BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. -- Giants slugger Barry Bonds, looking fit and a tad trimmer, said on Saturday night that he was optimistic his problematic right knee would respond positively to the daily pounding of playing baseball again this coming season.
"It feels great right now," Bonds told MLB.com. "I'm going on vacation and then I'm going to give it a good test in January, see how it reacts. The soreness is gone. It's not bothering me every day like it did this past season. Who knows? I could fall down and be back at square one again. That's why I don't like to look too far ahead. But if I go into Spring Training the way things are right now, it'll be pretty good."
Personally, I don't know why Bonds pushed himself so far last season. He wasn't ready for baseball. However, the only reason I think he came back is because he really thought he'd make a difference in the last month of the regular season. That and I think he had talked to my hype about coming back, that if he didn't the media would of got to him about it.
What do you think about Bonds next year? Do you think he'll live up to his promises for the World Baseball Classic?
