Regular commenter Atheose left the following question in the previous thread. I thought it deserved its own discussion:
By the way, did anyone hear that Bonds is offering to play for free?
He said he’ll donate 100% of his earnings towards buying game tickets
for underprivaledged children. With Matsui down, how would Yanks fans
feel about signing him?
The guys at No Maas have been advocating this move for a while now. Baseball-wise this is clearly (at least in my humble opinion) a no-brainer, especially if Matsui is down for a while (although signs point to him recovering soon). So we’re left with the dicey moral questions, and Bonds’ general unlikeability.
Hey, it would be quite the story, wouldn’t it? I say go for the spectacle. It’s New York City. We can handle it.
And the chances of this happening? Probably .011%
