For fans of Barry Bonds, there won't be any "asterisk", just like there wasn't one for Roger Maris. I wasn't referring to Bonds fans. I was referring to fans of the game. But to your point about Maris, he could not help that MLB added 8 games to the schedule. What Bonds did was a choice. Not to mention that Maris wasn't pumping himself full of "the clear" during that 8 game stretch.

What a sham. I watched last night and realized how truely great Arron's accomplishment was and how truely great A-Rod's will be. But Bonds cheated plain and simple. He cheated the game, he cheated the fans and he cheated himself. I say that because without using steriods he would have still been a hall of fame player. But by using steriods Bonds discredited the last 7 years of his career. At a point where all baseball player begin to show signs of age, Bonds hit a career high in HR in 2000 with 49 and the next year broke the single season HR record hitting 73 followed by seasons of 46, 45 and 45. That is 258 artificial HRs. I say that because steriods like "the clear", which Balco officials have stated Bonds used, do not only increase strenght but also increase bat speed, aid in recovery of weakened muscles (due to age) and even more frightening improve eyesight. Steroids made Bonds a better baseball player. That cannot be argued, the same way steroids helpped Tim Montgomery breaks the 100 meter world record in sprinting. I am most upset because Bonds has now diminished his own accomplishments. Now in the eyes of so many fans his statistics, as impressive as they are, will always carry an asterisk.

Best-of-9 Series? Boras has Selig's ear

A five game sweep? 7 games are enough. 9 may turn out to be painful

Pats Making Move For Moss

I was wondering if anyone can help me answer this question. Is there any 6'5" corner with a 40+ inch vertical that runs a sub 4.3 40? If not, I find myself believing that Tom Brady is going to have a descent year throwing lob balls down field to a CB covered Moss. Of course if Moss somehow beats the corner, it will be near impossible for him to jump oer a 5'10" FS to grab a well thrown ball by the first descent QB Moss has been paired with since Culpepper's last healthy sesaon. I mean when you look at it like that, Moss has no chance of putting together a good season.

Pats Making Move For Moss

Moss will keep his mouth shut as long as Tom Brady can get him the ball. With Stallworth in the two slot, no team can afford to double cover Moss. I can just picture him jumping over any corner in the league on a one-on-one fly route 60-yards downfield. This years Pat's team has a shot at 19-0 assuming no one gets injured and I'm saying this as a guy who hates the Patriots. I am shocked the way the NFL is set up (salary cap, FA, etc.) that a team could get so much help in one offseason. the only way this team doesnt win it all is if Tom Brady doesnt show up for the Super Bowl.

Samardzija chooses baseball.

Wrong Choice. He would have been a top ten NFL draft pick according to Mel Kiper. The second best wide reciever in the nation behind Calvin Johnson. Besides that fact that excessing in Notre Dame football is a lot more glamorous than excessing in baseball, straight money earnings of a top 10 pick in last years draft means his signing bonus would have been more than 10.5 million dollars. Thats guaranteed money. He'd play on Sunday's, on national TV, with a major NFL franchise instead of on weekdays for a Single A with 500 people in the stands.

Chargers flushed, Peyton vs. Brady again

Tom Brady is the most over-rated quarterback of all time. He has never one a close playoff game without the foot of his kicker and the only reason he is the player he is today is because of his former genius offensive coordinator, now head coach of Notre Dame, Charlie Weis. Weis has done with Brady Quinn, who two years ago was the worst quarterback in divsion 1 football, what he did with Tom Brady in New England. Without Weis Brady was and will be again just a 6th round back up out of Michigan.
