Bonds agrees to deal, stays with Giants

NEW YORK (AP) - Barry Bonds (http://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/player/85852) and the San Francisco Giants (http://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/team/71612) reached agreement on a $16 million, one-year contract Thursday night that will keep the controversial slugger in the Bay Area to take aim at baseball's home run record.

The deal includes four performance bonuses that could make the pact worth a total of $20 million, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press, speaking on condition of anonymity because there had been no official announcement.

While Oakland, San Diego, St. Louis and other teams showed interest in signing the 42-year-old free agent, the Giants (http://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/team/71612) had been considered the front-runners to re-sign their star.
Bonds has 734 home runs and is 22 from breaking Hank Aaron's career record. He has played 14 seasons for the Giants (http://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/team/71612) and is coming off a $90 million, five-year contract.
