Rejoice non-Giants fans

Barry Bonds will not be tainting your hometown team with his huge melon and his syringes. Bonds has agreed to a one-year contract with the Giants for $16M. There are incentives in the deal (we wonder if “don’t get caught with steroids” is one of them) that could make the deal worth up to $20M.

While the offseason has been filled with Bonds’ agent and the Giants sniping at each other, apparently money solves everything as both sides played nice. Bonds gets his $16M-$20M and goes back to the only stadium where he isn’t booed and the Giants get to cash in on Bonds as he chases Hank Aaron’s home run record.

Longtime readers of the blog know that we hate Barry Bonds and hope he breaks his arm before he catches Hammerin’ Hank in the home run record books. He’s only got 22 to go. Don’t be suprised if he conveniently breaks the record in San Francisco.

do you hate mcgwire too? — Just wondering. You should, otherwise I’m going to call you out as a bandwagon-riding-mob-mentality hypocrite. There’s a lot of steroid blame to go around, all the way to the top (the owners and commish).

yep — Mcgwire might be the second worst. His testimony in front of congress was a joke. And it’s no surprise that Sosa’s career faded into Bolivia as well. And how about his all of the sudden having no grasp of the english language.
