  • Larry Walker of the Colorado Rockies has never been the most durable of players. In fact, he has managed to appear in over 140 games just three times in the twelve years of his career that was possible. Now that he's 36, he must be all the more cautious about conditioning and stretching, writes Troy E. Renck in a profile in today's Denver Post.

  • Barry Bonds is coming to Veteran's Stadium for the last time this weekend and he will miss it, writes Marcus Hayes of the Philadelphia Daily News. He's piled up some great stats there, but then, he's done that everywhere.
