Barry Bonds has third surgery

Wednesday, May 4, 2005

Barry Bonds has undergone a third surgery and is now displaying this picture on his website. LINK

Was the surgery an amputation? Where'd Barry's leg go? So, while I continue to study for my financial accounting exam, I'll leave it at this:

  • Barry's going to be losing his spot on my fantasy disabled list. I doubt he'll be able to give me a late season push.

  • Barry is at 703. How many surgery's do you think he'll undergo before deciding to give it up?

  • He's still 53 dingers shy of Hank Aaron... thats probably two more seasons. And if he doesn't come back from his surgery as he was before, that could prove to be a three year quest.

  • Barry Bonds: "Where's Julio Franco's phone number?"

I also heard that Craig Biggio stole his 400th career SB last night. I'm not an Astros fan, but I do think Biggio's a hall of fame caliber player. Not as good as Sandberg, but still HOF material.

As for Robby Alomar, I don't know, there's definitely a question of What have you done for me lately? When a player's production is so heavily weighted to the front end of his career, its difficult to say. (That means you Junior.)

Jim Thome and Kenny Lofton are on the DL for the Phils? Ouch, I think I had said they were going to win the wild card this year... probably not going to happen.

Bud Selig wants to toughen the steroid policy to a three-strikes-you're-out method. The first offense would be 50 games, the second 100, and the third would be a lifetime suspension.

I like the tougher policy, but I'm still worried about false positives. I wish baseball would disclose more information as to why guys are being caught. 50 games is fine on a first time offense if the guy is juicing... its not fine if he takes something over the counter that he didn't know violated the policy.

OK, thats all for now. Actual substance promised by Friday. Now, its time to get back to pension accounting... ugghh.
