Barry Bonds ranks a close second all time behind Babe Ruth in position player WAR, but of course that’s before adding Ruth’s value as a pitcher. Bonds’ record 762 home runs, seven MVP awards, eight Gold Gloves, all-time walk record, and many more accolades should have allowed him to coast into the Hall of Fame. Instead, he’ll be facing scrutiny for performance-enhancing drugs for years to come.
