For a while there it looked like Barry Bonds might actually be blackballed out of Major League Baseball, and that Hank Aaron’s home run record would be temporarily safe. Not that safe, as it were. After pandering his wares down at the Winter Meetings, Bonds has reportedly agreed to a 1-year $16 million deal to remain with the Giants. Pending a physical. The doctor chosen for that job will certainly have an interesting day.
If Bonds breaks that record—and I hope he doesn’t—I hope it’s at home. Baseball doesn’t need a big ugly scene when its most hallowed record is broken. Ick.
