    SAN FRANCISCO -- Barry Bonds, baseball's home run king, was indicted for perjury and obstruction of justice Thursday and could face prison instead of the Hall of Fame for telling a federal grand jury he did not knowingly use performance-enhancing drugs.

    The indictment, culminating a four-year investigation into steroid use by elite athletes, charged Bonds with four counts of perjury and one of obstruction of justice. If convicted, he could be sentenced to a maximum of 30 years in prison.

    I just wonder what new evidence they have. Otherwise this is a waste of time.

    All of this for a sports figure....go figure.

    Well, if they have no new evidence at hand, then this is just a monumental waste of tax payer's money prosecuting this guy.

    Bonds' indictment is actually not about his using of steroids... It's about him lying to the jury that he didn't take steroids.

    Pretty sure we all know that.

    I think he'll be convicted.

    Witch hunts usually end with the desired result.

    For a quick nostalgia trip, substitute "Clinton" for "Bonds", then "sex" for "steroids".

    I smell a fix...

    As an aside, if Selig offered to forego any and all "asterisk" arguments, and lobbied for Bonds' inclusion in the H.O.F., if Barry would concede...


    Oh, what am I talking about - never happen.

    Barry would want to have his cake, eat it, and...and...probably ask for seconds.

    Yes, and isn't that something.
