Remember just two years ago when Barry Bonds was chasing the all-time home run record? Who gave him the most grief on the road?
The same Dodger fans who have turned their head to the fact that their guy actually was caught for PEDs. The same Dodger fans who doesn't believe that Bonds could have taken steroids unknowingly doesn't think or doesn't care what Manny Ramirez does, because he's their guy now.
