San Francisco fans gave Barry Bonds a standing ovation... as well the should have

I don't want to be a broken record about why Giants fans should always applaud Barry Bonds, even if he is vilified everywhere else.

I wrote it at the end of the 2006 season when it looked like the man who saved baseball in San Francisco was ending his career with a whimper.

But I'll reiterate the fact that the Giants were good as gone after the 1992 season. They were going to be the Tampa Bay Giants.

And now they have the single greatest ballpark in all of baseball tucked into China Basin.

The Giants went on their most competitive streak since the days of Willie Mays and played to packed houses.

And for those of you wringing your hands about his 'roid use, just relax with the knowledge that they never won a World Series with him. Just teams like the Yankees (with Clemens, Knoblauch and Pettitte), the Angels (with Glaus, the 2002 World Series MVP) and the Marlins (with Pudge Rodriguez) won titles.

Stand and cheer... and while you are at it, sign him up!

You know the Giants have a weak offense when their most feared hitter is sitting in the front row!
