Bonds is Sueing

He will prolly have a case. I mean it wont be hard to find evidence of people defaming him in public w/o proof. Especially the Tax evasion part.

Will he? Like oriole119 already said, this would be pretty much most/all of the national media. Also, is it really defamation if there's a good chance that most/all of the comments are true? Wouldn't it then be on Barry to prove that he's not on 'roids??

LOL.

He has no case.

Let's see if he actually goes through with it. :rolleyes:

Palmeiro was going to sue Jose too.

Probably just more "roid rage" from Barry.

Ahaha, they can't get him on defamation of character because whether it was intentional or not, he DID use PED's.

I really hope the court's time isn't wasted in a tedious semantical argument about whether it's defamation of character to suggest he did it intentionally.

Funny how he decides to take this public after he breaks the record. Classic Barry though. It's all about Barry in case you forgot.

I was really hoping he would just retire after breaking the record. I'm so sick of hearing his name. I guess there are a few more career records he needs to try to selfishly break.:rolleyes:

I think he's about half a season away from 3000 hits. I'm sure that's the reason he wants to play one more year.

Hmmm... Bonds vs. Schilling. Two of my favorites. Is there a way they can both lose that lawsuit and have to give all their money to charity?? :D

If by "charity" you mean "lawyers," then yes. Of course, you don't mean that. ;)

If Bonds tried to sue the authors of A Game of Shadows, then that would get my attention. That is by far the most damning and unambiguous portrayal of Bonds' history with PEDs. If Bonds was serious about fighting through the courts to clear his name, then that's the obvious place to start.

The current public perception of Bonds is largely attributable to (or at least greatly supported by) that book. Go straight to the source if you truly mean business here. Anything short of that, though, is just frivolous posturing that should be ignored (and quite possibly punished).

    • This is all good news but I think when he starts throwing off the mound is when the real test comes in.
    • Fabian feels similar to EBJ in that it’s just the one very big question with his profile. Completely different questions of course, but they both check the defense & walks boxes and Fabian has the power and EBJ has the contact. I feel a lot better about EBJ’s chances of tapping into a sufficient amount of power than I do about Fabian reaching a sufficient level of contact, but it helps that Fabian is RH and EBJ is LH.  Easy to envision them being great complements to each other down the road if they can both answer those questions. They are probably the players I’m most interested in tracking this year, because they’re good test cases for the Orioles development process, but also because IMO  they’re the only true CF prospects we have right now who could/should be ready by the time Mullins is a FA. CF is pretty much the only spot on the field we don’t otherwise have a ton of options at for the next ~6+ years. 
    • Eh, noise. IDGAF anyway, having cut the cord long ago. I know the feeling though… Dish pulled that BS a couple years ago. I’m hoping Rubenstein can find a way to ala carte everything. There will certainly be demand.
    • I haven’t seen this mentioned anywhere, but Irvin morphed his slider into a cutter last year that is by far his best pitch by Stuff+. He threw it 16% of the time too, decent usage but could be increased more. He’s always going to score poorly in stuff for pitch models but very well in command grades, so even some slight upticks in stuff could make a big difference. His curve is also decent. He relies a lot on his fastball/sinker/change, so I’d be interested in him moving more towards the cutter/curve (which generally are still effective against RH batters). Irvin was absolutely unreal horrific in his first few starts last season, which tanked his season numbers (particularly xERA), but really righted the ship after that. He’s a decent piece to be a 5th starter, he’s been very durable, throws a lot of strikes and as a result can pitch a lot of innings (if you aren’t pulling him early in close games), and is a good fit for OPACY. It’s just a bad spot that our depth chart is already whittled down to him being that to start the year. 
    • Things aren’t looking good for MASN and comcast.     Would still figure they find a way to get a deal done but it doesn’t seem as certain as I think it was.
    • Verlander needs 140 IP and a clean doctor's note to assure himself of 1/35 next season but if he misses that I could see him somewhere on Elias' target list for the year over year Lyles-Gibson-Kimbrel 1-year contract stretch. Its a bit of an art question for baseball how it wants to grapple with all Friedman and Driveline have brought to the game.    Roki Sasaki or Paul Skenes or even Grayson Rodriguez might be their generation's Justin Verlander but today's game will constrain them from revealing it as fully to baseball fans even if they are. Verlander has become a TJ statistic in recent years, but for me he really isn't - every bit of work on his Hall of Fame plaque was done before the surgeon took some of him.
    • Buried in the article, but it says this:   “Verlander said he heard at the trade deadline that the Dodgers and Orioles were interested, and he said he’d have accepted Los Angeles or even Baltimore if those were the options. “I’m from Virginia,” Verlander said. But when Houston, where he’d won his rings, became viable, he said he was happy to “steer things” that way.”
