Controversial home run king Barry Bonds isn't best known for his media savvy, but he had a lot to say while attending a San Francisco Giants game on Monday.
The former slugger, who was convicted of obstruction of justice in April 2011, told reporters that he has talked to the Giants about working for the club. He said he recently met with Giants President and CEO Larry Baer regarding a potential position with the franchise.
He has a personal-services contract with the team that could go into effect once his legal troubles are over.
Bonds, 47, is in the process of appealing his conviction and said he's eager to move on with his life, which he hopes will include a future in baseball. However, he admits it's been tough dealing with accusations regarding his alleged steroid use.
"I gave my life and soul to that game. That's what's heartbreaking. That's the hard part of it," Bonds said. "My [reputation] was kind of iffy anyway. I created that guy out there for entertainment only. Whether you hated me or liked me, you were there. And I only wanted you there. I just wanted you to see the show. That was it.
