Selig Does About Face On Bonds

On Sunday we told you about MLB Commissioner Bud Selig's statements to reporters that he had no plans to follow Barry Bonds this week as he pursued Henry Aaron's record for most career home runs by a MLB player. In one of the slickest 180 degree turns this side of the Ice Capades Selig showed up on Tuesday at AT&T Park in San Francisco saying he would make every effort to attend each game Bond's plays in until he at least ties the record, outside of his commitments to the Hall of Fame Induction Ceremonies this weekend in Cooperstown. On Sunday, the Commissioner said if he was present he would not participate in any celebration. Tuesday he talked about respecting the tradition of the game the magnitude of the moment, and all citizens of this country are innocent until proven guilty. He also said that he would have another statement once Bonds ties the record, Bonds currently sits at 753 two home runs short of Aaron's mark.

I think Selig should stay away from the next Barry Bonds' games. Being there gives the impression he approves of Bonds' coming Federal investigation into his steroid use. I think that when Bonds beat Aaron's record it should show in the record books that he needed chemical help to do it.
