Barry Bonds is open to making a comeback. Whether any team wants him, that's the tricky part.
Now that Bonds' federal trial has been delayed at least until
July, the agent for baseball's home run king plans to contact all
30 major league clubs once again to determine whether there's a
place for the slugger.
Agent Jeff Borris says he's not optimistic that he'll be able to
find a team for Bonds. The 44-year-old Bonds last played in 2007
with the San Francisco Giants. Tampa Bay toyed with the idea of
signing Bonds for 2008, but he sat out while under indictment for
lying to a federal grand jury when he testified he never knowingly
used performance-enhancing drugs. Bonds has pleaded not guilty.
