I've had a similar transformation, although I think my disdain for Bonds had almost nothing to do with steroids and everything to do with him not liking Pittsburgh and failing to carry the Pirates to a World Series while he was there.


As an adult though, I've come to love Bonds again and have found a way to explain away almost all of his flaws. Beyond being the best player in the history of the game, he's such an interesting cat. The Sports on Earth profile by Gwen Knapp this winter was really fascinating.


Given that I cycle the same Northern California roads that he does, I hope I run into him some afternoon and can thank him for the memories.

@StyvesKlein @Mornacale  Well, by that definition you could say Miguel Cabrera is a one-dimensional player. Which seems reductive.
