The Rocket is back and Barry is about to pass Aaron. I guess as a lifelong baseball fan, I should be excited by these developments, but I am not…not even a little. Clemens annual un-retirement is getting more tiring than Brett Favre’s annual farewell tour. Isn’t obvious to everyone that Clemens just wants to skip spring training and only use his ancient arm for 4 months. And he doesn’t even like showing up for games much anymore. Can you imagine if another athlete, say Randy Moss, behaved in this manner? Some fans would want him shipped to Guantanamo.
Bonds, on the other hand, stands just 11 homeruns away from breaking sport’s most hallowed record…..am I only one depressed by this? Meanwhile, his former “trainer” and “friend”, Greg Anderson is rotting in jail for contempt of court. He’s been there since last August for not testifying to a grand jury about Bonds involvement in the BALCO scandal. Talk about loyalty. You have to wonder what kind of deal he and the aging slugger have struck. Anybody still think Bonds is “innocent”? If so, do you believe in the Easter Bunny too??
