Yet another one has dropped to say that cheering for or against Barry Bonds to break the record is an issue of race. I have to start wondering if it’s a difference of race or integrity. To me, I’d be rooting against McGwire or Sosa just as equally as I am against Bonds — black, white, or Hispanic, it doesn’t matter to me. From FanHouse, another Bonds poll.

I was reading an article about D-Backs manager Bob Melvin that says he doesn’t outwardly show a lot of emotion. That doesn’t bother me. Neither of my hometown managers — Grady Little nor Mike Scioscia — are overly emotional, yet both teams are successful. So what do you think, must managers show emotion to be successful?
This guy who runs a Chicago sports memorabilia store has gotten rid of all the Barry Bonds items in house. They also plan to have a bonfire the day he breaks the record. Wow.
