Regular readers of the blog and our Sunday Inside Baseball know we don't normally refer by name the guy who wore No. 25 of the Giants because of the shame he brought to the sport. (OK, it's Barry Bonds. There, we said it.). But starting today in San Francisco, No. 25 might get his comeuppance as his federal perjury trial begins in U.S. District Court in San Francisco.
No. 25 said in December, 2003 that he was using arthritis balm and flaxseed oil. The government, of course, claim they were anabolic steroids. Perjuring yourself against a federal grand jury is not the way to maintain a legacy.
ESPN.com has a full archive of stories and previews of the trial at its main No. 25 link
The San Francisco Chronicle did a full preview of the trial in Sunday's editions that you can read here.
