Bonds in Motion

Barry Bonds' attorneys have moved to dismiss the indictment against him on the grounds that the questions asked of him were too vague to support a perjury rap.

I've not seen the motion -- and I'll note that these things rarely get granted -- but it was and remains my view that the questions and answers that purport to constitute Bonds' perjury are far less damning than has been reported to date.

Read a different item on this a day or two ago and was reminded what a witch hunt this is. Anderson maintains he still won't testify but the feds are still trying to put the screws ( how's that for legalize? ) to his wife and his mother in law. IIRC the writer wrote that it is very unlikely that spouse of Anderson will testify, spousal something legal that I don't remember.

I hope Bonds wins his collusion case. Although as I've read elsewhere, the owners would gladly pay the damages just to have him away from their product. He - and Roger I guess now - are the face of the steroid problem. But, hey, it's all better, zero positive tests amongst big leaguers in 08! Hooray!! Ugh.
