Bonds Arrives

Barry Bonds' much anticipated spring training arrival took place Tuesday and he came ready to play. In the teams first full squad workout Bonds impressed, and proved he is ready to start his 22nd summer of major league baseball. He took batting practice of the Giants' top two pitchers, Barry Zito and Matt Cain, and was roping the ball all over the yard. His most impressive swing came off Cain when he hit a mammoth shot to right field. According to all the reports and judging by what I saw on ESPN, Bonds' looks like he's in great shape, better than when he reported last year. He participated in the full team workout and was shown chatting it up and getting along with all the players. The Giants' "Two Barry's" also had a nice surprise for the media as Bonds' and Barry Zito even sported matching shirts that stated on the back "Don't ask me, ask Barry" with an arrow pointing horizontally. As always, Bonds met with the press before the first workout of the spring, and of course didn't have much to say regarding anything about off-field issues. I don't think the Giants' could have asked for a better kick off to the spring. Everybody arrived healthy, on time and ready to roll.

    Barry did look like Barry in classic form. Dissed the media, then went out and hit a bomb.

    As good as Barry will be, they still have no protection for him.

    I wonder if he finished the last "cycle" before the start of camp this year.

    Durham and Molina or Durham and a better Winn/Linden are protection. This team will score some runs.
