  • Bonds to Turk - Say it to My Face

    This should make the Rockies-Giants games more interesting this year.

    SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Barry Bonds chastised Colorado reliever Turk Wendell on Wednesday for accusing him of using steroids.

    A day after Wendell said it was "clear just seeing his body" that Bonds was taking steroids, the San Francisco Giants slugger said the remark should've been made directly to him -- not a reporter.

    Bonds also used profanity in his response.

    "I heard about his comments. If you've got something to say, say it to my face," Bonds said. "Don't talk through the media."

    "I'm not worried about him. I'm not worried about anyone. I have a lot of respect for Turk Wendell. I have a lot of respect for every baseball player in this game," he added. "You got something to say, you come to my face and say it and we'll deal with each other. Don't talk through the media like you're some tough guy."
    ....
    Speaking after the Giants' first full-squad workout at spring training, Bonds also hinted that he isn't going to put up with as much from pitchers this season -- but he didn't go as far as saying he'd retaliate if he gets hit.

    "I'm not playing with any of these guys out there this year," he said. "It's going to be a battle and a war. That's just what it's going to be. I think sometimes a couple of people got a little bit too comfortable with me, and those things are going to change. And it's going to change quick. Real quick. ...

    "There's going to be a respect level. I'll respect you if you respect me. But if not, then we're going deal with that on the field. ... I don't ever threaten anyone. But things will be different."

      Hey, in the spirit of coming up with witty nicknames, I think Boinds sound pretty good, Trig.

      Bond + Roids = Boinds.

      Take the credit.

        What do you expect when you stand on the plate? Gibby would have knocked him down every time until he backed off. He shouldn't be allowed to wear the armor.
        Asked what he would do differently in Iraq, Kerry said, "Right now, what I would do differently is, I mean, look, I'm not the president, and I didn't create this mess so I don't want to acknowledge a mistake that I haven't made."

          Well Mr Bonds, take off your robot arm, back off the plate a bit and let pitchers pich you inside and see what happens.

            Bonds charging the mound with Gibby on the rubber.

            I would definitely pay to see that.

              His interview was hilarious, he seemed to get more and more angry as time went on.
