Could the San Francisco Giants be interested in Barry...?

The San Francisco Giants are right in the middle of the playoff race and are looking for a big bat to bolster their offense. Who might they be interested in? Baseball agent Jeff Borris has a suggestion.

Why not Barry Bonds?

"I know the Giants are dying for power, and they're in it. They wouldn't have to look beyond their backyard."

Bonds, who turns 45 in two weeks, has yet to officially retire from MLB, so technically he is a free-agent. The 14-time All-Star and seven-time NL MVP is currently awaiting trial after pleading not guilty to lying to a federal grand jury in December 2003 when he denied knowingly taking performance-enhancing drugs.

While Borris admits no team has formally mentioned Bonds name as a possibility, it certainly presents an intriguing option for the Giants.

San Francisco is about the only place on earth were Bonds is beloved, and as crazy as it sounds he might be worth a try for the Giants.

Bonds has been out of baseball since 2007 so who knows what kind of player he would be, but given his history I'm sure he's got something left in the tank.

Considering how bare the current market for hitters is, it's not unreasonable to assume that Bonds is one of the best hitters available. Outside of the Oakland Athletics Matt Holliday, I would say Bonds is the next best up for grabs. The Giants wouldn't  have to give up anything to get Bond's, and I'm sure to come back and prove America wrong he would come back for a reasonable salary.

In the end it's sort of a crazy outside the box idea, but at least it makes for interesting discussion.

What does everyone think? Would the Giants be crazy to bring back Barry Bonds?
