Head shown to scale. Testicals actual size.I am so sick of Barry Bonds. I am so sick of him that I needed to take a Nyquil just to write this post. I am so sick of him I am keeping a trash can by me right now in case I need to vomit and can’t make it to the bathroom in time. I am so sick of him that I have a rash.

But he just. Won’t. Go. Away.

From the LA Times:

Barry Bonds will continue his pursuit of all-time home-run leader Hank Aaron next season, with contract discussions expected to begin with the San Francisco Giants as early as next week, the agent for the 42-year-old slugger said Tuesday.

Bonds recently expressed optimism for a 22nd major-league season after two years spent battling knee injuries, recovering from subsequent surgeries and managing the fallout from implications that he used steroids for at least several seasons….

“Barry’s going to play in 2007,” Jeff Borris of Beverly Hills Sports Council said Tuesday. “I’ve had many discussions with Barry and he’s going to play. My intentions are to see to it he’s in a big-league uniform next season. Those are my marching orders.”

Bonds, who is in the final days of a five-year, $90-million contract with the Giants, can become a free agent after the season. His 26 home runs this season, including nine in his last 66 at-bats, give him 734, 21 behind Aaron.

No, no, no. NO.

If some team is soulless enough to sign Barry Bonds next year, he better set a new single-season¬†record for intentional walks. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going out for a bottle of Vicks VapoRub, a box of Kleenex, and an IV drip.¬†

  1. Coley, how many stat sites did you have to peruse to come up with a VORP stat. What the hell is that and how is it computed? Value over Replacement Player? Sounds a tad bit arbitrary to me.

    And Zimmerman’s VORP must have been huge, too. He was replacing Vinny Castilla for god’s sake.
