Tired of the anti-Bonds schtick?

Well, obviously SI's John Donovan is not. Here's the latest installment of his insanity.

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2007/writers/john_donovan/07/01/all.star.bonds.griffey/index.html

Although his entire piece is difficult to stomach, this part in particular raised my hackles. He tries to prove his case that Bonds doesn't belong by arguing that Griffey is way more deserving:

"[Griffey is] second in home runs among NL outfielders (with 21, just behind teammate Adam Dunn and just ahead of Bonds) and third in OPS (behind Bonds...)"

It would be one thing if Bonds wasn't deserving, but he's among the leaders in a number of major categories -- HR, OBP, OPS. (His BA is not too shabby either.)

At what point do I just tune out Donovan's anti-Bonds rants?
