From the Sacramento Bee, comes this item on the possibility of a Barry Bond statute outside of AT&T Park:
Does Bonds deserve to be immortalized with a statue of his likeness – his arms raised as he watches home run No. 756 sail over the center-field wall? Should he join other Giants greats – Willie Mays, Willie McCovey, Juan Marichal and Orlando Cepeda – who have statues?
Others will say none of that matters; he provided them with memories that will last a lifetime. Besides, how can the Giants not honor a Bay Area son who is baseball's all-time home run king (wink, wink)?
Though the Giants benefited from Bonds' home run era, they are in no hurry to decide on a statue, and they will continue to keep a polite distance from their former star for now.
The Giants most likely will wait to see if Bonds is elected into the Hall of Fame in his first ballot later this year. If he is, it's just a matter of time before a statue is unveiled.
Why not put a bronze Bonds outside the park? Maybe a statue of Bonds holding a syringe? Or Bonds with gynecomastia from 'roiding? How would you pose Bods to immortalize the career home-run leader?
