Obligatory Sports Post

I've often thought that Barry Bonds, like a lot of professional athletes, seems to think it's all about him. Or at least should be.

Well, it appears he may have his wish. According to Jason Grimsley, Arizona Diambondback reliever and 18-year journeyman pitcher released this week after getting pinched by Federal agents curious about his dabbling in performance-enhancing products, the Fed's want Barry:

An attorney for released Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Jason Grimsley said Wednesday that federal agents tried to pressure the player into wearing a listening device in an effort to collect incriminating evidence against San Francisco Giants slugger Barry Bonds, The Arizona Republic reported.

"It was a specific effort to target Bonds," attorney Edward F. Novak told the newspaper. "We were told that Jason's cooperation was necessary to their case."
Novak said Grimsley subsequently "was outed by the feds" because he didn't cooperate, the Republic reported.

"They asked him specifically about Barry Bonds, and Jason said he didn't know Bonds well and didn't know if he did or didn't use drugs," Novak told the paper. Investigators then asked Grimsley whether he knew any of Bonds' teammates who might confide in Grimsley about the slugger's alleged use of performance enhancements, Novak said.
