NEW YORK (AP) -Barry Bonds thinks he has been unfairly targeted for whatever problems baseball has had with the use of performance-enhancing drugs.
``I truly believe I have been singled out. Definitely,'' he said during an interview aired Friday by MSNBC.
Seeking a new team after 15 seasons with his hometown San Francisco Giants, the 43-year-old left fielder said he wouldn't be a problem for any team that chooses to sign him.
``I don't bring baggage to a team,'' he said. ``I've never brought any baggage to a team. I've brought my baseball bag, but I don't bring any baggage. I go on the field and I play.''
San Francisco chose not to make an effort to re-sign the home run king, who with 762 homers has topped Hank Aaron's old mark of 755. The seven-time NL MVP hit .276 with 28 homers and 66 RBIs.
Bonds would have preferred to remain with the Giants.
``I was disappointed in the way it was handled,'' Bonds said. ``And what I mean by that is that San Francisco are not my fans. San Francisco is my family and I felt that ... they took away our time to enjoy. ... I think we deserved more than that.''
