As I write this column, the jury in the Barry Bonds perjury trial is deliberating the testimonies that were given to determine if he is innocent or guilty of lying before a Grand Jury.
Whatever the verdict in this case, I think it is clear that the general public has already convicted him of taking banned substances and cheating on the great game of baseball. There is no question in my mind that he did this and as I have stated quite vehemently in this column before, I think he and all those like him who are suspected, whether they have admitted taking these substances or not, should have their “records” and statistics removed from the books. I realize that this is a harsh reaction but it is the only way to cleanse the game of these cheaters. Treat them like they never existed.
