Best comment ever

Mish highlighted what has to be the best comment ever posted anywhere (comment number 4):

Son, we live in a world that has walls. And those walls have to be breached by men with bats.

I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Sosa and you curse Bonds. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know: that Bonds', Sosa's and McGwire's usage, while tragic, probably saved the game. And the use of steroids, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saved the game. You don't want the truth. Because deep down, in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me to hit balls far over that wall. You need me to cross that wall.

We use words like honor, code, loyalty…we use these words as the backbone to a life spent playing the game. Hall of Fame voters use 'em as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to writers who write and profit from the entertainment I provide, then question the manner in which I provide it! I'd rather they just said thank you and went on their way.

Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a ball, get on the mound and stand opposed. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you're entitled to!

Top that.
