There are guys that go out and quietly do there business, the first one to the park and last to leave, and there are others that expect things to be given to them because they are great. Bonds is the later, and I think that is something the Rays are trying to steer clear of
No offense, but with what I've seen out of Elijah Dukes, Josh Hamilton, and Delmon Young, I don't think the Rays are doing a great job of keeping their player corrupt-free as is. So even if Bonds did bring some sort of negative attitude towards the Rays, I don't think it'd make much of a difference, at least not enough to offset the positives he'd bring by perhaps showing that franchise what it's like to compete.
If he goes to Tampa I'm going to end up very happy with my $1 2008 investment in him, and it'll be a ton of fun to watch the Rays, especially if Bonds can beat up the Sox and Yanks.
