Anyone have any thoughts as to whether we will see Bonds again this year?

If I had to guess, I'd say no. Considering the offer Boras made to the owners and the fact that no one has signed him yet. I hope Bonds nails the owners in court. This blackballing is a greater travesty than any asterisk Bonds may have placed on the game.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Although I'm not sure how he can prove the blackballing.

Bonds gets everything he deserves he does not belong in MLB and I hope he never plays again and every stat he has is removed from the record books. He is a disgrace to the game.

Philly_05 that's kinda harsh...there were so many players that roided up over the years..many of them got away with it. He is still one of if not the best hitter in baseball and the fact that he is willing to accept the league minimum and no one has signed him is retarded.

You should say that about everybody else who has been alleged to have done steroids or PEP.

If Bonds hasn't been picked up by now, I don't think he'll ever get picked up. He would've been one of the better DH's in the AL.

Judging by his numbers, he would have been the best DH for many years.

Owners don't want him because he's a terrible teammate not because he can't still hit
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment
