It's a farce, people...wake up and smell the coffee! Do you really think Barry Bonds won the popular vote as a starter for the All Star game? If so, I've got a certain worn out first baseman/DH facing a steroids inquiry that I'd like to sell you, dirt cheap!
Seriously, nobody likes this guy. Even in his hometown he's looked at with skepticism. MLB simply "adjusted" the results a bit so that he'd make the roster. No big deal. They've done it before and they'll do it again. Anything for a buck, which isn't exactly the worst motto in the world!
I choose to remember Bonds from his Pirates days, when he was known as a thin, fast man. Hard to believe it's the same guy. The one pictured here could probably curl up and fit inside Bonds' batting helmet these days!
