Seriously, this will be embarassing if he is not starting in the All-Star game played at his home ballpark. Besides, he is having a good year at the plate (3rd in MLB in OPS, 1st among all MLB OFs). If those opinions don't sway you, then consider this: if he is not starting we will be treated to the usual anti-Bonds, moralizing media bullshit (look his hometown fans don't even like him, he is a cheater!!!!!1)
