Zito: Players Will Be More Themselves Without Bonds

San Francisco Chronicle - During Barry Bonds' entire career in San Francisco, he owned the clubhouse.

Barry Zito said some players were not "comfortable in their own skin" around Bonds, himself included.

"I'm excited," Zito said, "because people will be allowed to be who they want to be, not who they think they have to be because there is such a heavy presence in the clubhouse, such a superstar player."
Well this isn't surprising news to everyone, I just hate when players really think high of themselves, especially around their own teamates.

I actually think Zito is right. Now maybe they can finally play some ball without all the steroid talk/home run chase. But I agree with you MJ, I don't like when players(Zito) think highly of themselves around their teammates.
