Bonds was tested 2-3 times this year while on the DL. If he failed a test then it would have been anncounced during that time. Bonds is clean by MLB standards. The Steroid tests have proven that he didn't take anything.

I seriously doubt it. Think about it, Palmeiro, Morse, and even Franklin weren't announced until MONTHS had gone by. Plus, MLB wouldn't suspend him while he was on the DL anyway. I would not be surprised at all if the only reason he's coming back this year is to serve his suspension now so it doesn't carry over into next year. I still have serious doubts that he'll play a single game this year, and if he does, I hope he goes the way of Juan Gone - one AB and done. I wouldn't mind if he never came back, either.

Bonds has said he doesn't want to return unless it is in left field, so I would presume he will be starting Monday.

Your last two sentences explain the previous four. I completely disagree and think he will be back in the lineup on Monday.

Sounds like a lot of hate man.

I hope he has a monster week, say 10-20, with 3 hrs. Probably won't, but i'm starting him at DH.
