New world for Bonds-less Giants
February, 21, 2008
PHOENIX -- "It is," says Bruce Bochy, "different." It is the world of the San Fransisco Giants without the mountainous presence of Barry Bonds for the first time since the end of the George H.W. Bush administration, a world in which Bengie Molina will bat cleanup. "Will there be any national media here again anytime soon?" asked Randy Winn, seeing a sizeable media horde for Day 1 of the post-Barry era. Dave Roberts provided the Bonds update, reporting that he talked to Bonds and that he is working out in case something pops up, but Bochy moved on.
