Barry Bonds still bleeds white, black and orange for the San Francisco Giants, and he let Dave Roberts know just exactly how he feels about Roberts donning a Los Angeles Dodgers hat as their manager. At Giants manager Bruce Bochy's retirement ceremony following Sunday's game against the rival Dodgers, Bonds was there to celebrate alongside a myriad of Bochy's former Giants players, including Roberts. And yeah, Bonds chose not to tolerate insubordination.
Obviously Bonds was playing around, as he and Roberts played together on the Giants for two years. It was all smiles during that exchange, as Roberts became a member of the Giants again just for that celebration and hat toss.
Props to both teams for looking past the bitter Dodgers-Giants rivalry and allowing Bochy to receive a well-earned sendoff, sticking around long after the contest had ended to make his ceremony complete.
Plus, anytime you get Bonus Bonds action, it's a good thing.
