I just signed up for the Free Fantasy Baseball game on MLB.com (Yes I know, but I SWEAR I can quit whenever I want to. It's just a matter of willpower.) I noticed this note thins morning:
Note: Due to contractual obligations, Barry Bonds is listed as SF Left Fielder throughout the game.
WTF? I know His Hignesss isn't part of the MLBPA and he not listed in video games, but this is a bit ridiculous. I guess since it's a game, they have to have an agreement with the MLBPA but I just found it odd that its an MLB game, through the Sporting News, and yet they can't even use his name?
I wonder if newspapers, TV, magazines and web sites get a bill from his agent any time they say his name in one of their sports stories.
