whats up with this?

 

Barry Bonds was removed from tonight's game after seven innings, and manager Felipe Alou refused to give an explanation following the game.

Asked if Bonds had requested to come out, Alou said: "I don't have an answer to that question. That's in the team. I don't have to explain that." Something significant must have happened. If not, Alou would have had no reason to withhold the info. Aug. 12 - 11:37 pm et

The Giants were up 7-0 and Jason Schmidt was cruising. There is absolutely no need for him to be in there for the 8th and 9th inning in a game like that... Barry is the best, but he's getting old. He needs all the time off he can take.

yeah...its not like its uncommon practice to pull a 41-year-old from a blowout and send in a "defensive replacement" for the 8th and 9th innings.

 

i'm thinkin barry asked to be pulled and perhaps felipe just didn't want to admit it to the press considering what happened when he suggested that schmidty didnt want to start on 3 days rest during the NLDS.
