    Sexson signs with Yankees

    http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=3493648

    Why would he sign with the Yankees? He couldn't deal with all the booing in Seattle. New York's ten times as worse. Is he gonna go to the bench and cry when he starts getting booed again in New York?

    Or A-Rod decided he'd give the big Sexy a few millions to take some of the heat off of him

    Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are .

    There will be low expectations for Sexon, so the fans will probably leave him alone.

    He gives them more right-handed power, especially against lefties.

    Prorated $390,000 will be under $200,000. A completely different decision than signing Bonds would be, and certainly wouldn't preclude them from later signing Barry if they did want to.

    Well, by now Bonds will probably have to accept the minimum salary if he wants to play. Also, Bonds is better than Sexson.

    Bonds has already offered to play for the minimum salary.

    That Richie Sexson can get signed is just more evidence in support of collusion. Sexson hasn't hit in two years, sucks defensively, isn't well-liked, has had actual on-field incidents like the helmet-throwing nonsense...and he can get a contract. Barry Bonds who can OBP .450 and hit 20 homers...can't.

    Bonds is far more trouble than he's worth, even at minimum.

    I mean it. He's death to any contending team, and I'm not talking about the steroids or questions about character. Well, not directly.

    The second he puts on a uniform, that team will be deluged with reporters from every two-bit hole in the ground in this country and probably every other. The questions will be fast, furious and designed to provoke. That team will literally become the Barry Bonds show.

    Don't believe me? Take a look at the '78 Yanks. They FINALLY got their act together (obviously) but the first half was chaos due to controversy surrounding manager Billy Martin and outfielder Reggie Jackson. Both spurred it on: Martin couldn't control his mouth, and Jackson kept reminding everyone he was the greatest even when he was demoted to seventh. Only under a new, much quieter manager (Bob Lemon) who simply didn't use Reggie when he was feeling...recalcitrant...did the Yanks get their house in order and take the Series.

    Bonds, just by virtue of his (in)famy, would throw clubhouse chemistry out the window. I'm a big fan of stats, Houston, but they really do overlook the human factor. His new team, through no fault of their own (or even Bonds'), would go through the floor.

    I don't buy the case for collusion. Collusion would have been the Giants releasing him on August 1, 2007 and THEN no one signing him.

    I think every GM in the league's reached the same conclusion I have. Bonds is simply the kiss of death.

    I wouldn't bet on that. Bonds is still a wrecking ball at the plate. He can't field a lick and his knees are so bad he can't run worth a ****, but hes still capable of .280/.450/.500 with at least 20 homers.
