I just came from the psych ward

Now back to the Redbirds.

Call me crazy, but the more I think about it, the more I wonder, how bad would it really be to sign Barry Bonds? Now hear me out. He wouldn't have to play every day (or rather couldn't), but he could easily be a bench player and provide some power in a pinch-hitting situation. He isn't the worst outfielder, either, if he got a couple starts. Plus, and here's what keeps drawing me back in: he's super cheap. Like league minimum cheap. Tony's been heard once or twice suggesting it, and I'm just thinking out loud here. I know he's not the most popular player, but he's Barry Bonds for pete's sake. He's like Chris Duncan with a few minor modifications (and a real cervical disc).

Tell me if I'm totally off in outer space.
