Desai: The MLB’s system rewards cheaters

When I was a kid, my favorite baseball player was Barry Bonds. My fandom was mostly due to the fact that he was the best player on the planet and he played for my favorite team. I even attended the game during which he passed Babe Ruth by hitting his 715th home run. Bonds eventually went on to hit 47 more, passing Hank Aaron’s record and finishing his career with 762 home runs.
