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).

    • Yep.   I'll be pleasantly surprised if he makes the OD roster.    Verducci Effect or not, the benefit for the Club if it can acquire control of his 2029 is large.     Grayson Rodriguez's 2022 platform has not been enough for Mike Elias to plan to pitch him 26 weeks or 33 starts in MLB in 2023.     The rest is just a question of asset management. Pittsburgh Roansy Contreras is a talented young pitcher maybe close to Grayson's ballpark, has been the 100-loss Pirates second best starter this year by ERA+, and was optioned back to AAA yesterday like he was Nick Vespi or something.   There's a chicken-egg game with SP's building up to take the full Jordan Lyles complement, and Clubs "protecting their best interests" by looking out for them.   And then, the meta-game where the MATH doesn't make sense for anyone except maybe 10 guys per league to take the full Jordan Lyles complement. It isn't that Grayson Rodriguez isn't as awesome as Gunnar Henderson...he just isn't ramped up enough.   And competitively, you aren't maximizing the roster well enough on a daily basis if "tired Grayson Rodriguez" gets one of your 13 precious spots that day. In terms of what the 2023 Orioles will be, I hope they use him straight out of the gate, and start tinkering with load management if being the 6th best or better team in the league looks likely after a few months.   But I don't think that's what will happen.     The Mariners Logan Gilbert and George Kirby cases this year are decent analogs, and curious to see what they have left for this month.
    • Yes, at 3B/SS/2B.  860 OPS at 1B could be 750 at the big league level, which gets you Mountcastle.  With plus defense across other IF positions, that's positive WAR.
    • I am glad we don't have to choose at least not now anyway.  I would also go with Adley for the intangibles.
    • This probably means we get a grand finale of the Aguilar and Odor Show in game 2. 
    • Why are they even playing these games, everything is set for the playoffs. I would hate to see somebody pick-up a significant injury in a meaningless game. 
    • Yea, I agree with this.  He’s definitely down the list of guys I would cut but I also wouldn’t hesitate to do it if we had to.  Chances are they won’t need to add 15 guys to the 40 man this offseason, so it’s probably a moot point but once you get into that area of needing to drop the 10th guy off the current 40 man list, his spot becomes precarious.
    • The orioles will probably have around 38 guys on the 40 man by the rule 5 draft. If you’re taking more guys off of it then you need to put more players on. There aren’t that many options to add that I see a situation where bubble guys like Zimmerman are left off and bubble guys like Handley aren’t added.
