Bonds Indicted

If I have Barry Bonds home run ball number 762, I am walking on air today.

Bonds was finally indicted on federal perjury and obstruction of justice in connection with his BALCO testimony. It is almost a foregone conclusion, then, that no team will take a flyer on him at least at the beginning of 2008. If he does any time, he may have to sit out 2008 altogether.

So MLB might have the luxury of killing two birds with one stone. They are nervous that the 756 ball they receive will be branded with an asterisk. That's not something they want on display. But why bother displaying 756 when the new total is 762? That would be kind of silly. They might as well put 762 on display.

Gee. I wonder why San Francisco didn't want to resign Barry.
