NEW YORK (USA Today) — This can’t be happening again, but it is. We should celebrate this historic feat, but many of us won’t.
Barry Bonds, baseball’s home-run king, cannot believe the contempt. The anger. The hostility. All of this pettiness toward one man.
Bonds is not speaking about himself. He is talking about New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez.
Rodriguez is five home runs shy of tying immortal Willie Mays for fourth place on baseball’s all-time home run list with 660, and the New York Yankees have no plans to celebrate it.
