Barry Bonds And Steroids
The indictment today of Barry Bonds which alleges he lied to a Grand Jury about using steroids and obstructed justice represents a black day for baseball and its fans. He is innocent until proven guilty but the mere fact that baseball's greatest slugger will in all probability be tried puts a stain on his accomplishments. Baseball owners and the players union ( Baseball And Steroids) have a lot of explaining to do as to why the baseball diamond has become a playground for drug users. This indictment coming in the midst of end of season individual awards diminishes those accomplishments. Selig may spin that effective drug use penalties are in place but the proof is in the pudding. Where is the Mitchell report?
