The Marlins are looking at hiring Barry Bonds as a coach.
As far as I’m aware, this is the first serious employment offer Bonds has drawn as either a coach or a player since his semi-forcible retirement after the 2007 season.
He cleared all criminal charges, of course, and never failed an official PEDs test. Nonetheless, I do wonder if Commissioner Corleone, Rob Manfred, won’t be picking up a hotline to Miami sometime soon.
Update, Dec. 4: It’s now official.
