Barry Bonds: Being Treated Unfairly?

John LewisSenior Writer IMarch 19, 2008

Apparently the baseball players' association thinks that Barry Bonds is being treated unfairly. 

Maybe Barry Bonds is getting the Barry Bonds treatment.  He's being passed over and can you blame the owners?  He's injected his way to the top.

While I do believe that Bonds didn't know what he was really taking, but he had to realize something was up when he head and shoe size grew for the first time in 20 years.

But why wouldn't some teams want to take a chance on the home run king?  This guy is still in good shape and able to help on the offensive end.  Plus, wouldn't some owners want to put people in the stands?

Maybe the powers that be have learned a costly lesson and don't want to turn their back on a serious problem again. 

So what's keeping Bonds from being signed?  Could it be the fact that he has been indicted on four counts of perjury and one count of obstruction of justice.

Now baseball union leader Donald Fehr is looking into possible collusion amongst the owners.  My guess is that any evidence of that will be lost and baseball will move as usual.

But he would sure be a big draw as he approaches 800 home runs and 3,000's just a thought.
