Ripken, Gwynn: Bonds Should Be All-Star

San Francisco Chronicle - CA, USA - Cal Ripken Jr. and Tony Gwynn think it's a no-brainer: Barry Bonds deserves to be on the NL All-Star team. "Yes, there's a shadow that's hanging over top of him. The commissioner and Hank Aaron are torn whether they should celebrate the breaking of the all-time home run record," Ripken said Tuesday. "But when I think of Barry, I think of him as an All-Star player."

Bonds began Tuesday with 749 homers, six shy of Aaron's record. After hitting 11 homers in his first 76 at-bats for the San Francisco Giants, he has four in 109 at-bats since.

Still, his .292 batting average leads Giants' regulars, and the 13-time All-Star outfielder tops the major leagues in on-base percentage (.498) and walks (75).

"There has to be one guy from each team, and there's no question, I think, he's having the best year on that team," Gwynn said. "They're playing it in his home park. And I honestly think he deserves to be there."
