Barry Bonds showed up at San Francisco Giants spring training camp on Monday and he was looking incredibly skinny.
Bonds will be serving as a hitting instructor for a week, and he answered some questions from the media as part of his arrival. One of the subjects that came up was the Hall of Fame. Bonds has received fewer than 37 percent of the vote each of the two years he has been on the ballot. He believes that’s some b.s.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Bonds had a firm response when asked if he should be in Cooperstown.
“Without a doubt,” he said.
I couldn’t stand Bonds when he played and really dislike guys who cheated the game, but I couldn’t agree with him more. How can you have a Hall of Fame that omits one of the greatest hitters of all time? It’s so silly and makes little sense. It makes even less sense when you realize that there are already steroids users in the Hall of Fame, which is what both Jose Canseco and Jack McDowell have already said.
