If it were anyone other than Barry Bonds, and the fact that he — you know — cheated to get this high, I would be all into the hype, just as I was several decades ago when Hank Aaron shattered Ruth’s record.

But Bonds, you know, cheated.   I think he should get the record — obviously, he can’t not get the record — but I’m kind of glad that there will be an implicit asterisk (rather than the explicit one that Maris got) next to his final home run number.

Other than that, I really couldn’t give a damn.
