Barry Bonds' personal trainer told federal agents he gave steroids to several baseball players, according to documents released Tuesday.
 


No players were identified in the documents and it was unclear whether the trainer, Greg Anderson, gave specific 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 Tuesday 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. These files contained calendars, which appear to contain references to daily doses of steroids and growth hormones."

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.

personally I would love a couple of big-name players to be convicted of steroid use....it would definitely speed the process of enacting better testing and penalty policies....and in the long-run may save major league baseball.

I'm thinking that just fining them wouldn't be enough, they all get paid so much. I think for this year, I know this is crazy and would kill baseball, they should suspend all the players involved in steroid use until after the all-star break. That would only be reasonable, the all-star game shouldn't be full of steroid druggies.

only the all-star break?? Geez, you are wayyyy to nice.

I recall in an earlier thread discussing drugs i suggested a one year ban for first offense...
