Big Daddy Weave, A Baptist Minister & Barry Bonds

BDW, Rev. Ang, & Barry Lamar Bonds @ Fisherman's Wharf

Barry Bonds is a man accused by many, proven guilty by no one. Arrested by no one. Suspended by no one.

In baseball's Hall of Fame, meanwhile, you have:

A confessed cheater (Gaylord Perry), a convicted drug smuggler (Orlando Cepeda), a player suspended for drug possession (Ferguson Jenkins) and an accused game-fixer (Tris Speaker).

Not to mention a known bigot or two (Cap Anson, Ty Cobb), a known lush or three (Grover Alexander, Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle), a known philanderer (Wade Boggs) and a man who struck an opponent with a bat (Juan Marichal).

Saints are for heaven. Cooperstown is for stars.
