Bonds is the Terminator: He'll be back

ESPN is reporting that the Giants have called a news conference for later this afternoon, in which they will announce that they have guaranteed Barry Bonds's contract for the next two years. That move should keep the slugger in San Francisco for the remainder of his Hall of Fame career.

The Giants hold an option to void the last year of Bonds's current deal, which runs through the 2006 season, if he failed to make 500 plate appearances in 2005. Apparently, the ownership group has decided to tear up that option.

To which I can only say, it's about time.

This isn't rocket science, folks. Barry Bonds is the San Francisco Giants. And you'd let him shatter the home run record in Yankee pinstripes, or Dodger blue? I don't think so.
