Barry Bonds has rejoined the San Francisco Giants this year as a special hitting instructor. Judging by his new physical build, it seems unlikely that he will be taking part in any bench press competitions.
Skinny Barry arrived at Giants’ camp on Monday looking nothing like the home run record holder who last played an MLB game in 2007. Bonds looks like he has dropped about 10 inches on his waistline and four fitted hat sizes. Seriously, whose neck is this?

We knew Bonds had taken up cycling as a hobby and slimmed down quite a bit in retirement, but it is still bizarre to see him walking around a baseball field looking like an average-sized dude. I wonder if Barry and CC Sabathia have been dieting together.
