It just keeps getting worse for Barry. He can't seem to shake this infection. Since he can't do rehab right now, it's pretty clear that he won't be back anytime soon.

Couldn't have happened to a more deserving guy.

I wonder if its just a ruse until the steroids are out of his system.

I have no desire to see another human being, particularly one whose worst transgressions are not in the arena of evil but more along the lines of "rude to press" and "breaks records," have such health problems. That said, it's nice that, just possibly, Hank Aaron's record (and for that matter, Babe's second place) might be safe after all.

I gotta believe that Bonds is not gonna break Aaron's record. When you consider his age and now his serious injury history, he's not going to hit 40 HRs a year anymore. If he came close to 30, that would be amazing. I'm kind of figuring that he won't play this year, so that means that he has to play two more years, and hit 20 HRs a year to break Aaron. Which means that he'll be 43 and the year will be 2007. I don't see it happening because he's already said that he doesn't have a real desire to break the record in the first place.

I agree with a lot that's been said... I'm glad that the chances of him breaking Hank Aaron's lead, and Babe Ruth's second-place, on the home-run chart have gone down dramatically. I don't think I would've been alone in screaming bloody murder if Bonds had broken the record, especially considering that you'd have to be blind not to realize that Bonds has been cheating for some time. I think it's safe to say the closest The Babe got to using a performance-enchancing substance was drinking a lotta beer. And one would think that would make his performance go the opposite direction.

Bonds had already walked out on his team before any of this went down anyway, because he was sick of everyone pointing fingers at him and saying, "That motherfucker's using steroids." So he picked up his ball and went home, WAAAAH! Wow, you sure showed me. And to think that I doubted you. *rolls eyes*

That being said, I hope this infection's beaten at some point, because no one deserves that.
