1) Why did it take so long?
2) Does this really surprise anyone?
We were telling you the truth back in 2007 and many people were giving us grief back then about slamming the “greatest player in baseball.” Should there be an asterisk next to his record 70 home runs? For that matter, any season totals for Mark McGwire or Sammy Sosa should be highlighted as well. In our opinion the MLB single season home run champ remains Roger Maris.
Details from The San Francisco Gate:
Barry Bonds, the former Giants outfielder and baseball’s all-time home-run leader, was convicted Wednesday of obstruction of justice for giving evasive answers to a federal grand jury that questioned him about his use of performance-enhancing drugs.
The jury that convicted Bonds in federal court in San Francisco deadlocked on three perjury charges. U.S. District Judge Susan Illston declared a mistrial on those counts. The jury returned its verdict after a three-week trial. The panel began its deliberations Friday.
