Oh, this won't turn out well.

Might be worth following. Dick Allen has a good Twitter account. Pete Rose OTOH tends to tweet anniversaries of his milestone hits. Bonds has always struck me as a thoughtful guy with a sense of humor and varied interests, good ingredients for Twitter.

So far I have learned that Barry misses Joan Rivers. And likes some restaurant. Maybe #2 was premature.

I'm setting the over/under on when Barry deletes his account because of all the flack from the hataz at 30 days.

Interesting that he has @barrybonds. I wonder if he was sitting on it all this time or if he had to buy it from a squatter.

[3] And that he's friends with Dexter Fowler (or at least was eating dinner with him tonight)

I'm waiting for the day his tweets are mysteriously enhanced from 140 characters to 220.

That's what she said.

Can't wait for McGwire and Sosa to start buying Twitter followers, far surpassing Bonds and enraging him enough to up the ante - thereby setting him up to break all Twitter records before he is finally caught and winds up without a social media gig.

McGwire will bounce back, asking not to dwell on the past, but Sosa's Twitter translator will lead to him having far less success in the post-Twitter universe.

I think I read this Greek play before in college.

Johnny Bench's tweets make me chuckle. They're like the missives from someone even older than he is (66).

His cover photo is cut off (so you can't know for sure), but i'm thinking he's holding Bud Selig's tiny balls between the thumb and forefinger of his left hand - anyone else seeing that?

Barry Bonds murdered Joan Rivers?


Silly boy, he missed her, he didn't hit her. Attempted murder at worst.

Barry Bonds murdered Joan Rivers?


If his rookie Pittsburgh hat still fits, you must acquit.....

His cover photo is cut off (so you can't know for sure)


Head wouldn't fit in the frame?

I thought it was he did not knowingly kill her, so manslaughter at worst.

Barry Bonds murdered Joan Rivers?


He's never denied it.

Does Twitter have an option to limit who can respond to your tweets? Random strangers sure are ragging on him hard about steroids.

You shut your overrated mouth. RT @DentonCyYoung: @OldHossRadbourn You were 10 years old in 1864, you lying sod.

Cy Young @DentonCyYoung · 4h
.@OldHossRadbourn You know what's overrated? Pitchers who threw underhanded...of course that was consistent with your business dealings.
