Bonds doesn't plan to play this year

And according to ESPN:

There are two Disabled Lists, the 15-day and 60-day. The only real difference between them is that players on the 60-day DL -- sometimes called the Emergency DL -- don't count against a team's 40-man roster.

Isn't it supposedly random testing?

We don't really know that they don't test 60 day DL guys, because why wouldn't they? What makes those guys ammune to the testing?

Don't know. Someone will have to dig up the MLBPA agreement to find out for sure.

It doesn't matter if the player is on the DL or not. Any player can be tested. Here is a story from a few months ago that suggests Bonds has been tested already this season.

Reading it now.

It says that document is from 2003, so wouldn't that be out of date?

There you go. I don't really believe he's hiding from drug testing because I don't think he can hide.

Like Bonds has ever given a rat's rear about what anyone thinks.

My main reaction is that no action this year for BB means less shot for him to catch Aaron, which is fine by me.

Definately. His PR guy or agent or even Bonds himself picked the worst time to release the news. Not a good decision for his already damaged credibility.
