    Barry Bonds Sucks

    NEW YORK -- Barry Bonds failed a test for amphetamines last season and originally blamed it on a teammate, the Daily News reported Thursday.

    When first informed of the positive test, Bonds attributed it to a substance he had taken from teammate Mark Sweeney's locker, the New York City newspaper said, citing several unnamed sources.

    I really dislike Barry Bonds. Why won't he just go away.

    Is this true? If so, wouldn't they have kicked him out?
    And WHO by the way, just takes drugs from someone elses locker? What, did he think they were "PEZ???"
    If this IS true, it's just another of the many reasons to dislike this guy.

    Will he get into the Hall of Fame? Mcgwire didn't so it should only be fitting if Bonds didn't as well. Sure, he may steal Aaron's record but that is not an automatic ticket in -- look at Pete Rose.

    And why was he stealing things out of a teammate's locker?

    After "unknowingly" taking steroids before :thumbsup: , why would he take a substance that he did not know what was? Don't we teach out 3 year olds not to put things in their mouths if they do not know what they are?

    from the article

    Under baseball's amphetamines policy, which went into effect last season, players are not publicly identified for a first positive test. A second positive test for amphetamines results in a 25-game suspension. The first failed steroids test costs a player 50 games
    '
    Since it seems like it was his FIRST, no real punishment??

    Love how the guy attempts to blame somebody else for his own stupidity. The guy is the posterboy for turds in baseball.

    If anyone had any doubt about his character, he left no doubt now! He will throw ANYBODY under the bus to try to take the pressure off himself.
