First off, I didn't paint this to be pretty.
And this isn't only about Barry Bonds...
I just couldn't help thinking about this as he smacked a couple homers against the Cubs yesterday.
There's a boil on baseball, and it's been growing and festering since the first time the "s" word was mentioned in a baseball story.
I try not to think about it, but it is soooo there.
I'm not sure what the end is going to be.
Congressional hearing, players or witnesses being dragged up on the stand...whatever it is, hopefully it's a little truth maybe.
And the day that happens this boil will be lanced.
That's going to be one ugly day.
But then maybe we can all just get back to baseball.
Which I think I'll do right now.
I turned on the radio in my office just as Barry hit his first dinger.
Within a couple minutes, Daryl Ward and Cliff Floyd had hurt themselves.
Then, the other Barry dinger and we're down to a one run lead.
But Bobby Howry, what a stud all over again.
Shutting them down in the 9th.
Cubs take 3 of 4 from the Giants, winning 9-8.
Still three and one half games out of first.
