Now, I think Barry Bonds is one of the greatest players, if not the greatest, baseball player of my generation.
Having said that, if the Orioles sign Barry Bonds, like some faithful listeners want, it would look as if the O’s are taking a huge step back.
The Orioles look as if they are trying to get young and finally start over. Barry Bonds signing is Sammy Sosa, all over again. Bonds would be more effective on a team that is close and needs a veteran bat to get them over.
