Just Out of Curiosity
Wednesday, January 02, 2008
Despite his long and successful (if a tad... controversial) tenure in San Fran, the Giants made it clear last season that once his contract was up at the end of the year, ol' Balco Barry was not going to be welcome in the city returning to the team in 2008. With the ever-increasing scrutiny Barry invites upon himself via his sassy attitude and apparent complete lack of media savvy-ness (a little kissing up to the press can go a long way, B-dawg), the considerable legal trouble he's in (perjury who?), and the fact that aside from some loyal and perhaps delusional folks up in the bay area pretty much no one likes him, there haven't exactly been suitors lining up to offer Bondsy a spot on their team. He hasn't retired, though, so clearly he's holding onto some sweet dreams of slugging a few asterisk-y homers for some team this year. Like I said, the offers have not been rolling in - in fact, as far as I can see, NO offers have rolled in - so Balco B's days in cleats might be over whether he likes it or not. However, the fact remains that he IS on the market and some team COULD pick him up, and that includes the Yankees.

Before you get all fired up and start yelling at me about how the Yankees already have plenty of DH's and their roster is full and no one wants him anyway, cool your jets pronto and realize that I am simply posing a question for curiosity's sake:

How low would Barry Bonds' price have to be to justify bringing him onto the team? For instance, let's say he was willing to sign a $1 million, one year deal... Would you accept him on the team and enjoy his 20 or so home runs? Or would you be too disgusted by him to want him even at that price? What if the Yanks had some free roster space? Would that affect your opinion? What dost thou think?

Of course, it's mighty hard to play in the MLB from jail.

    If he were available for a million (and not in jail), there was a roster spot open, and a desperate need for an outfielder, I think I'd take him.

    He be a perfect fit in NY and I'm sure he'll feel very comfortable on a steriod using team!

    All the money in the world and all the steriods used in NY...and they still can't win in this century!

    I got a perfect answer for you Yankees Chick. No, no matter what the cost of Bonds is, he will not be in pinstripes. Look at Mark Prior, he signed with the Pads for 1 year, 1 mil, you telling me the Yankees couldn't have matched that? and that was for a starting pitcher. Bonds is...Bonds, not only will the Yankees have to shift around atleast 2 players (Giambi Damon and/or Matsui), but it would bringing more contraversy and more self ritousness to the club house, which is exactly what we DON'T need.

    IF we have an extra roster spot and a cool million, can we please have Bernie back? F-Bonds. Oh by the way did you hear the controversy about which hat Barry will wear if he makes the hall? No not the Giants or Pirates but 7 1/4or 8 3/4? I dread the big head in pinstripes.

    The very reason I wouldn't want Bonds in a NY uniform is the same one that I've disliked him for since he was a scrawny runt in Pittsburgh - he's a cocky jackass that doesn't care about anyone but himself. I probably wouldn't have minded him breaking the HR records as much as I did if he had been a bit more personable throughout his career. If someone like Griffey Jr. had laid claim to those titles, I would have rooted him on in his chases easily, even though he wasn't a Yankee.

    Oh, and alphabit2 - the hat size conundrum...lmao
