Getting around MLB's feeble steroid policy

Could baseball players be charged? Wow.

Bonds's trainer said to implicate players
Anderson says he supplied steroids
By Rob Gloster, Associated Press, 2/18/2004

SAN FRANCISCO -- Greg Anderson, Barry Bonds's personal trainer, told federal agents he gave steroids to several baseball players, according to documents released yesterday.

No players were identified in the documents and it was unclear whether Anderson gave names to the federal agents.

Anderson was one of four men charged last week in a steroid-distribution ring that allegedly supplied athletes with banned substances. All four pleaded innocent. No athletes have been charged.

Federal officials released two affidavits yesterday that supported search warrants used in raids on Anderson's home in September.

"Inside Anderson's residence, agents found steroids, syringes and other paraphernalia associated with steroid distribution activities," the documents said. "In addition, agents found files identifying specific athletes."

The new documents say Anderson initially denied distributing steroids in discussions with federal agents but later said he sometimes "gave" steroids to people he knew. "Upon further questioning, Anderson admitted that he had given steroids to several professional baseball players," the documents say.

Federal agents followed Anderson on Sept. 11, 2002, as he made a quick visit to the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative -- the nutritional supplements lab allegedly at the center of the steroid-distribution ring.

"Anderson returned to his vehicle and proceeded to drive directly, without stopping, to Pacific Bell Park," the documents say. "Anderson was followed until he entered the players' parking lot area of the professional baseball stadium, past a gate and guarded entrance."

I'm back. Sorta.
