You can understand Jeff Borris saying it, afterall, he has to protect his client. However, Barry Bonds’ agent overstated it the other night when he said, “I think, for the last 14 years, they’ve taken him for granted … and they’re taking him for granted now.”
For the past 14 years, Bonds has had pretty much free reign in San Francisco to do what he wants, when he wants, and to hell with everybody else. C’mon, that he’s cheated is only a glimpse into his arrogance.
The Giants have gone after Alfonso Soriano and Carlos Lee, and are making a run at Manny Ramirez. It’s clear indication bringing Bonds back isn’t Priority One.
Privately, don’t you know MLB hopes Bonds goes unsigned and is forced to retire? I’m thinking before it’s over, Bonds will end up back with the Giants, who are used to the headache he provides.
