I hope no one signs him. I'd love to see this guy taught a lesson. But we all know that's not going to happen.
You don't see too may superstar/manager confrontations anymore. A memorable one was Jim Leyland and the aforementioned Mr. Bonds in Spring Training back in the early 90s. Perhaps that's why Alou wasn't brought back although the Giants seem to do their fair share of coddling Barry as well. Fines to these guys mean nothing. Maybe Alou didn't confront Bonds because he didn't want to. Maybe he was afraid of the reaction he thought he'd get from him.
