The holdup is the Player's Union. They aren't going to give up the DH without getting something back.

Cmon Ironman..to call one the the greatest baseball players in history a fat guy is an insult. He's a 5 time NAtional League MVP and a 9 time Gold Glove winner. Has broken many of the all-time records. Granted he needs a personality adjustment...but you gotta respect the player.

I think any intentional walk rule would be unenforcable as was said. Its sad that it happens so much but dealing with the Bonds situation would also change the intentional walk strategy to set up for the double play or pitch to the guy who is a better matchup. i like that element of baseball strategy (and when it blows up in the team's face too) and it would be a shame to lose it.

I am not a Bonds fan but am amazed there's not more fan outcry about the intentional walks. Remember a couple of years ago Schilling had a perfect game going and Ben Davis bunted to get on and he was vilified. I thought it seemed pretty reasonable. His job is to get on base. Bonds probably walked 1,000 times that year and he still hit the record for HR. What's the difference? Our ability to concentrate is too short?
