Well, looks like Barry Bonds is at it again (ESPN.com). This time, instead of being mad in a tempermental sense, he's just flat out lost his mind.
Amidst Barry's pearls of wisdom:
*"You're talking about something that wasn't even illegal at the time." Could've fooled me.
*"It's not like this is the Olympics." You're right, baseball is something people care about year to year. And, last I checked, it was an athletic competition too.
*"You want to define cheating in America? When they make a shirt in Korea for a $1.50 and sell it here for 500 bucks?" You can argue the moral right and wrong of it, sure, but since it's not against the law it's not cheating at all. It's also not at all the same as, or relevant, to steroid use in baseball.
And of course it goes on like this. Is it just me, or does this remind anyone else of the early stages of Mike Tyson's dementia?

I almost lost a Mountain Dew on that line! The pressure may be getting to Barry. He can keep trying to tell the reporters to put it behind them, but that's all they are going to write about all season. Just wait until the BALCO trial starts.

It also sounds like Steinbrenner is getting more involved in the direct operation of the team. Sounds like the bad years of the 80s for me! Incidentally, I wonder if the Yankees will ever straighten out their bullpen before Rivera anymore.
