I know I'm not the first to mention this, but given our offensive ineptitude, it bears repeat mentioning:
Barry Bonds, the greatest hitter of all time, is available.
Hafner is showing signs of waking up and with Ben Francisco plugging along, there is one less outfield spot available. Bonds is not a guy's guy and Eric Wedge won't give the time of day to anybody who won't go for a steam with him. Third dumb argument blah blah blah.
The Indians need to be exploring ways to jump start the offense and reaching out the Bonds definitely falls into the scope of due diligence in that respect. I know we're not throwing a ton of money at him. I don't care that he might not be fan friendly. But he can hit, and he might just be willing to do it on the cheap for a team with a shot at a ring. Shapiro is obligated to make that call to Jeff Borris if nothing else.
