I don't think we have a receiver the caliber of Crabtree on the roster CC. He is an elite level talent, just wait and see.

Great, great player. One of my favorites of all time. But, let's get real. Aaron, along with many of his contemporaries, was taking dexadrine tablets or "greenies" as they called them. This was a pharmaceutical form of methamphetamine. So, you've got a massive hard spot for a guy like Bonds, who hit 49 in a season before he ever started watching those big steriodal bruisers across the bay slamming the ball around and decided to give their drug of choice a try, but you're giving Aaron a complete pass. This is the kind of thing that bothers me about Barry Bonds hate.
What bugs me about him and McGuire is how when they had the chance to be men and use the opportunity to man up and admit they f**ked up and maybe use the platform to speak out against cheating and doing illicit drugs, they shriveled like cowards and lied in a lame attempt to salvage their ego and image. I might still respect them if they weren't so weak. Don't even get me started on Palmero...
