We have previously talked about the chances of Bonds coming to Oakland here. A lot of people argued that if Harren was traded then it would be a slim chance Bonds will get signed. Well a couple days ago Harren in fact was traded. The A’s will be using the trade to rebuild with some minor leaguers and they are getting two major league outfielders. You can read more about the trade here.
It does look like Bonds probably won’t end up on the A’s. I hope I’m wrong, as I would love to see Bonds on the team. I don’t want to see the team “rebuild” this year, unless it includes Bonds. If it doesn’t, I’ll just stay home. Speaking of controversy, the A’s already have one player named in the mitchel report, which beane addressed. I personally am disgusted by this witch hunt from the balco investigation and the mitchell investigation. I know I’m not on the popular side of this issue, but I don’t think it’s the governments concern about what athletes are doing. I think it’s pretty crappy what Mitchell did, I really don’t care who used what and the only meaning of it was to smear peoples reputation.
How does everyone feel about trade and do you think Bonds has any chance of coming to Oakland now?
