If you are looking for an interpretation of the question, I would go so far as to say that "Run or fun?" means either "Run" since Barry Bonds would NOT make a good choice for the next James Bond figure (typically this character is suave, debonaire, charming, ultra-intelligent, willing to put himself in harm's way for others, and armed with the latest gadgets to escape whatever sticky spot in which he may find himself) or "Fun" if you think Barry Bonds would be the perfect choice to give the character of James Bond a quirky and fun quality that perhaps, in years past, he has been missing.
Most people will agree that "Run" or "Fun" applies depending on your personal liking for Barry Bonds. My vote, however, would be for "Run". While Barry is definitely physically strong, fit, and handsome, he does not possess many of the above qualities which would make him an ideal 007. Barry used illegal substances to enhance his performance, and then he lied about it repeatedly. He is not what I would consider a "hero" who would act for the better good of humanity and society, a quality that James Bond should possess. Barry Bonds is also very much about the money and his own personal gain, another quality that a James Bond figure should not possess.
