Last night, Selig sent former Orioles great Frank Robinson, now a special assistant to the commissioner, in his place to Dodger Stadium. Robinson, who has remained reserved about Bonds, was spared the duty of congratulating the San Francisco Giant for matching or breaking the record of Aaron, a contemporary of Robinson's. For a long time, Robinson was fourth on the the all-time homer list (586) before being passed by Bonds, Sammy Sosa and Ken Griffey Jr. Robinson has been vocal over the steroids issue at times. For instance, he said Rafael Palmeiro (No. 10 with 560 homers) should be stripped of his stats after Palmeiro was suspended in 2005 for testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance.
