"I'm not playing baseball anymore after this," Bonds was quoted by USA Today in a story posted on its Web site Sunday.

"The game (isn't) fun anymore. I'm tired of all of the crap going on. I want to play this year out, hopefully win, and once the season is over, go home and be with my family. Maybe then everybody can just forget about me."


I just thought the baseball fans on here would find this interesting. I hope he retires, he just isnt the right guy to break the home run record IMO. Your thoughts?

The sooner the better, I'm tired of all the crap that is Barry Bonds.

I remember Bond's had some rough times last year, however exactly what he did is not really coming back to me. Could you fill me in?

Its always quite hilarious how he always sits in front of the press to complain about all of the attention that they give him. If he doesn't want the press, he should shut up and quite complaining with that annoying Mike Tyson pitched voice.

Boo fu**ing hoo. Next time, don't do steriods and try to cover it up. He's the only person I know that actually gets offended by people calling him out for his crap.

That is definately not going to happen Tom, particularly if he breaks Aaron's record this year. The only member of the 500/500 club, 708 home runs (plus whatever he gets next year), 7 MVPs, 8 Gold Gloves. He is arguably the finest all around player in the history of the game. Not to mention that until recently he was also one of the most durable players ever. He has to be in on the first ballot purely based on sabermetrics, otherwise Baseball is a joke.

I need some of what you are on. If barry bonds goes into the Hall, I'll screw Janet Reno and whoop whilst doing it. I'd like to see bonds stick his bulbous head in a wood chipper. I'll fill it with gas. Complete scumbag cheater. I wouldn't shake his hand for $1,000,000.

I completely agree with the idea of what you are saying.

I don't think Bonds makes it in the Hall first ballot. The man cheated the game of baseball by taking 'roids. He's a 'roid head. I don't think the game has ever seen a single seasn to seasn body mass improvement other than what Bonds did. You simply don't build muscle mass that much without help. Anywya. I'll be glad to see him leave the game. The guy is a joke. Now he wants everyone to feel sorry for him because the media is "picking on him". Get over yourself, you sorry, pathetic excuse for a ball player.

Boo hoo, the game isn't fun. Why doesn't he just quit now? That way he could avoid the steroid controversy and retire with his legacy untainted.  Wink

I guess he ought to be durable, given all the steroids he's probably taken. Given that he and McGwire - among others - attained their records while being juiced, I'm not so sure he will get in on the first ballot. Especially if he is indicted or otherwise exposed in the ongoing BALCO follies.

After all, if it were based only on statistics, Pete Rose ought to be in the HOF.

Tom at MSY

The only thing that would keep him out on the first ballot would be a positive test for steroids. Regardless of most people's opinion of him as a person, it will be damn tough to justify keeping the best player of a generation out of the hall of fame without concrete evidence like a positive test. Bonds without steroids is still the best player of his generation, that's how talented he is.



It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems with just potatoes.

Actually, his durability streak occured before it is alleged he started using steroids

Amen man! Bonds could have come clean, literally and figuratively, as could have Sosa, but both hid behind the MLBPA and the union.

No question. But that's not where the argument begins or ends, as far as I'm concerned.

Hardly. Without the steroids, at least a third of those home runs don't happen in my estimation.

************************

This whole soap opera has been very well crafted....from his knee injury and subsequent weight loss ("didn't want to put as much stress on the knee"), to the timeline of the steroid testing and hearings, it's no coincidence in my book. No freaking way. This is all a well orchestrated and finely concocted scheme. It's almost so well done it's laughable if it weren't tainting the integrity of the game.

And he's a boorish jerk to boot.

I gotta go along with Logan on this one.

One of the side benefits of steroids. And juicing has been going on longer than any of us would care to admit. We just know better now what to look for.

Well, take away a third of those home runs and he still has 471 left, plus over 500 stolen bases, and 8 golden gloves. Plus, something a lot of people forget is that he has become a much better hitter over the last four of five years because he is more patient at the plate. Bonds in 1990 would have been consistently hitting 40-50 home runs a season with the patience he has today. Plate dicipline has made a greater impact on his stats the last few years than the extra muscle built from steroids. The guy hit .370 a few years back. Do you think steroids gave him the combination of patience and hand-eye coordination needed for that?

The steroids probably kept him healthy enough to make all those plate appearances.

Look, there's no doubt Bonds is/was an incredible talent. But we all know that Hank Aaron and Babe Ruth didn't use steriods to reach 700 home runs, and if Bonds did use steriods, it makes his "achievement" somewhat hollow.
