Barry Bonds is the all-time home run king in Major League Baseball. Fact*. Barry Bonds was indicted for not telling the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Fact. Barry Bonds believes he should be inducted into the Hall of Fame. Fact.


In an interview with MLB.com, Bonds was asked whether he thinks he belongs in the Hall or not. Bonds replied, "Oh, without a doubt. There's not a doubt in my mind."

Bonds's HoF bust -errr, mugshotWell, I'm glad Bonds feels so confident. I'm also glad the BBWA are the gatekeepers for the Hall. Maybe Bonds didn't realize that Mark McGwire didn't get in on his first chance. No matter Bonds career numbers, I'd put a large sum on Bonds not getting enough votes his first time on the ballot. Baseball is a game of tradition, and no one respects those traditions more than the writers themselves. 

Bonds might see himself as a deity in San Francisco, but the rest of the nation doesn't seem him that way. I have no doubt that Bonds will one day have his day at Cooperstown, but it won't be any time soon.
