    No big surprise here. You wonder what this will do to the accusations surrounding Bonds...

    I would think if the paper could get Giamibi's testimony they could get Bonds.

    is it just me...or is this "story" really lame? I mean, everybody knew it anyways. It's no shocking revelation. There is some swooping change coming in MLB and i really couldnt care less.

    maybe its just me though.

    OK so now everyone who has come in contact with Bond's personal trainer has admitted to using steroids.

    Bonds gets noticeably bigger and more productive in his late 30's.

    BALCO people have admitted under oath to sending steroids to Bond's house.

    But were supposed to believe an angel like Barry would never do such a thing and he was having them delivered to his home for ????? Sheffield's visit?? Plant food??

    I didn't like Bonds before all the steroid stuff came out but now he's just insulting the intelligence of baseball fans as a whole. He's a liar and a cheat- I don't care how many HR's he hits or how much money he makes he's a poor excuse for a man. Give me the guy making 30-40K a year and teaching his kids the right way to live a life anyday over this piece of shit.

    No! Really? Im surprised a guy can go from 250 and jacked to 190 and scrawny in six months. I remember him looking like a linebacker when he came the Yankees. Now he looks like a pencil. On top of that, the Yankees are on the hook for $9 million a year until 2009. If I were them, I would try to break the contract under misrepresentaion.

    The ball has made the game a joke. The roids by Bonds, Sosa, Giambi, and others have made it rediculous. I think they should call it "basebomb".

    Whats amazing is that this whole scandal jeopardizes the integrity of baseball, and there is no question that Bonds will someday be in the Hall of Fame...

    ...and then there is Pete.

    NYB: "On top of that, the Yankees are on the hook for $9 million a year until 2009. If I were them, I would try to break the contract under misrepresentaion."

    Legally, this can never EVER happen. The Yankees are stuck with Giambi for the next four years and $82 million, and you can book it. Even if Giambi got frustrated with New York and WANTED to break the deal, the Union wouldn't let it happen.

    Giambi is here for four more years and untradeable.

    OB: "...and then there is Pete."

    Before you go flying off the handle with me, I agree with you 1000%. What Bonds, Giambi, Sosa, etc. did hurts the integrity of the game just as much as what Pete did. If I had total autonomy over baseball, Sosa would be ineligible for the HOF, ditto for the Giambino, and Mark McGwire's former record would have a big fat "*" right by it in the record book. I would allow players to be judged for the Hall based on their years without the aid of roids, so therfore Bonds would be in. But four of his MVPs, and his OBP, SLG, BB, and HR records would be stricken from the books.

    HOWEVER, none of this would ever happen: Baseball and Bonds would argue that there were always fully enforceable rules against gambling forever, and there hasn't been concrete rules against steroids (within the game) for most of this Roid Rage Period. Therefore, Pete is painted with a completely different brush than the Roid boys, even though all their actions scarred the game.

    It's amusing how many people (not directed at the board) think today's players are the greatest ever, and then find out most of them cheat. Giambi is no surprise, and Bonds, Sosa, McGwire...? How many? Seems as though no one in baseball is really willing to stand up and say the integrity of the game means shit, as long as everyone is raking in their millions, so enjoy watching the juiced-up, geeked-up monsters hammering homeruns every other at-bat, because I just can't watch it anymore (much).
