I didn't put much stock into the site's "confidential clubhouse source" and that was before my Y! Sports colleague Tim Brown backed up my hunch with good evidence.While sniffing out the report's validity (or lack thereof), Brown was told by Bonds' agent Jeff Borris that the rumor was "not true." Furthermore, it appears that the league remains united in turning its back to the Home Run King. "IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m not in negotiations with the Yankees," Borris told Yahoo! Sports. "IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m not in negotiations with anybody.Ã¢â‚¬ÂBut while the Yankees might not be interested in bringing Bonds and creating a circus in the Bronx Zoo, a high-level Yankees source told Brown that signing Richie Sexson, who was released by the Mariners last week, was imminent. ESPN's Buster Olney is reporting that Sexson-to-the-Yankees is a done deal, so it appears that Bonds remains free to be second half rumor-fodder for at least a little while longer.Might it be time to fire up The Barry Bonds Job Watch series again?
