Glad I didnt listen to you, I hope he tears it up the last 3 weeks.
Barry Bonds will start in left field and bat cleanup when he makes his long-awaited return to the lineup Monday night as they open a three-game series against the NL West-leading Padres at SBC Park. Bonds took BP and shagged fly balls in the outfield Sunday. "Right now, I'm just trying to keep my mind clear, that's it," Bonds said while quietly gripping his bats in his black recliner in the corner of the clubhouse.
Wow. So much for pinch hitting. Get Bonds back in your Fantasy lineup for Week 24 (Sept. 12-18) in just about every Fantasy league. Don't expect him to be completely himself, but he won't be a scrub either. The slugger, coming back from three operations on his right knee since Jan. 31, has been eager for months to resume his quest of Hank Aaron's home run record. He received medical clearance to play Saturday from Dr. Lewis Yocum, the Angels' team orthopedist who worked with Bonds for more than two months in Los Angeles until the slugger rejoined his teammates last week at Dodger Stadium. He has 703 homers, trailing only Babe Ruth (714) and Aaron (755) on the career list. "He will hit a home run," said 6-year-old Darren Baker, son of Cubs manager Dusty Baker. "That will be 704."
Life is like riding an elevator. It has a lot of ups and downs and someone is always pushing your buttons.
