Ahh. There goes my season. :,-(

Stupid offseason trades!

Not to highjack the thread, but how bad is this trade considering Bonds current condition?

This is MLB's dream come true -- the last thing they want as they are trying to clean house is Bloated Bonds passing Babe Ruth on the HR list. Talk about a PR nightmare.

The best thing he could do for the game would be to ride off into the sunset. The injury gives him the perfect opportunity to do so. I hope he takes it.

I just dealt Burrell, Borowski, and Brower for Bonds myself...before I heard the news that he had an infection and another knee injury. The guy accepted the trade this morning after the news before I was able to get on. Ugh. At least I already have four closers...and the Bat is the last guy in my lineup, whom I don't even use when Preston's at home.

COME BACK BARRY!!!

I'm indifferent to Barry as a person. I sort of sympathize with some of him, but then again, he's shown that he's an ass, too.

Not as bad as you'd think...
Hudson in the NL >>> Clement in the AL

Granted Ichiro is much better than nobody, but hey, such is life.
