Wheres Barry Gonna Go?

37 posts in this topic

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

      We've done well in late June.   May need to move offshore more.  Cranks or spinners till you find fish then slow down if needed.   I use the public access.  Not usually too busy mid summer.

        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.  
    • Walleye #1
      Always worth it to go fishing.  That time of year your best bet from what your schedule sounds like would be to put crank baits on and trolling the edges and tops of the reefs or do some slip bobber fishing down on that end of the lake.  Huddles Reef, Variety, Olsons, etc. would all be places to start, but the crankbait bite can be good.    
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!
    • gunner55
      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share 
    • Wheres_Walter
      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks
