That's because bonds isn't in the player's association anymore. espn has some sort of tie with the MLBPA, so they can't use his real name.

I got my man Bonds in the second round and I'm glad to have him. I got Soriano Giambi and Rolen along with Randy so I'm content to be in playoff senario.

Oh I love the theories ...
Well, Yahoo Baseball is the official game of the MLBPA and his name is Barry Bonds in their game. Why?

I'll therorize that ESPN just overreacted. :-D
