There's no crying in baseball!

Barry Bonds seems to have forgotten that one, based on his virtuoso performance of the world's smallest violin today for the cameras, dramatically appearing on crutches, son by his side, to say he might miss the season. In fact, go watch the video (which is linked on the ESPN page), it's really quite something.

In the wake of last week's events with Mark McGwire, perhaps Barry realizes the steroids inquiries aren't going away and it might be better for him to fade into the sunset without getting the home run record. He would be correct about that.

I also wish he would stop appallingly playing the victim in everything he does. Bonds has made millions off baseball, and he can easily come clean on steroids any time he wants and end the media circus he considers so harmful. You did it to yourself, Barry.
