Baseball superstar Barry Bonds has lost his collusion case against Major League Baseball. Baseball arbitrator Frederic Horowitz has ruled in favor of MLB in the case in which Bonds claimed he couldn’t get a playing job following the 2007 season due to a concerted effort by MLB to keep him out of the game, CBS Sports has learned. Frederic Horowitz, who served as arbitrator, was also the arbitrator in the Alex Rodriguez case.
- The San Francisco Giants did not offer him a contract the next season, which was understandable given the amount of very public shit Bonds and the team has gone through.
- Bonds, with the assistance of union lawyers, tried to make the case through circumstantial evidence that MLB’s powers must have colluded against Bonds, as no free-agent players coming off an excellent year fails to get a job.
- In 2007, Barry Bonds earned $19.3 million, led the league with an OBP of .480, and hit, by his Olympian standards, a meager 28 home runs.
