100 positive tests in 2003? Two years before that fiasco in front on Congress?? Holy cow...

Court: Feds Can Have Drug Testing Data

Updated 3:02 PM ET December 27, 2006

By DAVID KRAVETS and PAUL ELIAS

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The names and urine samples of about 100 Major League Baseball players who tested positive three years ago can be used by federal investigators, a court ruled Wednesday _ a decision that could have implications for Barry Bonds.

The federal appeals court ruling could bolster the government's perjury case against Bonds if his name is among those who tested positive. The slugger has been the target of a perjury investigation since he testified before a 2004 grand jury that he didn't knowingly use illegal drugs.

Greg Anderson, Bonds' personal trainer, is currently in prison for refusing to testify in the perjury probe. Anderson previously was convicted of steroids distribution.

Investigators seized computer files containing the 2003 test results during raids in 2004 on three labs involved in the MLB testing program.

The unidentified samples had been collected as part of a MLB survey to gauge the prevalence of steroid use. The testing was anonymous under the terms of baseball's labor contract, but each player was assigned a code number to be matched with his name.

Michael Weiner, general counsel for the players' union, didn't immediately respond to a telephone call and e-mail seeking comment.

News Alert!

Igawa signs for five years

NEW YORK -- One day before their negotiating window was set to expire, the Yankees signed Japanese pitcher Kei Igawa to a five-year contract. Igawa, who features a 90-mph fastball and an above-average curveball, went 14-9 with a 2.97 ERA last season, striking out 194 batters to tie for Japan's Central League lead. It was the third time he has won the league's strikeout title, also doing so in 2002 (206 Ks) and 2004 (228).

I see this just an attack on Barry Bonds. If he wasnt going for the HR record I bet this wouldnt be an issue. This is just going to make a bigger mess than it needs to be. MLB needs this to go away and this is not helping. Barry Bonds already screwed himself with the public and will probably get an asterik when he does break the record.

Professional sports in the USA is entertainment. They all have their problems with performance enhancing drugs or illicit drugs. MLB took 3 steps back because it looked the other way. They could do better but they are moving in the right direction now.

Instead of doing what the government does best(effs things up)! They should move forward and put drug testing system in all professional sports instead of attacking MLB. Make each sport put so much aside for it. I may not agree with it but I would accept that over what they are doing right now.

And for the record I do not like Barry Bonds. I didnt like him when he was with the Pirates. He is just an ass!

Ex-Yankees Star to Have Brain Surgery
Thu Dec 28, 4:46 AM


NEW YORK - Former New York Yankees star Bobby Murcer was set to have surgery Thursday to remove a brain tumor, the Daily News reported.

The 60-year-old Murcer, now a Yankees broadcaster, was scheduled to undergo surgery in Houston. He had been having headaches and feeling a loss of energy lately, and the tumor was discovered following an MRI on Christmas Eve, the newspaper reported Thursday.

"I'm feeling OK and we're just going to have to see what this surgery will bring," Murcer told the Daily News by phone Wednesday night. "I'm hopeful that everything will turn out OK and I'm thankful to have so many friends who are rooting for me."

Murcer was to be treated at the MD Anderson Hospital in Houston, one of the top cancer facilities in the nation, the newspaper said.

Murcer played 17 seasons in the major leagues from 1965-83 and was a five-time All-Star and a Gold Glove-winning outfielder. In his career with the Yankees, San Francisco Giants and Chicago Cubs, he batted .277 with 252 home runs and 1,043 RBIs.

After his retirement, Murcer won three Emmy Awards for live sports coverage as the voice of the Yankees.

WOW!!!!!!!!

No freaking way he is worth that.

Though his numbers could get better being in the NL.

I just dont think ANY pitcher is worth that.

yeah his numbers will go down paticularly in that cavernous park but i don't think they will go down THAT much. I can remember when the Sox were paying Pedro $17.5 million and i thought that was a lot.

the Giants have made it pretty clear this offseason they were going to spend. At first they were willing to take on Manny's contract and i thought they gave Bonds a little more than he deserved IMO.

I'm suprised the Mets didn't counter it with just as much but i think Zito wanted to stay in California

Agreed. It is an 'attack' on Bonds*. That's who the Feds are investigating. Whether or not he lied under oath.

The Feds already have the names. They got 'em 2 years ago. They were investigating 10 players that were on the list that had ties to BALCO. MLB stupidly left on the rest of the names when they turned over the list. With the ruling the Feds can keep the rest of the names and now muscle the other 90 to see if any got their 'juice' from BALCO, bolstering their case that Bonds* was aware of the product as others were.

MLB may be 'moving forward' but it's at a snail's pace. Sports is entertainment, but the day MLB started moving into WWF territory, and allowed it to mushroom was a black day for the sport & only hurt it in the long run. Bud Selig should rot in Hell.

What gets me about the whole mess is that everyone from the owners to the sports writers to the fans knew. But, it was oh so entertaining. Now the sports writers and the fans are so santimonious about it & demand the sports be 'cleaned up'. Who among us wasn't cheering for Sosa & McGuirre back in the day? Now that a 'juiced up' Bonds* has surpassed the Babe & is zeroing in on one of MLB's most cherished records, everyone is upset. Rightfully so too; Bonds* cheated. So did Sosa. So did McGuirre. We all knew something was up. But we all looked the other way. It was oh so entertaining. So is the WWF. So is a trainwreck.

Now sports 'journalist' are running around, trying to justify looking the other way & Bonds* eventual induction into the Hall Of Shame because people like Gaylord Perry are in there, and, gee whiz, he admitted to cheating. Spitballs are illegal, you know. The difference that they overlook is that if Perry got caught, he was thrown out of the game. You can't throw Bonds* or the rest of the Immortal 100 out 'cause you can't catch them at anything. Umps aren't qualified to take urine samples. (Now that would be entertaining. "Ok, Giambi, I thing you're cheatin'. Pee in the bottle. You heard me. Drop them drawers! Now, Mister!". Hey, give me a break, it's Thursday.)

It goes to the credibility of the sport. Whether or not the playing field is 'level', whether or not the competition is 'above board'. Talent shouldn't be bought in a syringe.

Sorry, I'm rambling. I'll get off my soapbox, put my drink down & stop preaching now....

otf, I gotta agree with you there...I knew this was coming after the Cubs signed Blue Jays "average" pitcher Ted Lilly to 10 mil per year

Zito is good...but come on, if he gets that much with those stats, imagine what the Jays ace Roy Halladay would get if he was a free agent right now

Since Zito won the Cy Young in 2002 with a 23-5 won lost record, here's what he's done:

2003: 14-12
2004: 11-11
2005: 14-13
2006: 16-10

I think SF is paying for a pitcher who can pitch a lot of games, and doesn't miss starts. But really, thats a lot of dough per throw

Neil, I think the reason the Giants way overpaid was because there is no Halladay, Santana or Zambrano out there for bidding.

There's no way Zito gets that much money if one of the three guys listed above is out there, but if Halladay was out there I would expect somewhere in the Zito range for him simply because of his injury track record IMO.
