The Book: John Dewan and bunting for a hit. It’s an awesome study and relevant to a player like Dee Gordon.
CBS Sports: Thanks to Kevin Malone, Paul DePodesta, and Ned Colletti for getting the Dodgers roster to the point where doing almost nothing but re-signing homegrown players since their reigns began would have resulted in the team from the link.
Yes, I’m into sabermetrics and didn’t like DePo. Just felt that everything with him was literally by the numbers, which honestly isn’t sabermetrics.
Los Angeles Times: Congratulations, America! We just spent six million dollars or more to get Barry Bonds two years probation, house arrest, and a fine. **** yeah!
All for a bunch of **** that shouldn’t even be illegal and for a case that shouldn’t have ever been opened. Awesome!
Penn Live: Joe Paterno‘s entire grand jury testimony was read in court and it confirms that he admitted under oath to being told about Jerry Sandusky by Mike McQueary.

BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
After nearly 10 years of legal wrangling and a harsh sentence in the court of public opinion, Major League Baseball home run leader Barry Bonds finally learned his fate.
It turns out retirement and even a presumed lack of alleged steroids can’t stop Bonds from hitting it out the park, except this time his victory jog around the bases happened in a courtroom.
EIGHT F*CKING YEARS. That’s how long federal prosecutors spent trying to throw Barry Bonds in the slammer for 12 counts of perjury and obstruction of justice and whatever else they had a boner over. So when the verdict came down last week, what did the millions of dollars of taxpayer money get us? Guilty on four counts to the tune of a $4,000 fine, home confinement for 30 days...
Fifty million dollars. That’s one estimate of how much the federal government spent to convict Barry Bonds of obstruction of justice. And on Friday, eight months after his conviction, MLB’s all-time home run champ was sentenced to 30 days of house arrest, two years of probation, 250 hours of community service, and a $4,000 fine. That’s not much of a return for “our” investment...
At the end, all you could do was laugh. Eight years, tens of millions of dollars spent, Congressional hearings, trials, convictions, and here's what justice looked like for Barry Bonds:
Home confinement for 30 days. Two years of probation and 250 hours of community service. And, of course, a $4,000 fine.
That's got to be my favorite part. Bonds earned more than $188 million...
The Barry Bonds fiasco is finally over... at least for now.
Upon his conviction for giving misleading testimony before a grand jury investigating steroid use in sports, the Home Run King was sentenced to 30 days of house arrest, two years probation, a $4,000 fine, and 250 hours of community service on Friday.
The government's investigation into the secret steroids distribution...

Happy Holidays to everyone!I've been busy (which is good for me, but not for a blog) so I wanted to point out some good posts for those looking for good Giants stuff to read:BA recently released their Top 10 for the Giants. DrB has his take here at his website. Crazy Crabbers shares some of the BA discussion at his site, which I read regularly. Lots of good info and discussions...
Here is a great video of Barry Bonds hitting his 756th homer of his career and tying Hank Aaron back in 2007.
After being convicted of federal obstruction charges, Barry Bonds was sentenced today to 30 days of house arrest. Darn...he's gonna have to sit in the million dollar mansion for 30 days...yikes...must suck!! *eyes rolling* Bonds also received 2 years of probation, 250 hours of community service and a $4,000 fine.
So basically the government spent millions upon millions...
A federal judge sentenced Barry Bonds to 30 days of house arrest for obstructing justice during an investigation of steroids in sports, saying the retired slugger's grand-jury testimony was evasive and illegal but did not warrant imprisonment.
Eight years of being investigated for steroid allegations ended for home run king Barry Bonds on Friday with a 30-day sentence to be served at home.
As expected, Barry Bonds' sentence was far more Lindsay Lohan than Al Capone.
