Well the A’s have had a dissapointing season plagued with injuries. It’s time to wrap up my writing for this season, by talking about the hottest potential free agent on the market this year for the A’s. I know some may not want Bonds to go to Oakland, but as a bay area baseball fan, I would love to see him come over and DH. Oakland had talks with Bonds last year and the GM has said they would sign anyone if it was for the right price.
The question is, will Bonds want to take a paycut to go to Oakland? I don’t know, it would depend on the demand and how bad Bonds wants to play. I don’t think Bonds wants to take a paycut, but I do know he is eager to stay in the game as Bonds is one of the most determined ball players ever.
Bonds could prove useful for leading A’s relatively young and inexperienced hitters. When Thomas came on the team 2 years ago he helped get them to the playoffs. I believe Bonds could fill the same role and help get them to the playoffs again. I say overall it’s probably less than a 25% chance we’ll see him on the A’s. He might retire and just say screw it since he is off his Giants, or wind up on a long A.L struggling team like the Royals or Devil Rays.
Well, thanks for reading my A’s blog and I wish you the best of luck. I hope you will visit this blog again, when I resume blogging next spring. Feel free to continue to leave comments on any of my blog posts.
