MLB’s polarizing home run king* spent a week with the Giants in early March as a special hitting instructor. Now they’re leading all of baseball with 12 HRs. Did Barry give Giants’ hitters the secret password for getting the ball out of the park, just like the border collie gave Babe the pig the password to get the sheep in the pen?
In his first day as hitting instructor, a skinny Bonds told reporters in Scottsdale that he should be in the Hall of Fame “without a doubt”.
Damn, you cold, Trebek!
Why Didn’t Anyone Want To Buy Barry Bonds’ Outrageous Beverly Hills Mansion? Probably Because It Cost $25 Million
We’re going to assume the $25 million asking price is the reason nobody bit on Barry Bonds’ sprawling mansion in Beverly Hills for the past 11 months. It’s not like the next owner will also see his balls shrink to hilariously small proportions, right?
Will one lucky collector hit a big payday with what is perhaps the most ironic baseball card ever? Our guess: No.
Dishonesty weighs heavily on the soul, and also on ballpark walls, apparently. The bronze plaque that commemorated Barry Bonds’ record-breaking 756th homer is missing, and the Giants say they have no idea who took it. May we suggest stronger glue? Mix up some Elmer’s with some HGH, that oughta do it.
This year’s baseball Hall of Fame vote was a controversial one, with a number of suspected and/or confirmed PED users on the ballot. It was supposed to be A Moment In History, when the baseball writers of America draw a line in the sand concerning steroids. And they did, and it was a harsh one: no one was enshrined.
With Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa, And Roger Clemens On The HOF Ballot, Cooperstown And The Steroids Era Are Headed Towards Inevitable Clash
With alleged (and proved) steroid users like Mark McGwire and Rafael Palmeiro having been on the National Baseball Hall of Fame ballot for a few years now, the storm between baseball writers and the Steroid Era has been brewing considerably. But with Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa, and Roger Clemens now on the ballot, the eye of that storm has arrived.
Happy Friday, loyal SportsGrid readers. As my final act as a SportsGrid intern, I bring you 377 seconds of unadulterated sports history brilliance through video. This is why we love sports. I got goosebumps watching it for the fifth time today. It’s that good.
