ESPN.com reports Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim RP Jason Christiansen denied the reports that he and San Francisco Giants OF Barry Bonds got in a fight earlier this season. He said he gets along well with Bonds and wished these things weren't being said when Bonds is about to make his return. However, this contradicts what he said when he was traded to the Angels just weeks ago, saying he wanted to get away from Bonds. "It's good to get out of there," Christiansen said. "You pitch a good game and they come over and they ask, 'Hey, did you guys miss Barry today?' I mean, life goes on without that guy coming out to the ballpark. Over the last five months of the season, we probably saw him for a total of maybe 20 days, so it was tough to answer questions about somebody you don't know anything about - unless you go onto his Web site."

The Associated Press reports a player from the San Francisco Giants told them OF Barry Bonds got in a fight with former Giants RP Jason Christiansen in the clubhouse lunchroom at SBC Park earlier this season in a dispute over one of Bonds' trainers. The player, who witnessed the June altercation but spoke on condition of anonymity because he did not want to talk publicly about an incident between other players, said Christiansen was frustrated with Harvey Shields, Bonds' personal stretch man now employed by the team. "I don't think punches were thrown," the player said. "It was more grabbing. It was regarding one of Bonds' trainers, Harvey."
