OK, this is a little late, but who gives.
So this guy bought the 756 ball at an auction, ok, no harm.
Sets up a website to figure out what to do with the ball, again, i dont care.
What pisses me off is that the option that won was to brand the ball with an "*" then send it to Cooperstown.
I hope that the Baseball HOF has big enough cajones to keep that ball off of its display.
Ecko, Whether you, the American public, or anyone else likes it or not, this ball is a rightful part of baseball history, legitimate or not. Even if Bonds took steroids, it's still a record. Give the ball to Bonds. Put the ball in a separate, "Steroid Era" place. Blast it into space for all I care. Just don't deface the ball based on "admitted" specualtion.
Thank you Gilbert Arenas. At least you have some sense of what's right in this world. You offered to buy the ball and put it in your "HOF". This is a guy doing something right for someone who has been bashed and battered by all aspects of the media.
I'm not saying he didn't take steroids, I don't want to take a stand on that. What really is annoying about this is how we think we can be the judges of whether gus are inocent or guilty based on a BIASED media. We don't know the truth. Same things happened with the Mike Vick case. We tend to believe what we hear in the newspapers, what people on this site say, and what we hear on ESPN. Sometimes, these guys are right, but when it comes to judging people, did you take the bar exam and then work your way to becoming a judge? I can't speak for everybody, (maybe one of you is a judge) but I would guess not.
My hope is that Mr. Ecko (wait, didn't he die on LOST?) comes to his senses and figures out the American public, for the most part, are biased against Barry Bonds, exception being San Francisco, and takes the ball and gives it to Bonds or the HOF.
