I'm sure plenty of teams would love to overpay for his production simply for the revenue the Aaron chase will generate. I would be overjoyed if the Royals would drop $13 or $14 million a year for the next 2 years on him.
Bury me a Royal.

He will be a Angel I'd put money on it to. Vlad could use him to,

Highly doubtful as I read that Pineilla wasn't fond of taking the Giants job if Bonds was still there.

He will sign a one year deal in San Fransicso for less money. Barry knows he cannot play everyday anymore, and both sides know that he isn't going to get 15 million a year. The All Star game is in SF this year and Barry is going to go out with a bang.
This is a no brainer.
