Barry Bonds appeal heads back to court

Barry Bonds gets another attempt to overturn his obstruction of justice conviction when an 11-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals hears arguments in his case Thursday.

Game 132: Pirates 5 Cardinals 2

Despite my obvious devotion to Andy Van Slyke as a kid, the iconic early 1990s Pittsburgh Pirate memory for me has always been Barry Bonds’s walkoff home run off of Lee Smith. I’m sure that almost every Pirate fan that remember 1991 remembers that home run; Bonds crushes a ball to right center and throws his arms in celebration before slowing starting his trot to first base....

Talent Comparison: Trout vs. Bonds

Mike Trout is the arguably the best player in baseball with the ability to hit for contact and power at a level that is not matched by many.  That isn’t his only weapon in his arsenal though; Trout is faster than any 230lb man as any right to be.  Stealing 30 bases a year would be easy for Trout, though this year his team is holding him back.  When I look at Trout and all he...

Barry Bonds' role with Giants a next-year thing

Giants President Larry Baer plans to speak after the season with Barry Bonds about possible roles on and off the field in 2015 for the all-time home run leader, but there have been no talks about Bonds reprising his spring training-instruction gig during what is left of 2014. Bonds visited AT&T Park on Friday, as he has several times this season, but only for what he called...

Pedro Martinez: Bonds and Clemens belong in the Hall

In what is certainly the most divisive debate in National Baseball Hall of Fame history, a contemporary of Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens has come out in favor of their induction into the Hall.  Former Los Angeles Dodgers, Montreal Expos, and Boston Red Sox ace Pedro Martinez thinks they belong, based upon achievement (presumably) before they were implicated in a number of performance...

Pedro Martinez: Clemens, Bonds should be in Hall of Fame

Never one to shy away from controversy, Pedro Martinez is once again making headlines. The outspoken pitcher was in Boston Thursday to watch his former team beat up on the Houston Astros, get inducted into the Red Sox Hall of Fame and, naturally, answer some questions about his fellow inductee Roger Clemens. “With all due respect to everybody that votes, I’ll have to say Roger...

Pedro Martinez: Clemens, Bonds Have ‘Legit Chance’ To Make Hall Of Fame

BOSTON — When Pedro Martinez looks at Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds — two symbols, fairly or unfairly, of Major League Baseball’s Steroid Era — he sees Hall of Famers. Clemens and Bonds, both of whom have been the subject of performance-enhancing drug allegations, fell short in their first two years on baseball’s Hall of Fame ballot. Martinez, who was inducted into the...

Baseball PED radar on high alert waiting for new Biogenesis names

I have a list. So do you, right? If you're a baseball fan and you're hearing that more names are about to be connected to Biogenesis, the cheatingest PED factory since BALCO, this is where you dig through your mental rolodex for the names of guys you're sure are cheating. It wouldn't be fair to say that list out loud, certainly not with a megaphone as large as the...

Giants Fans Look to Fund Barry Bonds Statue

Like it or not…a Barry Bonds statue might very well be on its way to the sidewalks outside AT&T Park in San Francisco.  That is, of course, if a group of enterprising Giants fans have their way. Introducing “Barry Bronze”, a grassroots initiative to help raise the $60,000 necessary to commission an eight-foot-tall statue of Bonds and deliver it to the team the home run...

What would George Constanza have traded to get Bonds and Griffey?

Full disclosure: I’m a Seinfeld freak. I can recite episodes verbatim and I usually don’t have any problem using a line from the show to describe something happening in my every day life. It’s a gift. So as both a Seinfeld freak and a baseball freak, I’ve always enjoyed the episodes where the two intermingled. One episode is 1996′s “The Caddy” when George locks his...

Barry Bonds Turns 50

Thursday, home run king Barry Bonds turned 50. And, that night, the seven-time National League MVP celebrated the milestone with friends and family. Joining the recently slimmed down slugger…Rich Aurilia (who played with Bonds from 1995-2003 and in 2007), his son Nikolai and Randy Winn (2005-2007), my guess is that Jeff Kent skipped the affair. Happy belated birthday, Barry.

The Historic Clash of Barry Bonds and Jim Leyland

Has Barry Bonds helped Giants' hitters prosper?

Is the ghost of Barry Bonds sitting on the shoulders of the Giants' hitters these days? Probably not. Technically, Bonds would have to be dead for his ghost to be lurking, and he's alive, but you know what I mean. The Giants are hitting the nacho cheese out of the baseball, and maybe it's an early surge, blind squirrels finding nuts. Manager Bruce Bochy might have unintentionally...

A few thoughts about Barry Bonds

If we’re being perfectly honest, I hadn’t planned on writing about Barry Bonds’ presence at Monday’s opener any more than I already had; I was going to mention it in passing, clap politely for Bonds when he was announced, and then go nuts for Andrew McCutchen. People are really fired up about this, though, and it’s one of those things that I think tends to break down along...
