 NEW YORK (AP) -Unsigned and thus far unwanted, Barry Bonds still wants to play this year.
``I'm not going to retire. I don't think that's going to happen,'' he told MLB.com Tuesday. ``I'm working out. I'm training. If my phone rings, it rings. If it don't, it don't. I have a cell phone. I have a Blackberry. They work. If something comes up, I'm sure they'll let me know. I'll come back in July if I have to. It depends on the circumstances.''
Baseball's home-run king was indicted in November on four counts of perjury and one count of obstruction of justice stemming from 2003 grand-jury testimony in which he denied knowingly using illegal performance-enhancing drugs. He pleaded innocent.
``I want to win a championship or else I want to keep trying to win a championship until there's nothing left inside me,'' Bonds said. ``I can still play.''
