WTF? Bonds refuses to sign contract

This is getting to be ridiculous.

According to an AP story just posted on SFGate, Barry Bonds is refusing to sign the contract with the Giants that they said twice now was all done. They went so far as to have a Monday night press conference announcing the signing.

Now it seems Major League Baseball rejected a clause in the agreed-upon contract having to do with “personal appeareances” — lucrative appeareances at banquets, baseball card signing events, and other promotional hoo-ha that can mean tens of thousands of dollars for athletes. And without the personal appearance clause, Bonds is balking.

Man, would I hate to be a flunky in the Giants’ offices right now, and have to listen to the outraged screaming.
