Wheres Barry Gonna Go?

Recommended Posts

zamboni

As you all know, the Giants have made it very clear to Mr Bonds he isn't needed there next season. Personally, I think he set the all-time homer record and the Giants have sold their tickets. Where does everyone think he'll end up? Yankees? Red Sox?

An AL team for sure. Unless he wants to play first in the NL. I could see Detroit making a run. Toronto?

I heard he was going to be the Vice President in charge of Research and Developement at BALCO! Perfect place for him.

Although the Twins need the power, they don't need another left handed batter. Money would be better spent on Torii. Consider this, even with Barry's baggage, he still was one of the top vote getters for the All Star Game. He is still popular and not just with the Giants fans.

Guy has 50 home run potential still, hope all you want, in the AL as a DH, he still has 4-5 years left in him.

Zamboni,

All I can pray for is, NOT ON MY TEAM!

Once a turd, always a turd and Barry is one of the biggest.

He can take his 50 taters to the Yankees.

I see Gardy made a coment about the possibilities as bonds being the dh for the twins, saying he would make it work if he would come here. In the Trib

I would take Bonds on for the Twins. You get a guy like him and you find a way to make it work. However, we all know the Twins will not pony up the money to get him. I still say Detroit or Toronto. If worse comes to worse he will sign with a bad team like Tampa or KC just to get hid 3,000 hit and that team will dump him for prospects at the trade deadline.

Where's Bonds Gonna Go?


To Jail for perjury!

Sounds like they wouldn't be bringing these charges up against him and after so long if they didn't have some pretty good dirt. Sounds like he's dead in the water.

The Feds must have plenty as his Balco buddy Anderson was released yesterday from the slam.

I have a hard time thinking he's going to jail, but his baseball career is over, along with any chance at the hall of fame.

Shoeless Joe and Pete Rose will be in the hall before Barry. Whether he is found guilty or not he's done.

Why'd they wait till after he *"broke the record"?

Notice the asterisk? "Hammerin Hank" is still King my BOOK!

When I first read it, I thought you wrote "incineration." Either way, I agree.

All this asterick stuff is a big joke. Everybody that brings it up and thinks thats how it should be needs a wake up call. If you think Barry is a bad player because he may have used steroids you dont know too much about the game. What do steroids do for you. Make you stronger? Ok so he can hit the ball farther good for him. To be able to still hit the ball on those 95mph fastballs time after time, at his age still nonetheless is far better than most of us can do. I'm not gonna take anything away from Barry. He broke the record whether everybody likes it or not. He is one of the best players to play the game and he does not deserve an "asterik" like everybody thinks. In sports today steroids are a normal thing. Accept it. Even if its not allowed it will always be there. Have you read and heard about the numerous people that get suspended every year for it? Did you know a good majority of high school athletes are on steroids. Random testing was just made mandatory in Texas high school football. Do you want to just start handing asteriks out to everybody like stickers or what. Very disappointing to see so many people rag on a guy for something a good majority of the rest of the league is doing too. Give the guy a break and lose the asterik....all it is is a star...should it even really mean anything

The one thing you said that I can agree with. An asterisk would be too good for this *ssh*le.

Cheater. Plain & Simple.

Steroids are a "performance enhancing drug".

Performance Enhancing!

If he wasn't on 'roids at his age, he wouldn't be in that shape and able to perform the way he does.

The other thing to remember he isn't in trouble now for taking steroids, he's in trouble for lying to a grand jury under oath. Somewhere along the line he thought he was above the law and could get away with what he wanted to. Apparently that carried over to the court room which was a big no-no.

Somehow this is very commonplace now for today's professional athletes. They do whatever they want, and hire the best lawyers their overinflated salaries can afford to get them off. Its sick. frown.gif

      As you know I have the 6 inch K Drill after loosing 3 of the biggest pike iv'e seen this weekend not being able to get them up the hole. I need a bigger auger for pike. I have a 7 inch mora hand auger and ordered a plate. Will this work OK or should I get the 8 inch K-drill the width is 7 1/2 inches. I'm willing to spend the $230 for the 8 inch if recommended. My wrists just can't take the 8 inch K drill or Mora drill only was able to use someone else's for a short bit. Worried the Mora will ruin the drill long term. Thanks

      I've always just used electrical tape.  It stretches and forms to the reel foot and rod handle.  Usually stays secure and sheds water.  I don't switch teelsnoften so taking the tape off is not a big issue for me.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Agreed a buddy of mine uses the little green bands from bait shops for minnow bags very stiff but hold reels on very secure. Personally I don’t like rods that have to have reels taped on just because I like trying new reels with rods and I’m always switching things around.

      You can get around anywhere on Ottertail. I have been out there the past couple weekends and we currently have 20"+ of ice. It is a little rough and some deeper snow drifts but you shouldn't have a problem. A lot of houses and traffic on the lake. 
    • Wanderer
      Ditto this. ^^^^.  Plus they eventually crack and break.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Mike, the clam bar is going to be your best bet. But I run the troo shine strip lights in my one man flip. There great super bright and have sticky tape on them to connect to a pole. The clam light bar is about same in price maybe a bit more but extremely bright and can be mounted in your poles. I also have the clam sled lights on mine to not as bright but helps light up the ice in front for fishing or the sled or both. Hope that helps 
    • MikeG3Boat
      I am looking for a LED Rope lights to hang in my clam ice house for fishing at night.  I know you can purchase a light bar from clam, but I am thinking there must be a cheaper way.  I am looking for suggestions.  Please provide the brand.  Thanks, Mike

      The white hockey tape, then black electric tape over.  The hockey tape by itself gets too wet for me. The black electric tape sheds water better than the hockey tape.  After a few yrs of use the black will leave a gunky residue on the rod if used by itself Have also tried the reel bands, not a big fan of them when fighting a big fish.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Masking tape on rod handle then electrical tape reel to rod. Works good!
    • BriGuy88
      Hockey tape for me.  Bought a roll 10 years ago and probably have another 10 years left in it, unless I go on a shopping spree for rods/reels!
