Blah Blah Bonds

Barry Bonds may be looking for $100 million or more from MLB if an arbitrator decides baseball owners conspired to end his career. Why such a large number? According to the terms of the collective bargaining agreement, a player is allowed triple in damages from lost earnings if the reason he did not play was shady enough.

Yes, Barry was bad for baseball. Yes, it became incredibly irritating to see his ugly mug plastered all over the internet and television while he chased Hank Aaron's homer record and after he was indicted on charges of perjury.

But did owners collude to have him blackballed? Even though Bonds was not offered a contract after the 2007 season, he never officially retired. His agent, Jeff Borris even shopped Bonds at the big league minimum of $390,000 and still drew no interest. At one point he somewhat jokingly offered to play for charity. Still crickets.

Thoughts?

He's a cheater and an asshole, but I n't think ALL OF THE OWNERS IN ALL OF BASEBALL got together and decided to blackball him. They did it individually, which makes it their preference, which makes it totally legal.
