Welcome Back Mr. Bonds

Sorry for the misleading title, but just to clear the air: no, he is not playing again. The Giants are hosting a celebration for the greatest outfielders to ever wear the black, orange, and white. And Barry Bonds definitely meets the criteria. The big name (accompanied by a big creature), has not made an appearance to the fans in San Francisco since the end of last season. Now is the time for Bonds to shine once again on the field and especially to thank the fans for the support that we have given him. Of course Barry is the only one to make this decision, but the ceremony without Bonds is almost equivalent to the British Open without Tiger. I hope that I see Barry there, because he was truly one of the greatest outfielders to ever play the game.

Wow...so Bonds decided to show up after all. The closing lines to his speech were: "I haven't retired. Thank you." Perhaps he is sending a message with that.
