Okay, now it’s out in the open–or at least the accusations are. Bonds, Sheffield, Giambi are named in court papers as having received steroids.
All three refused to comment to the press yesterday/this morning. That’s not going to cut it down the road. As for the carefully worded statement from Barry’s lawyer, “We continue to adamantly deny that Barry was provided, furnished or supplied any of those substances at any time by Greg Anderson.”–that leaves a pretty wide gulf of possibility, no?
In fairness, can we ask why the government is leaking so much information in this case? Could this have something to do with the Dubya/Ashcroft politically driven steroid offensive? Also, exactly from where is the information that these players were given drugs coming from, because it is adamantly denied by the accused?
This whole sordid affair continues to get more sordid with each passing moment.
