Almost everybody in the media despises him. He gets booed around the world. But, even at gimpy forty-two years of age, Mr. Bonds continues to deliver. Whatever else you want to say about his chasing the home-run record, I guarantee you that opposing pitchers weren't fearing Hank Aaron much when he reached 743 on the career list. I doubt if he had as many intentional walks that whole season in Milwaukee as Barry has had in April.
