The sanctimonious baseball purists want to elevate Aaron Judge. Don’t let them.

The real shame is that Bonds' whole career was overshadowed by the cloud of suspicion surrounding his chase for the home run record. When he was in Pittsburgh, he was one of the best ballplayers I've ever seen, a legit five-tool player who would likely be in the HoF already, despite his occasional surliness.
