Barry Bonds sidestepped a peppering of steroids questions in the very way teams avoid pitching to him -- and did it with the same prickly demeanor
that has defined him for years.
Bonds angrily avoided inquiries about his role in baseball's steroid scandal upon his arrival at spring training Tuesday, pronouncing himself weary
but ready to resume his pursuit of Hank Aaron's home run record.
He called reporters liars, and pointed to problems in the world he considers much more important than steroids, such as alcoholism and drug abuse.
Rest of story.......
I saw his comments from the press conference on ESPN.
The one thing I didn't like was how we had to bring up the race issue. When asked about passing Babe Ruth, he said....
"Babe Ruth aint black either. I'm black. Blacks, we go through a little more".
What does race have to do with anything???
