Suppose Pat Burrell Has a Season-Ending Injury

Would you sign Barry Bonds?

If the answer's no, why not?

He'd be on his best behavior, he'll give you six good weeks between mid-August and September 30, and he can flat-out hit the baseball, even now, especially when you consider other available alternatives.

I still don't understand why MLB teams haven't pursued Bonds. I'm no huge fan, but given the accelerated level of forgiveness in the sport, why shouldn't Barry get signed? He can't be any more higher maintenance than Manny Ramirez, and while Manny has played all year and therefore is in (much) better baseball shape, you have to believe that Bonds still has enough left in him to scare the living daylights out of the average National League pitcher, especially one who is facing the pressures of a pennant race.

What do you think?
