    Just want to run some stats why Barry Bonds should should go to the HOF, no questions asked:

    13 All-Stars
    7 MVPs
    8 Gold Gloves
    .299 Career Batting Average
    5784 Total Bases (Ranked 6th all time, everyone in the top 25 except Pete Rose(7) and Andre Dawson (24) is in the HOF)
    7th in career RBIs
    1st in career walks
    $172,711,352 career salary (so far)

    and if you like the stolen base numbers, he's swiped over 500 bags.

    This guy would be way more of a monstrosity than Pete Rose. But count on baseball to **** it up; they've done it to Rose, Flood and Jackson already.

    I VOTE BONDS IN!

    I VOTE HIM OUT. He's a steroid Cheating waste of space. He doesn't even deserve to still be playing MLB let alone to be put in the HOF

    You're crazy mate:yes:

    He's a great player; I saw him turn around a 99mph fastball from Gagne and hit it 400 feet foul. I think Rose should be in the HOF as well as Bonds even tho I hate both of those guys. Let's remember that when Ruth played some of the best baseball players in the country weren't allowed to play because of the color of their skin. I forget the players name in the negro leagues (Josh Gibson?) but one of those guys hit over 800 homeruns.

    I hope Bonds plays for the Giants this year as he completely tears that clubhouse apart thus ensuring that the Giants will not be in the postseason once again. :)

    Giants suck (except for Zito). :yes:

    I bet you Cal took all sorts of supplements to keep his 'streak' going. Just becasue there is a witchhunt for Barry doesn't mean he shouldnt go to the HOF. Last time i heard, it was an award for a career in baseball. He had the best career ever in baseball. Your crazy...Mate!

    so suddenly its ok to take steriods and get into the HOF because of the Steroids.

    YEAH RIGHT. thats not how sports should be played and the Cheats like Barry Bonds should be kicked out of MLB and their stats Irrelevant

    THATS HOW SPORTS SHOULD BE PLAYED, WITH HONOUR AND RESPECT FOR THE RULES WHICH BARRY BONDS LACK

    Its common knowledge that Gaylord Perry scuffed balls and threw spitballs. Why don't we throw his numbers out?

    They have confirmed that at least 100 players that used roids. This was a survey taken by the players union, they have not released names, just the number using steroids.

    So if now know that over 100 players were using steroids, WHY WAS BARRY BONDS' OPS 1.421 AND HAVE A BATTING AVERAGE OF .362 IN 2004?

    Please! Baseball is a game, and he was the best player to every play it.

    Steroids don't help you gain the hand-eye coordination it takes to hit a baseball.

    Bonds' HR totals benifited from the roids, not his average.

    You didn't eliminate anything, Bonds will always have "haters"

    Some of the hate is deserved, some of it not so much, but they'll always be out there.
