Barry Bonds Is Not Going to the Sox

With the injury to Ortiz several sites (Boston Sports Blog and MVN) are speculating that the Red Sox might sign Bonds to fill the hole. It is not going to happens for the following reasons:

1. John Henry does not want alienate a huge part of Red Sox Nation by signing a player that is despised in Boston.

2. Ortiz could only be out for 1 month, Bonds has not played this season and would need at least a month to get in playing shape (and find a steroid supplier in Boston)

3. The Sox have plenty of young players that they could bring up that are power hitters (Moss, Van Every, Carter)

So while it makes a good headline and something to debate about, it is not going to happen.

You are right on! I heard a lot of this talk on the radio this morning and could not believe it. Papi is barely on the DL and people want to spend all that money to bring in high priced hitters like Bonds or Sosa (among other names mentioned). Why not use Manny more in the DH role and put a better outfielder in left?

We have Casey, who has been hitting well, in addition to those you mentioned.

No moves are needed for now!
