What's Wrong With Barry Bonds?

Nothing.

That is all.

The man is 42 years old and entered tonight's game with a 1.099 OPS. In May--while ESPN has treated him like he was on the coldest streak in baseball history--his on-base percentage is .457.

You want him to break the home run record so you can sell advertising? Fine, but stop filling your shows every night with pointless attempts to explain why even very good hitters go through periods where they aren't superhuman. It's insulting to the intelligence of the viewers.
