    There is a new book that was just published called Asterisk. The book is basically a line by line attack on the so called evidence contained in the Game of Shadows book.


    "Games of Shadows was supposed to be the definitive compilation of proof that Bonds used steroids. But the authors seemed to start with their conclusions and then work backward to try to make the available 'evidence' fit their predetermined conclusions."

    "Was there another side to this story?"

    "This book's central contention is that the case against Bonds was built on half-truths, speculation, innuendo, assumptions, rationalizations, exaggerations, and flat-out errors."

    "No one out there is compiling evidence to defend Bonds. But plenty of contrary evidence exists. And there are plenty of problems with the evidence that has been compiled against Bonds. For example, we can start with the glaring absence of direct evidence."

    This should be a fun thread.

    For what it's worth, the book's Amazon listing:


    Worth noting that on the same page, game of Shadows is available . . .for six bucks. I guess they figure everyone has read it by now.

    Oh, and . . .


    Let's keep doing this. Maybe he'll leave forever. Or come back just to irritate everyone . . . .
