No one cares about Barry Bonds. The Dodgers don't want to talk about it. The rest of baseball just boos the man. One short of the Babe's home run mark of 715, and it's only the fans in San Francisco who give a crap.
Bonds' feat of 714 is nothing to laugh at. It's one of those things that take both great skill and incredible stamina. You've got to be the best in the game for over a decade to even think about it. And once you get to the point where you're breaking records, you're already a few years past your prime.
So why don't we care?
Because the guy cheated. He took drugs to make him a better player. And everybody knows it.
One of these days, Bonds will finally hit 714. Then 715. These should be some of the best weeks of his career. This man should be on top of the world.
But we don't care.
