Bonds was either truthful or hiding his secret


(04-07) 14:21 PDT SAN FRANCISCO -- Barry Bonds was a "secret" steroid user, and the secret of his drug use "was so powerful" that it impelled the former Giants star to lie under oath, a federal prosecutor charged today.

But Bonds' defense lawyer countered that the government had brought the jury "no - zero - evidence" that anything Bonds told a grand jury in 2003 actually disrupted the federal investigation into the BALCO steroid scandal.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeff Nedrow and lead defense lawyer Allen Ruby gave competing closing arguments in Bonds' perjury trial in federal court in San Francisco.

Nedrow told the jury that when baseball's home run champion was summoned before a federal grand jury in 2003 he was desperate to conceal his use of banned drugs.

1. Yep. He's either an idiot or a liar.
And I don't think he's an idiot.
