Look, you can say you’d prefer Michael Morse to be your starting left fielder, Bruce Bochy. And maybe that’s how it’s gotta be. But it’s not like you don’t have options:
With the Giants’ longtime left-handed batting practice specialist “Cutter John” Yandle on the mound, Bonds had an extended hitting session out of view of observers on the back field at Scottsdale Stadium.
According to Yandle, Bonds hit rope after rope and on his last few swings unloaded some massive blasts into the adjoining neighborhood.
“He looked better than he did before,” Yandle said. “He’s still got the swing down.”
Bonds says he can’t run anymore. But he can hit. Again, that’s one notch above a lot of guys who will play DH and play left field this year.
