Giants to Bonds: You're Out!

The San Francisco Giants have announced that they will not bring back all-time home run king Barry Bonds for the 2008 season, ending his 15-year stay with the Giants.

Bonds, 43, has said on his website that he plans to continue playing somewhere else, in order to reach his goal of obtaining a World Series ring.

Considering his age, Bonds has been productive this season, hitting .279 with 28 home runs and 66 RBIs. Unfortunately, he can no longer play left field effectively, which means that he would probably have to go somewhere in the American League where he can DH.

Whichever team ends up with him, they are going to be getting a steal. Bonds is an outstanding hitter, regardless of whether or not he took steroids. I wish him the best of luck as he approaches the 3,000 hit mark next season.
