are you kidding me, sick?! that's what he told reporters. everyone knows he's frustrated as hell with how poorly his team has been playing. you're right, it's not his fault that he gets walked way too many times, and espn won't stop writing reports about how MLB should change the intentional walk rule just because of barry. but still, this guy claims to be a team player and he's everything but that. and as for the argument that he's human...he's not, and he's proved that he's not. anyone who hits 70+ HR in a season is super-human. the guy's arms are the size of my torso. come on, you could hit .091 in the last month. and i didn't draft him, i was gone the week that my league decided to move up the draft and so, due to pre-rankings, my first pick went to barry. no one would've wasted a first round pick on him due to the balco deal, maybe that's the root of my angst. but don't sit there and make up excuses for his underachieving. he's supposedly got one foot in the hall of fame door and this is the way he's gonna treat the situation of playing on a poor team. way to go barry, a true giant.
