LIFE LESSONS

Last month Barry Bonds was talking about how much he picked up watching David Eckstein play when they toured Japan together last fall. Today, Peter Gammons has a column on the story:


"He's one of my favorite players ever," Bonds said. "I told him that he's a gift from God. Everything is difficult for him, yet he gets it done and done well."

..."He sat around with me and a lot of the guys for hours almost every day, talking baseball and teaching," Eckstein said. "He never stops learning."

Like Buck O'Neil recently told Bronx Banter: "When you stop learning, you're through."

And they say Barry Bonds isn't a role model.

Bullshit.
