Barry Bonds in Twins Pins?

40 posts in this topic

How much would it cost to sign bonds? 4 to 6 million?

Would he not be a deecent DH on the twins? I would like to see him hit 763 plus in the metrodome!!!

I hope the twins do not even try to sign Bonds. His ego would not be a good fit in the clubhous. The twins are trying to build a you team for the future, and although Bonds was a great player (even though he had help) he would not be a good fit in a Twins uniform.

IF they were a Barry Bonds from winning it all, I would say go for it even though I cannot stand the guy.

If it were '02 or '03 I think it would be a great move. Not in '08 however as I don't think they are any one player away from winning it all.

That would be a major dissapointment. It would ruin what our team stands for. We never really have any big name guys on the roster, but we always seem to do pretty good. A guy like bonds would give us too much attention.

Yuck! Leave him out of here. I don't care about his production, he would bring the team down.

I think it would take more then $6 mil to get Bonds to play, I dont like him, but he is fun to watch, he would bring in fans, and if we had his bat in our lineup it would be a tough line up to beat! I think his career stats should be wiped off the books, and people should stop even counting how many homers he has. But if he played for the Twins, Im pretty sure everyone of you would cheer everytime he hit a homerun! I would! I dont like him, but I would disslike him alot less if he was knocking out homers for us, rather then against us, since he is bound to end up in the AL.

Sounds like a plan 11,

Maybe he could room with Juan "Roid"-Con !!! And they could trade supplement secrets! LOL

Bonds is a big-time [jerk-bait] and would be a mess in the clubhouse -- he does not play the Twins Way. During his first very slow jog to first his ear would be bleeding from Gardy yelling at him.

No way, Jose Canseco.

Might as well add Canseco if we are going to add a bunch of self-enflamed roid [PoorWordUsage].

I don't think he will get over 6 million because of the fact of the steroid cloud and his age.

Hes so close to 3000 and hitting more homers...I would assume he'd take a drastic pay cut to play somewhere...

I'll doubt we will get him but I sure would take him in a heartbeat.

If we did get him I don't believe he would be the cancer in the clubhouse that you all think he'd be......

Windy do you really think your Whitesox's are not as dirty as the rest of major league baseball is?

Pier,

For the most part I would say yes! I believe that my favorite White Sox players are not as dirty as the rest of major league baseball players are and if they are then they are smarter for not getting caught!

If the Twins signed Bonds, I would only cheer for 8 Twins on the nights Bonds played.

Whos the other starter you wouldnt cheer for, I am assuming that if Bonds goes to AL he would be a DH.

Bonds would never come to play in Minnesota unless he knew we were in the running for a WS. A couple years ago, I would have loved him on our team. He might have been able to put us over the hump. However, with the way the Twins are going, I don't see it making any sense to pay him when there is likely little chance of them going anywhere this year.

I hate him too, but wouldn't have minded seeing a DH with that kind of pop and on-base skills. He would have been monster to put in the middle of a lineup with Mauer, Morneau, Hunter, Cuddyer. Should-woulda-coulda.

Might as well add in Big Papi -- one the biggest mistakes in MN baseball history.

Cut for nothin'.

big pappi in boston and david ortiz in minnesota are two different creatures.

Ortiz didn't show any signs of what was to come. He was something like a 275 hitter with 58 homers in 4 plus years for us.

He nearly matched his twins totals in 2006 alone...

I cruised to Naytahwaush to visit my mother today and everything was locked up besides Lake LaSalle , thich is 200+ feet deep.

      To be honest, a willingness to move and "hole-hop" is a great way to find biting fish.    Anothet shout-out to MN Lake Finder.
