So ESPN keeps harping on this Barry Bonds story. You know, that he's so disgusted that he may never come back after his knee surgery rehab.
Oh yeah? Well GOOD RIDDANCE. I find it kinda fishy that Barry was improving and then all of a sudden, on the same day as the Congressional Baseball Hearing, he needs to have knee surgery? According to previous reports, all he was supposed to do was see his own doctor in SF for a follow-up that day, and next thing you know he's in surgery? That doesn't compute. Barry needs an excuse to get small. If he can't be on the 'roids, he needs to cover up his withdrawal. What better way than to be layed up with a "bum knee"? He'll be at home, out of the public eye, and presumably won't be able to work out as much, hence he'd be smaller if and when he comes back....
And how convenient is it that Barry can blame the media for his little snit, and say he's never coming back because of what the media has done to his family. PLEASE, dude, we're not stupid. We don't think you can be "Barry Bonds" without steroids either. But don't think this is some kind of controversy-free graceful exit from the game before you get popped for your steroid use. It's ok to come out and not hit 40 home runs this year, even if you were healthy. Everyone has an off year, right?
Wussing out of baseball, even if it's only for the season, based on some press comments is just as bad as McGwire refusing to discuss his steroid-related past in front of Congress, and makes you look just as guilty, dude.
