Bobby Bonds’ son as a broadcaster?
Yes, Bobby Bonds did in fact have a son, one that played baseball actually.
I know, sorry to blow your mind with so much information at once. But it is better you know, rather than to go through life never having known.
Anyway, Bonds, as most of you are already aware, joined the booth during a Giants/Dodgers game last night.
And the results were…mixed?
Barry is not a likeable character. Maybe not quite as UN-likeable as say, Javier Bardem’s character in ‘No Country for Old Men.” And maybe we prefer Bonds to say, Chucky from Child’s play.
But that is understandable, right? Bonds is a better person than that of a psychopathic killer. And dolls that kill, or even talk on their own, don’t exist anyway.
But really, I could listen to Bonds talk all day about his approach as a hitter. And his opinion of other hitters’ approaches.
We are talking about a hitter that has arguably the greatest eye ever. Right up there with Ted Williams, Babe Ruth, Tony Gwynn, Robinson Cano, Mark Bellhorn, and Jeremy Giambi.
Sorry, I sort of got off topic there…
But my point is, when Bonds talks baseball, I am fine with it. Especially the hitting part.
But how often will he get off subject? How often will he annoy and rub viewers the wrong way?
Probably often enough. Maybe worth a try, though.
But the likelihood it even happens, seems to be slim.
