Slog Loves Voting

posted by on September 18 at 11:01 AM

So, go to this site and vote on what the guy who paid $752,467.00 for Barry Bonds’ 756th home run should do with it: donate it to the Hall of Fame as is, donate it to the Hall with an asterisk branded into it, or shoot it into space on a rocket.

I voted to brand it and send it to the Hall of Fame. They should set up a nice display case in the bathroom.

I vote we elect this chump the biggest moron ever. Who the fuck pays three quarters of a million dollars for a baseball that has been smacked by a steroid pumped loser?

And if he DID pay $750K for the stupid thing, why the fuck would he DONATE it to the Hall of Fame?

Clearly, I will never understand baseball.

Where can I vote for "shove it up his ass"?

Voted yesterday. I hope it ends up in the hall of fame with a big ol' brand right on the front.

What he needs to do is give it back to O.J.!!!

Kill himself for wasting that amount of fucking money on something so stupid and astronomically pointless as a used baseball.

Hell, he could buy half a house out here for that much money.

I'm not so sure about the whole asterisk thing anymore. Some columnist I read pointed out a couple of valid points on the subject:

1) Performance-enhancing drugs have been around a long time, longer than steroids, and players have not been shy about using them. In the sacred halcyon days of yore to which we keep pointing, the favorite drug was amphetamines.

2) Steroid-using hitters have been facing larger, stronger, faster steroid-using pitchers. So, it's not like hitters have the clear advantage.

He concluded by saying that what matters is what happens on the field during the game, and otherwise we'd need too many different asterisks for too many things.
