Expect Bonds to be real good in '08
September, 24, 2007
Plenty of speculation over the weekend about Barry Bonds' next team. SI.com's Jon Heyman goes further than anybody, ranking his top 10 candidates, beginning with Texas, Oakland and Seattle. I hadn't thought about the Rangers, but I think Heyman might be on to something here ...
Owner Tom Hicks made hay with his surprise signing of Sammy Sosa after Sosa missed an entire season and failed miserably the year before in Baltimore, and Hicks was spied cheering Bonds while accompanying the commish on the home-run chase. Hicks complained that the Rangers' signing of Juan Gonzalez was a waste in that they got the post-juice Gonzalez. Well, Bonds is still producing.
