08:12 AM ET 05.29 | Barry Bonds is back -- well, sort of. A significantly slimmer [Bonds] made his first appearance of the 2012 season at AT&T Park Monday, and the Home Run King held court with a handful of reporters for about 35 minutes outside the Giants clubhouse, answering every question with direct eye contact and, sometimes, deep-throated laughs. It was a 180-degree turn from his time as an active player. ... 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.

The key question is are the Giants talking back?

Fresno. That's where he belongs. With the Fresno Grizzlies in a rats-**** town.

I thought his expertise was steroids and being an arsehole...

Does he still wear a size 13 ball cap?

At least McGwire and Rose copped to their indiscretions, this guy is just a plain 'ol scumbag!!!

I think he has to come clean like McGwire did before MLB would be okay with employing him.

I seen him yesterday on the Giants telecast and he look a whole lot thinner. He is probably clean down talk another test and if clean I don;t see anything wrong of getting back in baseball.

When did McGwire admit to being a rampant juicer? Did I miss something?

In an interview with Bob Costas I think.

That SOB could teach the kids HOW TO CHEAT and do STEROIDS and lie.This shows the gaints are a classes team.Now rays are not the scum team in MLB.This rates with the black sox of the 1919 but the white sox still should be called the black sox.

He came clean before the Cardinals hired him as hitting coach.

I am sure he has something to offer, so I would think the Giants should be at least interested in talking to him. You have to give people a chance to redeem themselves.
