MLB Rumors: Barry Bonds Looking to Work for San Francisco Giants?

Barry Bonds hasn't played in the MLB since 2007. He never really retired, as he continued a search for teams looking to sign him after the San Francisco Giants decided not to take him back.

The home-runs leader found nobody and has been in court a while ago for steroids. Now Bonds is planning to get back into baseball, as he wants to work for the Giants again.


Perhaps most intriguing, though, is Bonds' revelation that he has talked with Giants President and CEO Larry Baer about re-joining the club, perhaps as a roving instructor, of some sort, "helping major leaguers (and) minor leaguers" in the Giants' organization.

"My expertise is baseball," he said.

"If you believe that I can contribute and help the organization, then fine. If you don't, fine. I'm just saying it's out there."

Bonds will be up for a Hall of Fame ballot as well this year. We'll see how that goes.
