ALLEGED SYRINGE NOTHING BUT A BASTER
Barry Bonds is adding the fans to the list of people he's belligerent with on a daily basis.
When he labeled the object thrown on the field during yesterday's opening day in San Diego a "syringe" it became a potential buzzword for fans as a whole as out of control.
Except, it wasn't a syringe with the imagery of a thin, sharp needle, nor was it the turkey baster that Padres GM Sandy Alderson called it, but something along the lines of a device used to irrigate a wound or dental work.
Along with the numerous funny and bizarre signs and the angry boos, the syringe toss is a bad omen for things to come.
The intense heat of the steroid scandal and Bonds's march to 714 (and 755) is going to hurt him way before his elderly athletics body does.
Earlier, today, the Associated Press reported that Bonds's aunt, former Olympian, Rosie Kriedler was recently living out of her car and now living with public assistance. Whether Bonds knew of this and offer no help is of no consequence, but likely to get more personal and instrusive.
