SAN FRANCISCO, CA — The world watched, waited, and griped, but Barry Bonds couldn’t tie Ruth during the Giants’ homestand last week. Before leaving on the team’s next road trip to Houston, the media sought answers for the dry spell.
“I’m late guys. I gotta go,” Bonds told reporters on Sunday night. “The bus leaves in five minutes.” He refused to speak further about his freakish world of “buses” and “travel,” leaving the journalists to their usual idle conjecture.
