this thread is about disgraced sluggers, and un-disgraced sluggers. stick to it.
a dozen years ago, bonds decided to build his own pedestal. custom fit, just for him. mlb's pedestals were not good enough to satisfy his greed. many were fooled that he was the best, surpassing ruth, then aaron.
no matter what, baseball will now always need sluggers, more than any other aspect of the game, except pitching. ruth proved that, ninety years ago, when he changed baseball forever, with a decade of slugging batsmanship, that will never happen again.. what they will be saying in ten years, can only get worse, as it surely isn't what was being said, even ten years ago, today.
disgraced, or un-disgraced? too obvious. go ahead and disgrace wladamir balentien. we will never forget your ****-poor views on everything else that is baseball.
