Bonds may not ‘be back at all this year’

LOS ANGELES - Barry Bonds isn’t sure if he’ll return to the Giants’ lineup this season.

“I don’t know right now when I’m going to come back. And right now, I don’t know if I’m going to be back at all this year,” the San Francisco slugger told MLB.com on Thursday in a telephone interview.

Bonds, who has 703 home runs to rank third on baseball’s career list behind Hank Aaron (755) and Babe Ruth (714), returned to his Beverly Hills home in late June to continue rehabilitating his right knee.

Bonds, who turns 41 on July 24, first underwent surgery Jan. 31, and has had two more operations since. He hasn’t played this season.

“He’s progressing, but there’s not a lot to report,” assistant general manager Ned Colletti said before the Giants beat the Dodgers 4-3 Thursday night. “He’s showing signs of progress, but there’s no timetable for baseball work to start and there’s no timetable for a return. He’s just slowly getting better.”


COULD IT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THIS???...


Center of BALCO scandal will plead guilty

SAN FRANCISCO - The founder of a company at the center of a steroid scandal involving top athletes has decided to plead guilty to steroid distribution and money laundering in a deal with federal prosecutors, his attorney said.

Victor Conte, founder of the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative, planned to ask a judge Friday for four months imprisonment and four months of home detention as part of the deal, according to a written statement from his attorney, Mary McNamara.

“Mr. Conte has always accepted responsibility for the conduct reflected in this plea agreement and is looking forward to putting the case behind him,” McNamara said.

Conte has been accused of distributing illegal drugs to more than 30 baseball, football and track and field stars. Also facing trial are Greg Anderson, weight trainer for Barry Bonds of the San Francisco Giants; BALCO vice president James Valente; and track coach Remi Korchemny
Some of the biggest names in sports, including Bonds, Jason Giambi of the New York Yankees and track star Marion Jones have been under a cloud of suspicion based on BALCO grand jury transcripts that were leaked to the San Francisco Chronicle. Bonds and Jones have denied steroid use, while Giambi all but said during a February news conference that he told a federal grand jury in 2003 he had used performance-enhancing drugs.

I don't think he'll break the record and I don't think anyone will hit 50 this year. I wonder if Giambi is back on it. He seems to be hitting well now.
