It was suggested yesterday that the Cardinals had a little bit of interest in free agent Barry Bonds. Not so, according to Bernie Miklasz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Miklasz was told a while back by team owner Bill DeWitt that it wasn’t happening.
However, Susan Slusser’s article this morning indicates the A’s will consider signing Bonds. Billy Beane recently indicated he was leaning toward playing to win in ’08, so Bonds makes sense. Slusser talked to a Major League exec who said he’d be shocked if it didn’t happen.
Slusser’s industry source says two other teams have expressed interest, and Bonds’ agent said he’s talking to teams from both leagues. Any guesses? It’s known that the Rangers, Twins, Mariners, and Tigers aren’t interested.
