More Excuses for Barry

Funny, just last night on Baseball Zealot Radio during our discussion of steriods, drugs and whatnot, we were talking about how “greenies” were common during the ’50s and 60s. Then we all reminded ourselves that they were still probably prevalent today.

Leave it to Barry to prove that to us.

Bonds has just failed an amphetamine test. Not only that, he says it was probably something he took out of a bottle from teammate Mark Sweeney’s locker.

“When first informed of the positive test, Bonds attributed it to a substance he had taken from teammate Mark Sweeney’s locker, the New York City newspaper said, citing several unnamed sources.”

I don’t know why Bonds is taking pills out of lockers that aren’t his. Nor do I know why he his bringing up Sweeney’s name in the media. If he needs to talk about it, talk to Sweeney or the manager.

Excuses, excuses.

  1. There should be an easy way to tell if Barry is lying. Has Ex-Quad City River Bandit slugger Mark Sweeney tested positive for the same substance that made Barry test positive?

    Another thing: Does it really matter where Barry got the drug? It matters WHETHER YOU TOOK IT, not WHERE YOU GOT IT. Right?

  2. I was trying to come up with a good analogy for the Bonds/Sweeney thing.

    It would be like a co-worker coming to my office and taking pills out of an unlabeled bottle and ingesting them.

    And then blaming me.

  3. Great team chemistry on the Giants, eh?
