Baseball has always been a game of scandal, so the steroid-powered Barry Bonds home run juggernaut of the last 8 years (culminating with a record 756th last night) should come as no shock.
In Bond's defense, he's faced with batting against juiced pitchers, so why shouldn't he 'roid-up himself? It's a vicious cycle.
Instead of giving Bonds the cold shoulder, baseball commisioner Bud Selig should break the wall of secrecy afforded major league players through their powerful union. Enforce zero tolerance for all offenders, so guys like Aaron can keep their hard-earned records.
