This is brutal

  1. And we know for sure that he never drank the "leaded" coffee in the clubhouse or threw back greenies to make it through the season?

    He did it too! is a kid's excuse. Bonds is what he is, likewise Biggio. Judge 'em on their own merits.

    I thought I learned my lesson a long time ago, but I have to keep reminding myself on this one...

    Is it any more painful than seeing Babe Ruth in a Braves uniform, or Joe Montana with the Chiefs? There are too many examples of athletes holding on past their prime. coughBrettFavrecough.

    Exactly. I would love to see Biggio get to 3,000 and then walk away into retirement after this season.
  5. Oz, we've disagreed on things in the past, but I'm in complete agreement with you here. I'd love to see Biggio hit 3K, then ride off into the sunset.

    And then ride into Cooperstown, whenever it calls. I failed to add that in the original post.

    Watching selfish players hurt their teams in quest of individual records is usually painful.

    Folks, there's never even been a sniff of a hint of a suggestion that Biggio has ever done anything illegal with regards to his playing days or drugs. Just because there's so much smoke from the Bonds camp doesn't mean all players therefore become suspect.

    Biggio's a good guy with lots of baseball heart. But it is painful to watch him struggle to 3,000.

    Um...agree on Ruth and Favre, but didn't Joe Montana have some very good years with the Chiefs? He took them to the AFC Championship game, didn't he?

    It's awe-inspiring to watch Bonds.

    I'm amazed to see what modern pharmaceutical science can do.

    Until there is absolute proof that Bonds cheated, I think the court of public opinion should give him a break. And wouldn't it be something if word got out that "good guy" Biggio cheated?

    nice thought, boots, but "absolute proof" isn't even required to send someone to death row.
