Default Report says Bonds, Giambi and more ARE using steriods.....

ESPN.com news services
SAN FRANCISCO -- Barry Bonds received steroids and human growth hormone from a nutritional supplements lab implicated in a steroid-distribution ring, according to information given to federal investigators, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Tuesday.

Investigators also were told that New York Yankees stars Jason Giambi and Gary Sheffield, as well as three other major leaguers and one NFL player, were given steroids, the newspaper reported.


Bonds' personal trainer, Greg Anderson, gave the players the drugs from the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative, according to information given to the government and shared with the newspaper.


The newspaper stated that its information did not "explicitly state" that the athletes used the steroids after obtaining them.

Bonds, Giambi and Sheffield, all of whom testified last fall before the grand jury that indicted four men in the alleged steroid-distribution ring, have denied steroid use. The three men declined comment Monday when contacted by the newspaper.

"We continue to adamantly deny that Barry was provided, furnished or supplied any of those substances at any time by Greg Anderson," Bonds' attorney Michael Rains told the newspaper.


Sheffield and Giambi refused to comment on the report Tuesday morning at the Yankees' spring training camp in Tampa, Fla.


"Words, speculation doesn't bother me. It's as simple as that. I deal with it. You know I don't like dealing with issues. You know I don't like dealing with controversy. Nobody likes to do that," Sheffield said.


Sheffield's attorney, Paula Canny, told the Chronicle: "Gary Sheffield has never knowingly ingested a steroid ... and Gary Sheffield has never knowingly applied an anabolic steroid cream to his body."


Prosecutors released documents last month saying Anderson told federal agents he gave steroids to several professional baseball players. None of those players was identified in those documents.


Anderson's attorney, Tony Serra, said the trainer had seven professional athletes as clients -- Bonds and five other major leaguers, and one football player.


Serra said last Friday that Bonds "never took anything illegal" and that the slugger was offered -- but rejected -- a substance at the heart of the government's case against the four indicted men.

That substance, according to government documents, was the recently unmasked steroid THG.

Anderson has been charged with participating in a steroid-distribution ring that provided performance-enhancing drugs to professional athletes. Also charged have been BALCO founder Victor Conte and the lab's vice president, James Valente, as well as track coach Remi Korchemny.

The Chronicle reported that two of Bonds' former teammates -- Marvin Benard of the Chicago White Sox and Kansas City catcher Benito Santiago -- and former Oakland infielder Randy Velarde also received performance-enhancing drugs, as did Oakland Raiders linebacker Bill Romanowski.

An anonymous source told the Chronicle that Anderson provided Bonds with steroids and human growth hormone as far back as 2001, when the slugger hit 73 homers to break the single-season record. Bonds has 658 career homers -- 97 shy of Hank Aaron's career mark.

Human growth hormone, or hGH, works like a steroid, building muscle mass and helping athletes recover from training. Standard drug tests are unable to detect it, but scientists are working to develop a reliable test before the Athens Olympics this August

well, I'm interested in this for many reasons.....if they are using steroids knowingly, I believe that it completely discredits anything they have done record wise.....I'd be interested in hearing what you guys have to say on this.....

Whoa...whoa...whoa...WHOA. NOWHERE in that story does it say they were USING steroids. It says they were GIVEN steroids.

I firmly believe they all were indeed using them, but it doesn't say that in the story, just to be clear. I think they further implicate themselves by their lame ass excuses too. Bonds' has to be the worst ever..."The balls are softer."

No, Barry. YOUR balls are softer, thanks to THG. Sheffield's cop out is equally as lame too. "I have never knowingly taken steroids."

You expect me to believe that? Athletes are EXTREMELY aware of what they are putting in their bodies. You expect us to believe some guys just gave Sheff some pills and he popped 'em like vitamins WITHOUT knowing 100% what they are and what they do? Give us a fucking break, Gary.

At least Giambi has a "somewhat" believable reason. As someone who is gonna be the starting 1B for the Yankees, he needed to shed weight. That I can actually buy, but still don't think he wasn't on the juice.

Baseball is gonna have so much fuckin egg on their faces when this is over. Anytime your name is mentioned in the same sentence as BILL ROMANOWSKI for using 'roids.....your up shit creek. Romo has never denied using them.

This story will just get more interesting as time goes on.

Damn, Jaden, you continue to make very good points.

I was just talking to someone about this the other day, no athlete is taking steroids on "accident", athletes take such good care (minus David Wells, and Shaq) of their bodies, and follow them so closely, that if they were taking something they shouldn't have been, they would know, you can't even feed us that bullshit.

And as far as Giambi, we all know he's taking them... shit, I have been saying that for the last 2 years, now all we need is facts.

Thanks, Em...but most of those were "borrowed" comments from JT The Brick last night on Fox Sports Radio.

I wrote them because I agree 100%. There's not a single athlete ALIVE...from the pros down to high school who will put a suppliment or something into their body without knowing what it will do to them.

It's Barry and Sheffield seriously insulting the intelligence of baseball and sports fans in general.

I Love How They Try And Tarnish Bonds Image, But Never Allowed This To Be Brought Up When McGwire Was Playin' And Swept It Under The Rug Until He Retired And It Became A Non-Factor.

This Is All About The Record And Whether Or Not He Will Be Remembered As Usin' Play Enhancin' Drugs.

Slash makes a very good point. Sosa and Big Mac were medie friendly, them blastin BOMBS everynight and the fans eatin it up was a great story, but they didn't say shit about 'roids then. Bonds is an asshole and very media unfriendly, and this shit comes flowin out like diarhea

Big Mac was using androstenedione. It was NOT illegal in MLB or NBA at that time. It was illegal in the NFL and NHL. I don't recall what side of the fence the Olympic's were.
