Moments ago, Barry Bonds became the all-time home run king. It was a no-doubter off Mike Bacsik of the Nationals, a long fly over the rightfield fence on a 3-2 pitch. It gave me a sinking feeling in the stomach as soon as he hit it. Bonds threw up his arms immediately, then pumped his hands toward the sky, presumably a tribute to his father. Giants fans cheered. The guy who caught the thing looked like he’d been pummelled, and was escorted out of the park surrounded by a bunch of cops. Commissioner Bud Selig was absent, but Willie Mays was there, and Hank Aaron appeared in a classy if somewhat distant message on the video board. It’s over now. No asterisk necessary; we’re all going to remember the circumstances thay got us here. Eventually he’ll be caught. But for the moment, he’s your champ.
