Barry Bonds Deserves HOF
… Despite PED Scandal

Eckstein managed to have a great career despite playing in the thick of the steroid era — he was never implicated or tested positive for anything … as clean as they come.
Doesn’t seem like he’s THAT opposed to it.
“That will start with Bonds … because Bonds was a Hall of Famer before this stuff. So, I think he’ll be the first one,” Eckstein says.
“I think at some point in time, when the older writers [who vote for the HOF] get out and the younger writers get in, I think at some point in time, you might see these guys get in.”
Still … David isn’t holding a grudge (dude did beat Barry for one of his World Series rings) — and says, ultimately, Bonds deserves a bronze bust one day.
“Bonds was a Hall of Famer prior [to PEDs],” David says. “We’ll see. I mean, who knows? You just wish no one ever did it.”
