Thou Shalt not Lie... or ye Shall be Indicted

So at the end of the day, it isn't the Steroids themselves that
will destroy Barry Bonds... its a fundamental thing that we
all are taught as young children... don't lie.
Don't lie to the Government... that is a biggie. Because eventually,
someday, someway, Big brother will figure it all out and you
will be indicted.
For Barry, it's 5 counts of perjury and obstruction of justice. So
maybe, just maybe, there is enough out on the table against him,
that Bonds will finally just go away from the game of
baseball, and just leave us all alone? Please?

The other big news... A-Rod will be going back to the Yankees.

10 years, $275 million.

2 weeks ago, Yankee fans everywhere hated him (again.) Today, at least for now, he once again their hero. Ugh. I know his bat in the regular season is what makes this guy among the best players of my lifetime. But I must admit, I am thrilled we can't pursue him any longer. I didn't want him in a Red Sox uniform in '08, or for the next 10 years for that matter. Now I have one less thing to worry about. A lot can happen in 10 years. 10 years is obscene. They better hope this guy is never plagued with injuries, because this is a long time to pay a lot of money.

More later...
