Amongst the topics discussed in yesterday's Tampa confab of Yankees' brass, was the topic of Barry Bonds. With an outfield of Brett Gardner, Justin Christian, Melky Cabrera and Bobby Abreu, Bonds' bat would certainly improve upon that group.
The question is whether Bonds is worth the baggage of public relations' hits and the re-opening of the steroids wounds inflicted by Roger Clemens, Andy Pettitte and the Mitchell Report. There does not appear to be any other issue that needs to be resolved.
Is there any other issue to resolve but the P.R. one?
