Bonds' Personal Trainer and Others Charged With Pushing Steroids 

Various news outlets reported yesterday (for examples, see 1, 2, and 3) that a federal grand jury sitting in San Francisco has handed up a 42 count indictment against Greg F. Anderson, Bonds' personal trainer and boyhood friend, along with top executives of BALCO Labs. The indictment alleges a scheme to provided steroids, human growth hormones, EPO, and other drugs to MLB and NFL players, as well as track and field stars. No athletes were named or mentioned in the indictment. Regarding his relationship with BALCO, Bonds told Muscle and Fitness Magazine:

"I visit BALCO every three to six months. They check my blood to make sure my levels are where they should be. Maybe I need to eat more broccoli than I normally do. Maybe my zinc and magnesium intakes need to increase."

The Hot Corner: This is going to get uglier before it gets better. Athletes' names WILL surface. Depending on the strength of its case, the governemnt might try to cut Anderson a deal in exchange for his testimony. If this happens, boyhood friends or not, Bonds better hope the only thing that these quacks told him to take more of was broccoli.
