So do the Giants get insurance payouts off of Bonds' injury or not? What insurance company in their right mind insured someone like Bonds?

Can you imagine the pair of stones it would take to make a claim on some type of medical insurance? I'm sure that claim would be paid promptly. LOL

No. But he has never been proven guilty as all his apologists on this board frequently point out. I seriously would like to know whether the Giants have insurance on Bonds' salary and if so whether they have filed a claim. 20 M is a lot of dough to not insure against injury.

an insurance comany will be much more aggressive than the government in pursuing something like this since they have much more at stake.

Now the GIansts are denying the report:

Barry Bonds was actually taken off an I.V. today, the Giants revealed. As scheduled, he switched to oral antibiotics to continue to fight the infection in his knee.
Bonds is not immobilized ''by any stretch of the imagination,'' his spokeswoman, Rachael Vizcarra, said tonight. ESPN's report was out of date if there was much truth to it in the first place, but at least it forced the Giants to comment on Bonds' condition.

Of course no one is going to believe anythig they say at this point.

me too ;-D i realize im putting a large target on my back, but to wish serious illlness on a guy that has done nothing except be the most dominant hitter of this century (yes... with steroids, but hes not the only one) as well as one of the best overall players of the late 80's and the 90's (pre steroids)- during that time he won 3 MVP, stole bases at a large rate (only member of the 500-500 club EVER), and won something like 8 or 9 gold gloves. also, if what these reports are saying are true, the extent of his illness is no longer baseball related. at this point he's infected with a serious staph infection, which is not a baseball injury, and something that should never be wished on any1 who has done nothing to you.

or you either ... How Ironic .. :-b :-b :-b



but get this .. ESPN is passing bad info, but the sheep could care less. They just line up to bash, even after it was reported on page one of this thread that the info was bogus. They don't care. Just so they can hate. and god forbid anybody gets in the way of them hating too.

I love it ..

Hate

Hate

Hate ...

Its takes a special kind of self loathe, to hate as much these Barry Bonds haters hate.

and everytime I see it, I pull for the guy even more.
I hope Barry comes back and smashes the record. just to shove it up each and every one of his detracors respective *******

Get well soon Barry. ;-D
