David Justice

Barry Bonds Belongs In Hall of Fame

... Even If He Juiced!

Barry Bonds is getting screwed -- and DESERVES his own plaque in the Baseball Hall of Fame ... so says former MLB superstar David Justice

Here's the gist of David's argument: 

-- Yeah, Barry was probably juiced up from '97 to '07 ... and that's bad. 
-- But BB was a BEAST from '86 to '97 ... BEFORE his head expanded 8 hat sizes. 

Long story short ... if Barry's career was ended by injury in '97, he'd still be a first-ballot Hall-of-Famer ... and that's enough for Mr. Justice. 

"I think they should put Barry in ... period."

Of course, Bonds has been eligible for a spot in Cooperstown for the past 2 years ... but didn't get the votes he needed.

Barry Balco Bonds should have done it without cheating. He contributed to an entire decade of baseball with an asterisk on the record books. No HoF for him.
