The Bonds Case

Yeah, we all know that Bonds has his lawywers suing the San Francisco Chronicle, Gotham Books, and the authors of Game of Shadows for using "illegally obtained" Grand Jury testimony in the book. Bonds's lawyer fired off this gem earlier today:

"His bat speaks for himself and he's not going to speak on this action and this book."

True, Bonds's bat speak of an elite player. The question, however, is how is said elite player's credibility affected when when steroid-enhanced muscles are driving it through the strike zone? Apparently Bonds and his lawyers aren't prepared to answer such a question.

The folks over at Sports Law Blog have a more detailed analysis of this issue than I could ever conjure up.
