Hey, Have you Heard that Bonds did Steroids? No, no, Seriously!

by SonDog

It's an amazing thing, being a San Francisco Giants fan. Everybody hates your team. Well, maybe that's a little bit of an overstatement. Maybe it's more like, everybody hates your best player -- even Girl Scouts. Although I've noticed in recent years that, since the Giants have let Bonds run roughshod over the organization like a Bush administration official at a UN meeting, most fans now hate the Giants too. It's kind of like being a fan of the Yankees or a fan of the Red Sox, I presume. The exception, of course, is that if you're a fan of the Yankees or the Red Sox, your teams at least win.

With the Sacramento Kings organization exploding this year like the Hindenburg (prediction: Geoff Petrie walks this off-season and ends up as Portland's GM. More on this in a later post.), I have been able to focus most of my attention on the Giants and their outlook for 2007. Last year I put together a list called "The Indispensables," to preview the season. This year, in honor of Kissing Suzy Kolber's weekly theme, I've decided to do a mock-draft (picking players that are the most important to the least important to the teams success) with the erstwhile BH. Yes, BH is back. For those of you wondering, he's been on the Injured Reserve with a crippling case of carpel tunnel syndrome, crossed with a violent outbreak of hemorrhoids. Tragic.

I might have to get 2k7. Remember the original Nintendo baseball? Those sounds effects are still in my head. Who knew a fly ball sounded like a flute doing scales?
