Jason Giambi says Bonds trainer supplied steroids
Question of the Day
The two were the first athletes called to testify at the Bonds perjury trial, which is in its second week.
Giambi said he paid Anderson a total of about $10,000 for several shipments of steroids known as “the clear” and “the cream” designed to evade detection starting in late 2002 and through the beginning of the 2003 baseball season. Syringes and a calendar detailing when he should take the substances were included in the first shipment, Giambi testified.
During cross examination, Bonds attorney Cris Arguedas read Giambi’s 2003 grand jury testimony when he testified that Anderson had told him “the clear and the cream had steroid-like effects without being a steroid.”
Giambi agreed with that testimony.
Neither Giambi provided direct testimony about Bonds. Instead, prosecutors hope to use their testimony _ and that of other players _ to show that Anderson was a well-known steroids dealer. Anderson is in jail for refusing to testify at the trial.
Several other athletes are expected to testify about their relationship with Anderson this week.
Bonds, the major league record-holder for home runs in a career (762) and a season (73), has pleaded not guilty to four charges that he lied to a grand jury when he denied knowingly taking performance-enhancing drugs. He also pleaded not guilty to a charge of obstruction.
Before the Giambis’ afternoon testimony, former San Francisco Giants trainer Stan Conte testified that Bonds added significant muscle mass before the 2000 season. Conte said he noticed acne on the slugger’s back, which prosecutors allege is a side effect of steroid use.
