"As for the Giants, Barry Bonds' status has the team running for cover and there are those in baseball who think they have nobody to blame but themselves. It's not entirely clear, for instance, that the Giants even knew Bonds had undergone a third knee operation since the end of last season until they read it on his Web site. "It's very clear that the players, when they execute their contracts, give the club the right to direct medical care,'' Brewers assistant general manager Gord Ash told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "[Bonds' situation] is an anomaly. It's clearly beyond the entitlements the player has under the contract.''

wonder did Maggs do the same, go against his contract or was his contract up at the time
