Bonds admits he's less motivated...

Postby KolbSaves » Tue Feb 24, 2004 9:50 am

Just saw an interview on ESPN where he said among other things about the passing of his father:

"I never had to analyze tape, my dad always did it for me"

"This offseason I didn't want to do anything, I had no motivation"

"The only reason I ever played was for the approval of my dad and Willie (Mays)"

"The first time I got in a batting cage this spring I broke down, I couldn't do it"

he went on to say that his mom told him that he had to do it for himself and that he was going to hit as many hr as he could

so take it as you will
"If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants."

Hmmm... not good news. Combine this with Balco, and I'm not a big fan of Bonds this year. At least not a first-round fan.
I'm back. Sorta.

Do not boo Johnny.

I think all the steroid fuss is getting to him as well.

When asked about his trainer's testimony yesterday Bonds offered to submit to daily urine testing. Sounds like he's getting stressed out.

i feel bad for any guy that loses a family member, but the rest of what bonds is saying is just plain silly. "test me everyday, i have nothing to hide" sure you have nothing to hide. you've had four months to cycle off of the roids.
