-time home run list. did you know that? back in the days when he was skinny as all get out. the folks that boo him don't know jack shit about baseball.
