Bonds and his colleagues are forever tainted in my view with trying to get an easy fix...and the reason it was so easy is because of Free Agency giving way too much to the player and hurting owners when they tried to keep salaries at a reasonable level as to not raise ticket prices
You have a million dollar contract and want more...cheating no longer becomes about morality as it does about $$$ and the price you pay? You might get banished but not after a huge payoff...Hank Aaron and Babe Ruth didn't have that luxury, they were not making 500 times the median american salary...nope, not even Ruth could say that
So they got their multi millions at the cost of the legacy of the game that paid them, but they are laughing to the bank and nothing we say nor do will have any effect
For me...they do not come up in the greatest discussions...and if I had a vote for the HOF, I would NEVER vote for any of them
