SHOCK! Barry Bonds’ Career is Over!

Jeff Borris, the agent for erstwhile San Francisco Giant Barry Bonds is apparently the last one to realize that his client’s career is over. While Bonds is still not officially retired, “It’s two years since he played his last game, and if there was any chance he’d be back in a major-league uniform, it would have happened by now,” Jeff Borris said.

“When 2008 came around, I couldn’t get him a job. When 2009 came around, I couldn’t get him a job. Now, 2010 … I’d say it’s nearly impossible,” Borris said, “It’s an unfortunate ending to a storied career.”

Sure, it’s somewhat unfortunate, but had Bonds been willing to sublimate his ego and accept a far-reduced salary he probably could have caught on with someone in 2008. Because he was unwilling to accept that his very presence causes a whole host of problems for his club, and that those problems translate to less salary for him, Bonds was left without a job. It’s somewhat of a shame, he could probably still walk onto a field today and post up a OPS over .900 and sock 20 HRs in limited service.

That’s the way megalomania goes, I suppose.
