Giants GM: Rays should sign Bonds
Giants GM Brian Sabean has an idea for Rays counterpart Andrew Friedman - sign Barry Bonds.
Speaking on XM radio Tuesday, Sabean said "it would be smart" for the Rays to sign the controversial slugger who has been sitting out the whole season.
An excerpt of Sabean's comments, posted on the XM website:
“In a lot of ways taking this time off physically, probably in his head, made him think he could still keep on playing and I don’t doubt that from what we saw from the bat standpoint at the end of last year…I certainly think if he DH’d for somebody, even at this late juncture in the season…it doesn’t take much for him to get ready, we all saw that in spring training, after 10 at-bats he’d get bored…I think it would be smart for Tampa Bay because they are in a very unique position...as history goes with baseball with a chance to win that division against those two counterparts is pretty amazing…”
