    Really, the only way this stands a chance of succeeding is if they actually have test results.

    How can you try to prosecute some one for lying under oath when you have no proof that the individual was lying?

    The feds wouldn't have indicted him without believing they would win. I mean, their success rate is astronomical. They probably have a stronger case than anybody originally thought.

    Usually I say go after his ass, but honestly, I could think of a thousand more important matters to worry about than Barry fucking Bonds lying on the stand about whether or not his used roids.


    How about we just fine the hell out of him,and make him do some community service so we can keep this from becoming the media herpes we all know its gonna be.

    This is true, but since those things aren't being dealt with, and won't be, I'll settle for the hilarity of watching this guy get knocked down a few pegs.
    I wanted to find a picture of the X-wing crashing into the bridge of the Star Destroyer where the guy's all like "TOOO LATE!" and post it.

    But I couldn't. Now I've ruined any potential humor by typing that out.

    It was mentioned during the Michael Vick news that the federal government has something like a 97% conviction rate. They don't chase indictments if they don't have a shot at winning, and they have a boatload of money to throw at their cases.

    I'm glad to see the dirtbag get indicted. I remember reading a while back that perjury almost never gets charged, because it's so hard to prove, so they obviously have something good, and probably more than what the article is letting on.

    You know i'd LOVE for them to do something to his record but MLB and Selig probably won't do anything.

    His records have to stand, but good riddance to him. Hope his career is done and baseball can move past the 'roid' era.

    It better not be the other 3% with this case. I don't want him in the HOF period!

    I bet he will. They've been rationalizing it for over a year now. "he was already a HOFer before he ballooned up" yadda yadda BS.

    About time. Barry should have fessed up when we first HEARD he had used steroids. But I guess we were too stupid to bring him in back then.
