Honestly - who cares whether he's been tested or not. He admitted, under oath, to using steroids. Now he can allege that he didn't KNOW they were steroids (yeah, right), but he admitted that he used the clear and the cream.
So maybe he is being tested. And when the test comes back that they haven't clerared his system and he's still positive, he has another update on his web site how his rehab isn't progressing as well as he'd hoped and his return is going to get pushed back even further.
His first knee surgery came after his grand jury testimony was leaked. To me, that was simply the excuse he was going to use to serve a one year suspension for the admitted use of steroids. I know 50+ year old women who were 30+ pounds overweight (i.e. not in top athletic shape) who were back to normal and running 5k races and playing softball within 6 months. Bonds is a top athlete with some of the best doctors and trainers and rehab specialists money can by and he's still having trouble 6 months later and thinks he'll need another 2-3 months to recover?!? Please.
In my opinion, he's simply serving a one year suspension under the guise of a knee injury as part of an agreement he and MLB have based on his admitted use of steroids. Can you imagine the hoopla of Bonds chasing and passing Babe and possibly Aaron after his testimony came out? A black eye on baseball. So he serves a one year ban, comes back and tests clean for 2006 and beyond. And if he still breaks the record, MLB can point to the program as showing he did so as a clean athlete.
So I'm not shocked by this news at all. Heck, in ST, Barry even admitted this could happen. Again, I think he knew it would and was giving people a forewarning that this would occur. Why would he have made such a statement in ST if not? It is just too suspicious that every article I read in ST talked about how well he was progressing and was having to be "reinged in", etc. and yet here we are 6 months later and he's still out even though the average person is 100% again.
