Barry Bonds hasn't played in the MLB since 2007. He never really retired from the sport of baseball, he just couldn't find anyone who would sign him after the San Francisco Giants decided not to take him back.
The home-runs leader ultimately found no takers and, mostly, has just filled his spare time with steroid-related court cases and laying low.
Now Bonds is apparently planning to get back into baseball.
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 all this goes.
