Was Barry Bonds given the DEATH SENTENCE?

According to his comments he was.

Should he be in the Hall of Fame? He has 2 years left on the ballot to get in. He was 14% short last time

How can you tell the story of MLB without including Barry Bonds name?

Fuck Bonds. Should have thought about treating people decent along the way.

He sold his career and soul to cheat the game. He wants sympathy now? Fuck him.

In addition to being a cheater, he's a rotten human being ... Treated teammates, the press and especially fans like shit his entire career.

I hope he never gets in.

He worked for the marlins after he retired but sucked at being a hitting coach also so he can blame himself .

He was a dick but there are probably a lot of them in sports. Just based on the on field performance, i never saw a guy with a better eye at the plate. He never seemed to swing at a ball out of the zone and if you threw one over the plate he squared it up.

I have given up on the steroid era. I think many were doing it for many years and they still couldn't do what Bonds did. I just consider it the steroid era and take it for what it was. I thought the baseball was exciting during that time

He gave himself a death sentence the moment he took PED's and cheated the sport, I think some day he'll get in, but I hope he doesn't, if/when he does there should be an asterisk on his plaque

He actually didn't do such a bad job as hitting coach, but he and Mattingly didn't get along, so the team got rid of him
