Plus, Bruce Jenner had a big night last week as he came out publicly as trans in an ABC interview with Diane Sawyer. What did America learn about trans issues, and will his revelation have an impact on America's treatment of trans people?
Barry Bonds, Jeff Kent kept out of Hall of Fame again
OK, here’s the main thing about numbers in baseball: They all require context. No one could reasonably argue that, say, Mariners first baseman Corey Hart is a more dominant offensive player than Hall of Famer Frank “Home Run” Baker simply because Hart has more career home runs and a higher OPS. We know Baker played in the sport’s deadball era, so we adjust our standards accordingly.
And Bonds stands as one of the sport’s greatest hitters ever in any context. By the park- and league-adjusted stat OPS+, Bonds ranks third all-time behind only Babe Ruth and Ted Williams. It’s perfectly fair to debate whether Bonds’ 763 home runs are more impressive than Hank Aaron’s 755, since Bonds played at a time when lots of guys hit lots of homers. But it’s silly to dismiss all those homers entirely. They all contributed to his teams’ chances of victory.
3. It would be unfair to clean players
This one’s tricky. One of the great shames of baseball’s so-called steroids era is that there were certainly guys who held themselves to higher standards than the league did and refused to take PEDs, and many of those players likely missed out on roster spots or big paydays or places in the record books because they were unwilling to compromise. And that stinks, no doubt.
Problem is, we have no sure way of knowing who they were. This aims by no means to besmirch the reputations of players like Glavine, Maddux and Thomas. But we can never say for sure that no member of the 2014 Hall of Fame class ever juiced. We know only that they successfully convinced us they played clean. And now that the Hall’s doors are open to players from their era, it will become increasingly tricky and disturbing if we keep trying to guess which guys did what without concrete evidence.
4. How will I explain it to my kid?

DO COLLEGE ATHLETES DESERVE TO GET PAID???
It's one of the biggest debates in sports: should college athletes be paid? Everyone from sports fans and media personalities to the players and general public seem to have an opinion. And regardless where you stand on the issue, like it or not, college athletes might soon start to get paid. A federal judge just ruled that the NCAA can't stop players from selling the rights to their names, images and likeness, striking down NCAA regulations that prohibit them from getting anything other than scholarships and the cost of attendance at schools. This ruling could potentially allow players at big schools to have money generated by television contracts put into a trust fund to pay them when they leave school.
Paying college athletes now is the right thing to do because it will give those who fail to be recruited by the pros a chance to buy some time, and hopefully figure out how they are going to get by with the rest of their lives and give them a little savings in the bank to work with. Also, they deserve to be paid because they are the very reason college sports fans turn on the TV and attend the games. They are what generates revenues all around. Without these kids, college sports wouldn't be college sports, and it's time to compensate them for their talents and abilities that make college sports so great.
