Also, I'm still a bit skeptical about Bond's Steroid use, I can't say I entirely believe all of the myths behind it. Anyway, Congrats Bonds. Next destination HR #800.
Costas pretty much owned Bonds' a$$ on Mike and Mike this morning. I'll try to find the link/transcript. Bottom line is MellonHead is no hero, no superman, and certainly no home run king. 756* is now just a number and carries little meaning. Bud Selig needs an asterisk as much as Barroid but Selig's name isn't in any record books and he certainly didn't touch "the cream and the clear".
