Barry Bonds…future American League DH

It’s like Willie Mays all over again…The Giants decided to part ways with Barry Bonds yesterday.  Giants owner Peter Magowan had a 90-minute with Bonds, before later informing the media that the Giants (67-87, 20 GB) would be going in a different direction in 2008.

Bonds himself said he was saddened, but respected the decision.  His blog entry on the topic can be read here.

So, what’s next for the homerun king?  It almost has to be a job as a DH in the American League.  Bonds will be 44 next season and as he’s already shown numerous times this season, his mobility in the field, and on the base paths is limited (at times during this year especially, he’s almost been a defensive liability).

I look for Bonds to go to Oakland and play a year or two, even though the Oakland DH position is crowded (Piazza, Cust) the A’s need some more power, with Cust leading the team with 25 home runs.  Other rumored suitors?  The Angels and the Rangers.

Bonds, who is the midst of a 1-year $16 million deal with the Giants, will probably have a similar contract, with maybe a slightly lower price tag, with is new team.  Barry Bonds is represented by Jeff Borris, of the Beverly Hills Sports Council.  They don’t seem to have a website, but their address can be found here.

Looking for something to do? go read about Barry Bonds’ 756th home run ball…and how it might be headed into space.
