Willam C. Rhoden has done something that, as far as I can tell, no one else has:
The winning side always seems to advocate moving on, is always eager to leave the past behind.
I say not so fast. Baseball can’t move on until it apologizes. Baseball, specifically Bud Selig, owes Bonds an apology.
Sorry, Barry, for hanging you out to dry; for allowing the news media and the public to make you the vilified face of baseball’s steroid era.
Sorry for making it clear during your home run chase that I would rather be in a dentist’s chair having root canal surgery than watching you break the home run record.
Sorry for looking on as you absorbed nasty fan behavior and crude treatment from the news media.
Sorry for not being more forceful in telling fans to reserve judgment, that the steroid canyon was wide and deep.
