The two men unable to agree on who owned Barry Bonds' 73rd home run ball now can't agree on how to sell it. That leaves the record ball still locked in legal limbo. A judge ruled last month neither should get it outright - Alex Popov gloved the ball for an instant and Patrick Hayashi ended up with it. Now the only thing the men can agree on is to postpone a court order that requires them to unload the ball and split the money, perhaps $1 million. Under Judge Kevin McCarthy's order, Popov, Hayashi and their lawyers were to meet with Judge Richard Kramer and sort out the details of the sale by Dec. 30. That deadline came and went.
