Barry Bonds

Steroids or not, it takes a great athlete to be able to hit a baseball. I do not condone the use of illegal drugs or illegal performance enhancers, but lets give this guy some credit. I am not a huge Bonds fan, but the numbers that he has put up are pretty good. I went to Game 5 of the NLDS one year in Atlanta and sat behind Barry in left field. He is an enormous human. Do I think he used Steroids? Yes. Do I think he should be in the Hall? Yes. Hank Aaron and Ruth are still Home Run Kings for what they did in the era without the training there is now days. Technology has also helped Bonds hit some home runs. Personally, I don't care for Bonds, but his feats should not go unnoticed.
