Withholding the honour to Barry Bonds is petty beyond belief -- except that it's happening. The Hall of Fame guys are so damned sanctimonious and dogmatic that it curdles belief. Criteria for entry into the Hall should only be a player's record in the game, none of this drivel about "integrity" that the MLB is judging without proof.

My son understands the game, but not baseball's soul. He is always talking about weird-sounding stats like Batting Runs Above Average, (B.R.A.A.), not to be confused with Batting Runs Above Replacement (B.R.A.R.). It's like conversing with Mr. Spock. Where, oh where did I go wrong?
