Post-Game 92 Thread: July 15 @ Giants


From "Bonds hitless in series as Dodgers sweep Giants" (AP/

Barry Bonds flipped a laundry cart to the ground and stalked away.

Calling himself an "embarrassment" and mired in one of the worst slumps of his career, it was his hardest hit of the day.

Bonds had a second straight 0-for-5 performance to extend his hitless stretch to a season-worst 20 at-bats, and his San Francisco Giants lost their 11th in a row at home to the rival Los Angeles Dodgers, 5-3 on Sunday.

"It's an embarrassment for me to be wearing this [expletive deleted] uniform 'cause of the way I'm playing. There, that's it. Now go away," Bonds said at his locker.

Then he overturned the cart as he walked through the clubhouse, a rare public display of emotion with his chase of Hank Aaron's home run record at a standstill. He's been at 751 homers and four from tying the Hammer since July 3.

I've come to the sad conclusion that Bonds eventually breaks 755. But it would be nice if he didn't get it vs. the Dodgers.

Amazing, that we were able to hold Barroids in check in front of his home crowd. I've seen Barry kill us so many times that I have to admit I was a little shocked at his lines, as well as the sweep!

I'm psyched taht we shut Barry down! Disappointed? Not at all.

And I am indeed PROUD to wear this SoSG uniform, unlike Barry in his comments.

Now go away.
