As they said in the song “It’s A Wonderful World.” The perjury charge has been dropped against former juicer and fine human being, Baroid Bonds. Because Baroid had 6 million to pay for lawyers, they used their trickery skills to get Bonds off. Bonds issued this nonsense statement:
“Today’s news is something that I have long hoped for. I am humbled and truly thankful for the outcome as well as the opportunity our judicial system affords to all individuals to seek justice. I would like to thank my family, friends, and all of you who have supported me throughout my career and especially over the past several years. Your support has given me strength throughout this process and for that, I am beyond grateful. This has been a long and strenuous period in my life; I very much look forward to moving beyond it. I do so without ill will toward anyone. I am excited about what the future holds for me as I embark on the next chapter. Lastly and certainly not least, I would like to thank my legal team for their hard work and diligence on my behalf.”
This does not mean that Baroid did not cheat. Hopefully Baseball writers will continue to show some “balls” and not vote this creep into The Hall Of Fame.
