OK…..

Lipsyte is saying that Bonds’ use of PED’s is well within the realm what a superstar athlete would consider doing to maintain their career. Got that? He’s not saying that Bonds didn’t use PED’s; he’s mentioning what should always be mentioned when discussing Bonds and PED’s, that all we have is hearsay and conjecture.

That’s not to say that it doesn’t appear likely that he did use PED’s, just that it’s not the same as, say, a failed drug test; or a teammate saying that he used them in front of him, or something like that. We have the Chronicle authors putting together a pretty damning book, but still; it bears noting that Greg Anderson is still refusing to testify against Bonds. Victor Conte never has either, and both of these guys had their feet to the fire. The fact that these two men didn’t come out and put the kibosh on Bonds has to carry some weight. They burned a bunch of other athletes, so why not Barry?
