What’s up sports fans? It looks like Barry Bonds believes he can win his case. If you remember he was indicted on perjury charges, that he lied on the stand and that he knowingly took steroids. I can see why he would think he can win. Let’s keep it real. The burden of proof is on the federal prosecutors for this case. Since the prosecution can’t go after him for using steroids, because if they did that they would also have to go after a lot of other people, they decided to go after his judgment of character.

The problem I have with this whole charade is that the powers that be probably should have done something about this a long time ago. Let’s be honest. Major League Baseball a few years back had a lock out, and no one was playing baseball. The buying public became furious and stated that baseball is this country’s past time and how dare baseball players whine and complain about their salaries. That same buying community also stated that they remembered when the game wasn’t tainted by revenues, and it’s players played for the simple love of the game. They’re right they did. That same buying community needs to remember, the game isn’t they same and hasn’t been for decades.

After the MLB and it’s players came to an agreement and went to playing ball again, then the buying public yelled “Foul ball!!”  “Your charging us to much money to come and watch these over paid, over glorified, baseball gods to play a simple game of baseball, and what’s worse we’re not getting much of a great performance from these outrageous ticket prices were paying.”  A few years goes by and all of a sudden baseball spectators started liking baseball again, why? Because now they get to watch the Bash Brothers Jose Canseco, and Mark McGwire hit hundreds of home runs.

The can see an average of 4-10 home runs a game, and no one stopped to wonder why or how all of a sudden baseball became “High Energy BaseBall”. What is interesting is that the buying public got what it wanted. Better baseball for the higher ticket prices. And for awhile all was good in MLB land, until someone got caught taking it’s version of a high energy drink. People in the business were aware they just did the “Don’t ask don’t tell.” routine and everythiing was fine. After Barry got caught then it came out that he wasn’t the only one on a high energy drink. No matter what we think, the federal court will do with Barry what they will do, if they convict him.

Should Barry had come clean in the beginning, that’s for Barry to decide. He’s the one on the federal hot seat. Should he be on the federal hot seat, I don’t believe he should. In my opinion Barry did like everyone else did in MLB baseball. Gave the MLB buying public what it demanded from it’s players, better looking baseball. More homeruns, more to cheer about, more reasons to go to the ballparks, buy hotdogs, beer and put more profits in the owner pockets. Barry Bonds is what the buying public made and wanted him to be a Home Run King. No other player has hit over 700 home runs yet.  Remember folks it’s ALLBAYAREASPORTS.COM. Bay Area Sports Magnified!

    Good perspectives here. Americans want to have their cake & eat it, too. We demand entertainment but also, to make ourselves feel altruistic, demand role models. Barry gave us the first, but didn’t provide the latter. In the end it was his decision and people should just let him live with it without feeling they have to drag him through the court system. Just my 2 cents.
