According to the Daily News:
Barry Bonds, already under investigation for lying under oath about his steroid use, failed a test under Major League Baseball’s amphetamine policy last season and then initially blamed it on a teammate, the Daily News has learned.
Under the policy, which went into effect only last season, players are not publicly identified for a first positive test.
But according to several sources, when first informed by the MLB Players Association of the positive test, Bonds attributed it to a substance he had taken from the locker of teammate Mark Sweeney. Sources did not identify the drug in question but characterized it as a serious stimulant.
When asked last night whether Bonds had an explanation for why he failed the test or if he wanted to issue a denial, Bonds’ agent, Jeff Borris, said, “I have no comment on that.”
This is going to be a long season for Barry (if he plays) and I no longer need to wonder why teams expressed no interest in signing Barry for the upcoming season. He’s become a locker room cancer, a media circus, and now a man all to willing to blame his teammates for his failures. It’s to a point where baseball and Barry would be better if Barry just walked away from the game.
