The End of Barry Bonds

Major news broke today that a new book is coming out which will enumerate the various drug usage by Barry Bonds, right down to names, dates, and details. It appears as though they have him completely nailed, which I'm sure Selig is thrilled about right in the middle of the World Baseball Classic.

Perhaps my favorite part of the story: ESPN, which which not only fashions itself the "worldwide leader in sports" but is in business with Bonds on an upcoming reality show, was scooped on this relatively major story by both Sports Illustrated and the San Francisco Chronicle. The Chronicle has owned the steroids story pretty much all along, as has Tom Verducci, and the two have collaborated on an excerpt to be published in this week's SI.

I disagree with you and agree with Miami Herald columnist Dan Le Batard that The latest ''news'' on Bonds isn't shocking, revelatory or even terribly interesting.

He needs to go. But he won't slink off into the sunset, so our only hope is Commissar Bud putting the ky-bosh on him. But THAT would take cajones, and Bud is challenged in that aspect.
