Is anyone else beat down by the Bonds steroid scandal? I am officially at the point of not caring. Barry Bonds is not my favorite person and from the evidence that I've been subjected to through articles and interviews and news reports, it looks as though Bonds was a frequent user. So, I wasn't stunned to find out that there's a new book coming out riddled with attempts to prove Barry's guilt. It appears that the authors were on a mission to take him all the way downtown with this one. It's all business. I just think it's tragic. Bonds was a phenomenal player without the drugs. He was probably even a future hall of famer. It's just too bad that a man blessed with such ability needed to pull an Icarus. Like Steinbrenner, but in his own way. And if he was indeed as heavy a user as they say, his body will pay the price. I hope it was worth it to him.
In Red Sox news, today's game was a total pooper. 12-1, Marlins. Wowzers. I didn't think that the Marlins had any players left after this winter. Who knew?
The current Spring Training record for the Sox, even though it's totally meaningless: 5W, 4L.
