Bonds-No Indictment, New Grand Jury?
While I may not like Barry Bonds (San Francisco Giant era),
and I do think the man took steroids and other illegal
substances to enhance his strength, body, and career,
and come back from injury faster...the Grand Jury has
been in place for a long time, and came up empty on him.
It doesn't take much for a Grand Jury to bring down
an indictment, it's really a very low threshold.
Yet, the Feds couldn't meet that level.
So, they are going again.
If you have him on tax evasion, much like Pete Rose
with collectibles and card signings and under the table
cash not reported to the IRS, that's what you have.
But, enough with the BALCO thing. It's been ridden
into the ground. Without testimony from guys who
evidently are not going to rat him out in court, it's done.
We know he cheated: look at his head. How do you
make your head grow?
We know McGwire and Sosa cheated, and their year full
of good guys going for the big record was a bunch of
trash now. They are silenced into shame, their post-game
careers are ignored and they stay out of the limelight.
They have to.
So, let's move on. Unless there is something else we
don't know much about, this thing should go another
Barry is not guilty of anything at all yet. If they can't
get him on perjury, they're done w/that. Move on to
Barry will never be Babe Ruth or Michael Jordan or
Andre Agassi. The guy has a stain on his career and
record, and he can't shake that. But, let him move on,
if they can't indict him after all this time, move on.
