Here’s Jim Leyland Berating Pre-Steroids Barry Bonds With Copious Curse Words


Jim Leyland has left the Detroit Tigers and announced his retirement from managing MLB at 68 years old. He’ll get serious Hall-of-Fame consideration.

Gregg Doyel wrote an awesome tribute to the man. But our SportsGrid tribute is this wonderful video of Leyland berating awful human being, Barry Bonds.

Fortunately this was pre-roids, or Leyland might not have made it out of there alive.

    Cigarette breath in the face of the all time hr leader. thatimpresses you? You want Jim Leyland in the HOF, but not Barry Bonds. You probably want Pettitte in too, because he’s a swell religious guy. We know all steroid users aren’t created equal to they hypocritical sports media. Why don’t you man up and admit it?

    What did Barry do that made Jim so mad?
    He must have caught him in the clubhouse with needles. Look how skinny Barry’s head is.

  • Tom Emanski Trained

    Yes, he used steroids.
    Yes, he was arrogant.

    What else besides that qualifies him as “an awful human being?”

    haha what are you talking about? when did i say that i wanted leyland in the hall-of-fame and not bonds? i think that bonds should be in, as well as pettite, and maybe leyland. not sure on leyland. i just like the video, because bonds is an asshole

    the lying, the perjury, the bullying, the lying, the bullying, the perjury, the arrogance, the brashness, the every-single-account-of-him-by-anyone-who-ever-spoke-to-him…

    Okay, fair enough. No way Pettitte is a HOFer, but opinions vary. I’m glad you want Bonds in. Add him, Shoeless Joe and Pete Rose and the HOF might actually be a true HOF. Bonds is boorish. That I won’t dispute. A guy who smoke cigarettes in the dugout in 2013 doesn’t thrill me. The good far outweighs the bad with Leyland though.

  • Greg Gutlessfeld

    He didn’t at the time of the video. Look at him. He’s pretty small. You didn’t even watch the video or read the article, clearly.

    The perjury?

    Congress is allowed to insider trade all year long, accept bribe money from K Street lobbyists, and have nothing better to do than call baseball players in front of Grand Juries and rake them over the coals. Personally, I could care less if baseball players lie to Congress about what they put into their own bodies.

    Jerk or A-hole? Sure…I just disagree with the “awful” part, that’s all.

    barry bonds and congress both suck. fair if you don’t think he’s awful, but every single thing i’ve read about barry bonds has implied that he’s not a good human being.
