Barry Bonds, 43 will not return to San Francisco next season, ending a 15 year as a Giant.
“It’s always difficult to say goodbye,” Giants owner Peter Magowan said Friday. “It’s an emotional time for me. We’ve been through a lot together these 15 years. A lot of good things have happened. Unfortunately a lot of bad things have happened. But there comes a time when you have to go in a different direction.”
As of now he’s batting .279 with 66 RBIs, 132 walks, 28 homeruns. With 8 games left of the schedule, weekend series with Cincinnati Reds, 24-26th with the San Diego Padres and the last three weekend series at Los Angeles Dodgers, this will be the only time we see Bonds in a Giants uniform.
