No kidding? I'm watching the re-run of it on the local FOX sports network. He hasn't hit it yet.

Just saw it on the re-broadcast.

Barry shouldn't accept it if the guy gives it back, or he should give the guy some serious cash if he does. You just gotta give the guy some kind of reward for his good fortune. Giving one ball back is noble, giving 2 back is just beyond any expectations.

They actually interviewed the guy that gave Bonds #660 back yesterday before the game. I even remember his name - Larry Ellison - same as the chairman of Oracle.

Bonds gave him uniforms, bats, balls, and tickets to upcoming games. Some of the stuff was signed by Bonds & Mays.

The guy was asked what he'd do if he got #661 (which he did) and he said he'd keep it for himself on display at his home.

Pretty amazing he got both - the replay was pretty funny - he had to jump off his raft which tipped over and totally spilled the contents of his cooler all over the Cove. Guess it was worth it.

I hate to be negative- but maybe now we can stop hearing about Barry until we get sick, and maybe ESPN will show some other games besides Barry's Giants. Congrats Barry, now step aside and let others have some limelight.

Forget the man crush. I drop what I'm doing to watch Zack Greinke pitch.
