Hank Aaron is a coward. He's taking a stance but not saying what it is.
There's no other way to look at it. Aaron, the home run king, is playing a neutral role in the biggest sports debate since whether hits king Pete Rose deserved to be in the Hall of Fame.
It's clear Barry Bonds will supplant Aaron as the king of the long ball. Bonds is 18 home runs away from No. 756, one better than Aaron.
Still, Aaron says he will notbe there when he drops to No. 2.
Why? Who knows. Or more like, we allknow.
It comes down to accusations Bonds used steroids, even though the slugger hasn't been found guilty.
What's Aaron's problem?
Well, he needs to take a stand -- either denounce Bonds' attempt because he's been implicated in the steroids scandal, or embrace Bonds' accomplishment and show up.
Playing middle of the road isn't fair -- to baseball, its fans or Bonds.
Instead, Aaron has chosen the easy way out -- saying nothing.

I think Hank Aaron's shown nothing but class by avoiding this Bonds media machine.
Parker is a shit thrower, throw it all against the wall and see what sticks.
This isn't the first crap column he's written, and sadly (for us) it won't be the last.
