If Barry Bonds had any credibility left whatsoever, no one would imagine questioning the 8 months it's now going to take to cure an injury that normally requires 5-6 weeks of rehab. But he doesn't, so we may question away!
So just what the hell is going on with Barry? Here's my theory; Whatever he took to bulk up the way he did for as long as he did takes a while to get out of your system. So Barry brings in his 'special' doctor (one that, by the way, is on probation until 2009) to make damn sure that Bonds doesn't return to baseball until he can pass any and all tests they're going to give him with flying colors.
Either that or he's having some sort of reaction to going off the various juices and creams and motor oils and horsepills he's on.
Whatever's going on, I think it's time for the Giants to grow a pair of balls and stand up to Bonds. The chances of him coming back and breaking any more records are pretty slim at this point, and he's doing nothing but making your franchise look foolish. No other company in the world would sit by with their thumbs up their ass while their most valuable employee screws himself up with the aid of some quack that's not on the corporate health plan.
Don't look for the sycophantic Giants fans to take the lead on this either. They'll continue to kiss his ass more than anyone hoping that he comes back and breaks Aaron's record so that they'll have something they can point to when people ask why they've been wasting their lives on this team.
I honestly believe that this whole thing will come to a head pretty soon. No one can be this guilty for this long with this much heat and scrutiny and walk away from it.
