Red Sox considering Bonds....

Last not during ESPN's telecast of the Sox/Yanks game, Peter Gammons mentioned that the Sox had internal discussions about the possibility of signing Bonds.  He said he didnt know how likely it would be given the Boston area, and how accepting they would be of this.

Frankly, this scares the hell out of me.  If Ortiz doesnt come back, which is a decent possibility, I could see the Sox making this move.  A health, well rested, Bonds in that lineup would be difficult to overcome.  I know there are some on this board that have advocated signing Bonds....I would say now, more then ever, the Rays need to consider this, if only to keep him out of Boston's lineup(and making our's far better).

From a PR standpoint, I can see all the negative publicity.  The clubhouse cancer aspect is not even plausible in my mind.  The Giants were in contention every season with this "cancer".  Bonds also knows this is his last shot, so he'd have to be on his best behavior.

I know it isnt likely, but this is a move the Rays MUST consider.
