It's people like you that spawn the warnings on hairdryers that say "Do not use in the shower".
Thats just uncalled for.
Anyway, how is Bonds in the field? Certainly that matters when a player is claimed to be the best PLAYER in the game and not just hitter.
Vlad, Pujols, and Alex are just three players I'd rather have on my team than Barry
Bonds is probably below average in the field, but would you rather have:
A) a .400 OBP, 1.000 OPS, and a good fielder
B) a .600 OBP, 1.400 OPSand a below-average fielder.
Remember, .400-1.000 is good, but .600-1.400 is godly. Insane. Out of this world.
I'd rather have Bonds than anyone right now.
The AL MVP was not that big of a deal to me. I hadn't made a decision, and therefore it didn't matter as much.
I completely agree with this. Bonds' offense more than outweighs his defensive struggles.
