Questioning Bonds

Postby dorje3 » Thu Sep 15, 2005 9:38 pm

Does he really have his own separate locker room? Anyone care to explain or describe this situation?
Does Bonds care more about the number of games the Giants are back from the WC or does he more for the number of HRs he trails Babe by?
I am not trying to bash the slugger just want some differing opinions...

If I were the team or the SF fans, I wouldn't care what his motivation was, as long as he produced like Barry on the field.

I've been in the locker room and Bonds has two lockers and a lazy boy chair with TV. Bonds would rather win a World Series Ring than brake Aarons record.


Abou tthe locker room, most fans will say "That prick doesn't need two lockers. Hes so self centered!" Well, if Ruth was doing what he did back in the 1920's in todays baseball world, He'd have two lockers, a lazy boy chair and a TV. The best get the best.

Im sure he cares a lot for how well the Giants perform and he'll show that feeling more to the media. But Im sure, based on his personality and how he acts on most off field situations, he cares a lot more about his HR totals.

Yeah, I've been in there too, he basically has a corner of the locker room to himself. Two lockers, and another one for his son (I think..), a lazy boy, and a TV that he is supposedly anal about.

I happen to disagree with you on that one. The one thing that Bonds wants more than anything else at this point in his career is a world series ring. He has said it multiple times and I believe him. The guy may be an a$$ but even a$$es want to win, and the one accomplishment that he has left is getting that ring.

Actually, that's a completely appropriate answer to "Anyone care to explain or describe this situation?"

I think we'd all have been quite happy seeing Bonds wearing our favorite team's uniform over the past fifteen years.

Anything else about what kind of person he is is useless chit chat by people who know nothing about him.
