One idea came to mind about where he might play - he did say that (of course) he wants a ring - why not go to Detroit and play alongside Mags in the outfield - maybe even DH those knees of his a bit - while playing for his old Pirates manager, Jim Leyland?
I guess some of you are even wondering whether to even post - maybe some of you can't stand the guy. Largely, I can't either, as I'm persuaded he cheated, and for a long time (and have stated pretty much to that effect here in this forum in times past). That's another topic for another day. So since Bonds wouldn't listen to me anyway as to him either fessing up or leaving the game, I figure there's no harm speculating where he might go.
It's just strange to hear all the crickets. Not even any Bonds-bashing.

Angels and Yankees seem most likely to me. He wants to win a World Series ring, and he would have a decent shot at it with either team. Angels keeps him in California (I think he even has a home in Beverly Hills), and the Yankees can play Giambi at first base and let Bonds DH. Detroit seems like it would be a good fit with Jim Leyland there, but I don't think they will be willing to offer the money the Yanks and Angels can. My guess is Bonds will end up with a one year deal worth around $10,000,000.
I don't think there are any NL teams looking for a 43 year old with bad knees to play left field.
It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems with just potatoes.
