714

Other than A.J. Pierzynski, is there any baseball player more hated than Barry Bonds? Remember that Bugs Bunny cartoon where he plays by himself against the Gashouse Gorillas, that overgrown team of dirty cheating thugs? All Bonds needs is a Gorilla uniform and a stogie and he’d fit right in. Even though you can question his motives and his moral fiber, 714 is still quite an accomplishment. I’ll offer a very subtle tip of the cap to Barry and quickly redirect my attention to the good and the great things about baseball. Things that don’t elicit hatred and cause fans to boo and scream insults and throw syringes onto the field. I can’t wait until we’re past all this.
