19. Hell, I actually think Bonds is great
Both his dad (Bobby) and Barry. He used roids, so did eveyone else after the 94 strike. Roids can make you big, but they can't make you accurate like he was...

20. The thing about Barry is
he didn't need to take roids honestly but if the Griffey-Bonds story is true, he wanted to beloved like Sosa and McGuire were.

21. True
And he was always good to the fans. Not so to the media or other players, but he did like the fans...

22. Its kind of a shame because his rep will be tarnished
but so will mostly everyone else from this era. There was something on Gary Sheffield in ESPN.com a while ago.

10. Yanks, Sox and Orioles have to watch out for Toronto this year.
Edited on Thu Mar-23-06 05:27 PM by maveric
They signed some big guns, Troy Glaus for one, and a decent closer.
My predicion for the AL east:
1.Toronto
2.Red Sox
3.Yanks
4.Orioles (sorry Kleeb)
5.Tampa Bay

17. Better
for me to hate.

I don't even care about baseball but enjoy it when they spend a bazillion dollars and still can't win.

24. Can't argue there
I hate the redskins mainly because I don't think our nations capitol's team should have a blatantly racist name so yes I enjoy seeing them lose.

Don't have much of a problem with the Cleveland Indians or even the Atlanta Braves but redskins? How can that be defended.
