Following Wednesday’s announcement that Barry Bonds (and everybody else) was not elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame, Giants president Larry Baer was accepting yet disappointed about the decision.
Here’s what he told the Chronicle’s Henry Schulman:
“This was the decision. It’s difficult. There have been complications in determining Hall of Famers throughout history, and it was more intense this year for sure. I think over time we would hope he’d be considered to be another Giant in the Hall of Fame. We also understand the voters need to sort some things out. That’s what I feel.”
This statement could very well become boilerplate for years to come.
