The San Francisco Giants have recently signed pitcher Boof Bonser to a minor league deal. Bonser was drafted by the Giants in the 1st round of the 2000 draft. He was later traded away to the Twins in a package deal. Boof has been kind enough to do a short Q&A with SF Giants Rumors.
Steven: It’s got to feel like your career has come full circle since you were drafted by the Giants and have signed back with the Giants organization. Giants fans remember the big trade that sent you as part of a package deal with Joe Nathan and Francisco Liriano to the Twins for A.J. Pierzynski. What is your relationship like with Nathan and Liriano since you guys were all Giants prospects?
Boof: I have a good friendship with Nathan and Liriano.
Steven: Do you have any personal goals this upcoming season?
Boof: My goals are to get back in the big leagues and to stay healthy.
Steven: Are you hoping to try and crack the starting rotation or be a long man in relief?
Boof: It doesn’t matter if I start or in relief, I will do whatever they want me to do.
Steven: What has your typical offseason day been like?
Boof: I have been just rehabbing trying to get ready for the season, and when I get home I play with my kids.
Steven: If you weren’t a baseball player. What would you be doing?
Boof: I don’t know what I would do if I wasn’t in baseball, hopefully I could coach or something. As long as I’m in baseball, I’m ok.
Steven: Is there any teams that you follow as a fan in other sports?
Boof: Man, it is tough to say but I’m a Tampa Bay Bucs fan. It’s been a rough year.
Steven: Any message you want to send to Giants fans?
Boof: To my Giants fans, I’m very excited to be back, and you can follow me on twitter @boofbonser1.
Thank you Boof for taking the time out of your day to answer these questions for all the Giants fans. I would like to wish you the best of luck on this upcoming season!
