Bochy did not walk Bonds with the bases loaded, that was Showalter .. Bochy always pitched to Bonds, it was his disgusting 'forte'
anyways, there has been lots of stories bantered about in the last couple of weeks about Sandy Alderson simply letting Bochy walk to a division rival. Sandy kept saying he wanted to make sure "Bochy was happy" and wanted to "Be Here" (never mind he was in the organization for two plus decades). The bottom line is Sandy Alderson would not offer a contract extension to him and all the public statements Sandy was making, leaned towards "Bruce was not welcome here" anymore.
Sandy kept denying this though ..
But the fact that Bruce Bochy just won back to back pennants, and walked out of his contract to a division rival, and Sandy never even asked for compensation
.. is telling ..
Sandy truly wanted his
guy .. Two division titles be damned ..
Yep, the Santa Ana's are kicking up ..
And I kind of like it ..
