The hate for Alex Rodriguez is real.

The New York Yankees slugger is five home runs shy of tying Willie Mays, and that is when Barry Bonds plans to celebrate with him. However, Bonds wonders why A-Rod receives so much hate, something Bonds himself must be accustomed to.

"Anytime anybody in the game does something that's a great accomplishment, the game of baseball should celebrate that," Bonds told USA Today Sports. "No matter what. Baseball is benefiting from that person's hard work, so baseball should at least celebrate.

"Why the hate? Why hate on something you're paying to see? I don't understand it. He's entertaining us. I wish life wasn't like that."

I think as the season goes on, more and more people will start to appreciate A-Rod. Yankees fan have begun to.

It's a start.
