HBO — To MikeK RE: Barry Bonds Scandal

MikeK: Barry Bonds has become a very tough subject for baseball fans. I don't know that I entirely agree with Jon Saraceno of USA Today that the next time Bonds leaves the park he should stay out, but he isn't alone in his views on this. I hope the late 1990s and early 2000s era in baseball don't become a historical rival to the Black Sox scandal of 1919, but it sure looks like it will.

DFO: Dunno how many of you are interested in sports or cheating in sports. But this one is of interest to me since I've been a long-time S.F. Giants fan and have watched with interest and concern as scandal swirls around the best player on my team. I'd like to think it ain't so. But the evidence has become overwhelming against Bonds. Meanwhile, the Giants are circling the wagons around their superstar here. Two questions: Does this scandal matter to you? If so, what should be done about it?
