Next Stop: Coffin?

"A dejected Barry Bonds said Tuesday that there's a chance he might not return this season because of multiple knee surgeries." [More...]

Sucks for everyone that had their fantasy draft already...hey, at least he's not dead already.

Is this a ploy so he has an excuse when he comes back in 2 months 50 pounds lighter and head 6 hat sizes smaller? You know, with all this steroid talk he probably just decided to stop taking them, and now he needs an out because he is going to shrink back to the size and strength of a normal 41 year old man. I hate him, I really do.

So...here's a quick thought:

Remember when Jordan first retired and there were rumors goin around that Mr. Stern forced him to take a couple years off because of the gambling -- a "quiet" suspension.

Not that Bonds is the type of guy to keep quiet, but any chance this "year off" is being forced by the league or even the government (trade off for not making him testify) in light of the roids scandal?

I love conspiracy theories.

I love comspiracy theories too, but I don't think that's the case here. I truly think he's getting older and 'roids are leaving him weak and broken down.

Look how fast McGwire broke down after that 98 season...pretty fuckin quick. Two years later he only played in 89 games, and the following season he played in 92 games and hit .187.

I'm not saying Bonds' skills will deteriorate, but he's 41 years old soon -- he's gonna break down.

Looking back at the "Bonds could die" article. Shelden Williams looks exactly like Ken Griffey Jr. did in the Simpsons episode after he become addicted to the human growth drink and his head swells.

Thanks Anon. Eventually we'll have everyone on board with that line of thinking...

Canseco was so nice back then, saving that woman's appliances. Now look at'im.
