Barry Bonds is not. Jeff Passan has some opinions.
Barry Bonds belongs in the Hall of Fame. And if he's not there by the end of today, the museum has failed at its stated mission: preserve history.— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) January 25, 2022

Great news from David Hess.
Got the news today that I’ve been “cured” and cleared for all activity! There’s a spot that we’re watching but expect to clear in a few weeks. I can’t thank everyone enough for the prayers, support, and love through this. Time to get back to work and on a mound hopefully soon pic.twitter.com/5L8P9k03Sj— David Hess (@hess_express28) January 28, 2022
Former Rays prospect Josh Sale signs with the Rangers.
The Rangers have signed OF Josh Sale to a minor league contract.— Kyle Glaser (@KyleAGlaser) January 26, 2022
Sale, 30, was the Rays first-round pick in 2010 and left baseball after the 2014 season. He returned to play for Gastonia in the partner Atlantic League in 2021 and tied for the league lead with 34 home runs.
Not baseball, but this might resonate with the nerd contingent.

From Ray legendary hit by pitch champ Brandon Guyer.
Players or parents: Do you (or your son/daughter) struggle with the fear of getting hit by a pitch? If so shoot me a DM and I'll respond back with 5 tips to help overcome that fear. Being known as 'MLB's HBP King'/‘La Piñata’ I’d say I know a thing or two when it comes to this. pic.twitter.com/RCD5srqARo— Brandon Guyer (@BrandonGuyer) January 25, 2022
Minor league coaching updates. Supervillain Winston Doom gets a promotion.
The Frontier League will use “sudden death” baseball instead of extra innings.
The @FLProBaseball has announced it will use "sudden death baseball" to settle tie games. After one extra inning if game remains tied, the home team chooses to hit or pitch. The hitting team puts a runner on 1st. 3 outs. Run scores? Hitting team wins. No runs? Pitching team wins.— JJ Cooper (@jjcoop36) January 24, 2022
This year is the 25th anniversary of “Chicks dig the long ball,” one of the greatest sports commercials of all time. Jeff Eisenberg wrote about it several years ago.
