A second act of Bonds' baseball career appears to be starting now in Miami as a coach of all things. The man is certainly a well regarded hitter but there is that nasty long-running rumor about PED use and connections to BALCO that might concern the average baseball fan. Mattingly has a history of working with suspected steroid users as hitting coaches with his tenure involving Mark McGwire and the Dodgers. We will all have to see how this works out but there is no doubt that he has a wealth of knowledge he can give. Analysis: Matt Selz
