As a baseball fan, how do you keep Bonds out? When it comes him specifically, I don't care about steroids, he's a HOFer without them.

Even in the steroid era, this guy hit like .350 seeing about 1/4 of the pitches other players saw. He would get walked 3-4 times a game, and still get a hit in his only AB. He'd have 1 pitch to hit all game and he'd hit it. I've also never seen anyone else get intentionally walked with the bases loaded.

Because it's a popularity contest and people don't like him.  Sportswriters are amongst the lowest form of life there is.

 common sense has to start being used, baseball did not test for steroids until 2005, meaning they didn't enforce the rules , it is now known at least 85% of the league used HGH or some form of steroids, and the cats who didn't either didn't care or were lazy and happy enough being in the league.  so the playing field was level since pitchers and hitters both took it.. Bonds was the best of the steroids era, Clemons was the best pitcher of that era and we go from there..

I will go further - Barry Bonds may very well be the best hitter any of us have ever seen in our lifetimes.  A guy on the radio yesterday said he was the closest thing to Babe Ruth that anybody will ever see.  And when you look at how many balls he hit out of the park into the water in SF, and you then add up every HR that went into the same water by everybody else that's ever swung the bat in that park, he outnumbers them by double digits.

Hard to disagree with that.

It took Joe DiMaggio three tries to get in. Think about that for a minute. I hate Jeter too. I think he's similar to Michael Jordon. Incredible player who can change the outcome of the game at the drop of a hat. But a shitty teammate who's only out for himself.
