Leaving his politics aside, George Will wrote a really great article on PED's and Bonds.  Nothing really new here, but for once, there's a mainstream voice that speaks with some degree of familiarity and credibility on this whole mess.  Will is one of the great baseball fans in this country, and I think his opinion does carry some weight with it.

Personally, I think there's sufficient circumstantial evidence for a non-analytical positive on Bonds and an asterisk on his records.  That having been said, unless something new comes to light, or MLB changes its position on him/the Mitchell investigation produces something of merit, I do think Bud Selig should be in attendance for the home run record being set.

Incidentally, would any of you happen to know if World Baseball Classic testing - which was more of a WADA-style gig, is being implemented in the near future by MLB?  Or if it is in place already at the minor league level - which can have its testing policy thrust upon it without the union?  Also : Major U.S. sporting leagues may be joining up in the fight against PED's... http://www.france24.com/france24Public/en/administration/afp-news.html?id=070515182138.xdok1g0p& cat=null (forgive the link, it was the best I could do)...

And here's the George Will article (and a great read) : http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/18629617/site/newsweek/
