Last year, Pete Rose endorsed Mark McGwire for the Hall of Fame.

But in an interview today in the Dominican Republic, Barry Bonds endorsed BOTH McGwire and Rose for the Hall of Fame.

"I congratulate Cal Ripken Jr. and Tony Gwynn for their induction to the Hall of Fame because they were great ballplayers," Bonds said Wednesday in the Dominican Republic. "But I also think McGwire and Pete Rose should be in Cooperstown."

It's sort of like saying "I think Abraham Lincoln and George Washingtons were great presidents deserving of their place in history, but Franklin Pierce and Warren Harding were meritorious as well."

Choose your own poorly formed comparison!

"St. Paul and St. James were great purveyors of the Christian message," Ted Haggard said Wednesday from an undisclosed, secluded Rocky Mountain location. "But I also think that Jimmy Swaggart and Jim Bakker are deserving of great recognition as well."

St. James the Greater or St. James the Lesser?

"Sandy Koufax and Don Drysdale were great Dodger pitchers, but who could forget Kevin Brown and Chan Ho Park?"

Re McGwire, Barry's just laying the groundwork for his own admission. If Mac gets in notwithstanding the steroid controversy, Barry becomes a lock.

I applaud the exclusion of Dante Bichette and Bobby Witt from the hall of fame, but I also believe Bert Blyleven and Dwight Evans are undeserving.
