As the Roid Turns

Just when you think things couldn’t get any more entertaining in the whole Baroid the Steroid soap opera, his band of lawyers decides to finally take some legal action on the whole Game of Shadows deal. Problem is the claims are about as weighty as a Baroids claims that he’s innocent. Federal Judge James Warren agrees, so he tossed a request for a restraining order on the release of the book.

Baroids attorneys didn’t make big enough fools of themselves with the restraining order request, so they also decided to send a letter Friday to U.S. District Judge Susan Illston demanding that the writers (Mark Fainaru-Wada and Lance Williams) and publishers (Gotham Books) be held liable.

"The true victim is not Barry Bonds, but the sanctity and integrity of the grand jury process," attorney Alison Berry Wilkinson wrote.

The first question we’d like answered is, how many cereal box tops did Miss Berry Wilkinson have to send in to get her law degree?

Gotham spokesperson Lisa Johnson fired back at Dewey, Cheetum & Howe with a response on behalf of the publisher.

"We at Gotham Books are shocked that Barry Bonds would take such a foolish step," she said. "Any respected First Amendment lawyer in America knows that his claim is nonsense."

Ouch.

While the bonds lawsuit is just silly, what he and Bud Selig are doing to baseball is not imho.

As long as MLB continues to allow this farce to go forward I am Boycotting MLB.
