He's the greatest player of this generation.
But he's also, at least in public perception, one of the bigger jerks around.
Should the media deny him mvp votes because he doesn't get along with them? Absolutely not. Should fans throw syringes (as in San Diego)? Of course not.
Are there some idiotic questions asked sometimes? No question.
But Mr. Bonds, it's all part of the deal of being a big-league ballplayer and enjoying the money and fame you have.
And as broadcaster Jon Miller so delicately tried to put it...he's brought most of this...on himself.
People who send death threats are morons. But Bonds acted in this show like he's the first ballplayer to ever get em. Reference, oh - Hank Aaron, Roger Maris, Jackie Robinson among others for historical perspective.
Yeah, I admit - I'm watching...I want to see if the Imagineers can pull off the ultimate in this, yet another so-called...reality show...make Barry Bonds, likeable.
A new low for Disney in my book.
