    Here's the story, or food for thought.

    It'd be the one thing Selig's done right since he became "commissioner."

    Amen, but as long as he doesn't pick and choose. "Plead the Fifth," as much as I enjoyed 1998, is an utter fraud.

    Bonds should stay on top, unless we are just going to wipe out every record from the last 15 years.

    This is a really dumb idea.

    Selig is going to retroactively suspend ARod for breaking a rule that did not have a punishment at the time?

    I don't know what will take less time, the MLBPA and ARod's lawyers taking MLB and Selig to court or the judge laughing Selig and MLB out of his courtroom.

    More sports journalist irresponsibility.

    I don't want to hear YOU say Selig is thinking about pulling Bonds.

    I want to see Selig's quote.

    Fuck sake.

    Stupid, stupid, stupid idea. Patronizing BS. As long as we let spit-ballers, pill-poppers, and those who benefited from giant mounds and giant ballparks into the Hall, as long as those who pitched to Bonds were just as roided up as he was, this is complete nonsense.

    I'm curious how well this would hold up in court, though:

    "But the commissioner said he sent a memo banning the drugs in 1997 and reminded players and coaches that they were illegal without a prescription."

    So you didn't agree with the All-Star game tie?

    Just Bud playing PR man ... "this is breaking my heart...." What bullshit.

    He is not going to do anything because he can't.

    Um, the linked story references an interview he did with USA Today. It says in there that Selig said he was considering it.

    How good of a quote is "I'm thinking of removing Bonds from the home run leader list."? I've been told if you can paraphrase, you should. If you can't write in a story what someone said without quoting them, then we're just running Q&As.
