Delusional Quotation: Big Head Barry

A blurry photo of "Big Head" Barry at bat against the Colorado Rockies on May 26, 2007. He grounded out as part of an 0-for-4 performance.

"This record is not tainted at all. At all. Period," a delusional Bonds said after the game. "You guys can say whatever you want."

Thanks, steroid boy. Thanks for your permission to point out the obvious.

You were on your way to being one of the best baseball players of all time.

Then you saw all of the attention directed at the also-likely-steroid-fueled attention directed toward Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa.

Then you turned to the needle. Or "cream." Or "clear."

That was some flaxseed oil, BALCO Barry.

I've plotted Bonds' annual home run production versus his running average. Clearly, he was getting better as time marched on. Then something changed.

See if you can spot where the "Game of Shadows" began.

It is totally tainted.
I am glad Hank Aaron and Bud Selig both were not in attendance.
