10:57 AM ET 02.23 | Barry Bonds is scheduled to return to the Giants from March 9-17 as a special instructor for the organization's young hitters, as first reported by this newspaper. Bonds has long wanted to take on a more active role with the organization, but the two sides have not been connected in an official capacity since 2007, Bonds' last major league season. The years since have been filled with performance-enhancing drug allegations, a perjury trial and a felony conviction for obstruction of justice, but the Giants are not worried about Bonds being a distraction.

clearly you don't comprehend,the guy is not playing baseball he would act and be there as a instructor and as a baseball mentor to the hitters,if the hitters get better positive results in their hitting and avg
the feed back from Bonds would had done part of the job,learning proccess takes long hours of work,
but a little experience imformation won't hurt!!

But it is straying onto alacran's turf.

Incredibly poor PR judgement by Giants' management.
May undermine their support both publicly and among other owners resisting the A's trying to move to San Jose.

Yeah. It will probably be a repeat of the throngs of protesters who showed up when Mark McGwire was named hitting coach.

Oh, wait.... No one cared? No one is going to care that Bonds is spending a week at Spring Training either.

That's exactly what I was thinking, champ. Bonds was an amazing hitter with and without PEDs and I'm sure he's got knowledge that would help young hitters.

Hall of Fame before he started using. Probably top ten HOF before he started using.
