AROUND THE HORN: Lawyers for 2 accused: Bonds clean


March 5, 2004











SAN FRANCISCO -- Lawyers for two men accused in a drug-distribution ring said Thursday that Giants outfielder Barry Bonds never received steroids from the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative.


The attorneys also called for an investigation into how information was leaked to a newspaper that reported Bonds was given steroids and human growth hormone by his personal trainer, Greg Anderson -- who allegedly got them from BALCO.


The San Francisco Chronicle, quoting information it said was given to federal investigators, reported Tuesday that steroids were given to Bonds, Jason Giambi and Gary Sheffield of the Yankees, three other major leaguers and one NFL player.


Bonds, Giambi and Sheffield have repeatedly denied taking steroids.


"Our clients have adamantly stated they have no evidence of Bonds doing any wrongdoing," said Troy Ellerman, who represents BALCO vice president James Valente. "There's no evidence that Bonds did anything, other than rumor and innuendo."


Valente, Anderson, BALCO founder Victor Conte and track coach Remi Korchemny have pleaded innocent to steroid distribution.
