Barry Bonds indicted
You’ve most likely seen the last of Barry Bonds in the Major leagues. After his indictment yesterday Bonds likely will get any offers to play next year. Regardless of the fact that he is still a free agent.
A lot of people have obviously been quick to bury Bonds because they believed that he was guilty all along. A lot of people have also accused the FBI of being motivated to pursue Bonds based on race. It is definitely something that needs to be considered when you think about that fact that Bonds has been the only MLB player who has been indicted and assuming that he did use steroids, he most definitely is not the only guy who used to them. At this point, in baseball if you DONT use steroids you are selling yourself short.
I normally hate when people play the race card but it just may be appropriate in this situation. You have to take into consideration, the fact that there are guys who are known steroids users and have not been indicted and some are even still playing. Everyone assumed that Mark McGwire used steroids so if thats the case, why isn’t he being investigated. Paul Byrd and Jason Giambi have both been caught and they are still playing.
So do you believe that race played any significant role in this investigation?
