Bud, you’re the commissioner of baseball. You are not a judge, a jury or a detective. Bonds is currently innocent, and even though there is a mountain of evidence against him, right now, he’s innocent. That means the game of which you’re in charge of is about to experience one of its top 5 finest moments in the last 100 years.
As commissioner, you can make a big deal of this. You can celebrate it, and when you do, everyone else will celebrate it. Regardless of how you feel about Mr. Bonds, baseball needs something to celebrate. And instead of being a keystone cop about the whole thing, and suddenly deciding to stand on some kind of principles, you should just be a proud pappa busting your buttons over the game.
It’s sad that Bonds has done what he’s done to get to this point, but it’s sadder that the fans don’t have a leader to follow on how to properly respond to it.
