Velarde says Bonds’ trainer gave him injections
Question of the Day
Bonds, baseball’s season and career home run king, is charged with four counts of lying and one count of obstruction for telling a grand jury in 2003 that he didn’t knowingly use performance-enhancing drugs. Wearing a blue suit and blue tie, he took notes and conferred with lead lawyer Allen Ruby during a day filled with science, such as explanations of how an isotope-ratio mass spectrometer works and the difference between carbon-12 and carbon-13.
“I think we are all feeling a little obtuse right now,” Illston said late in the day.
Velarde played mostly for the New York Yankees but also for the Angels and Athletics in a major league career from 1987-02. He met Anderson in 2001 through Estalella, who split that year between Bonds‘ Giants and the Yankees.
He then switched to injections and said after them he felt he had more endurance and strength. He paid Anderson $500 to $800.
At the start of the morning, Ruby cross-examined Benard and tried to imply Benard didn’t know that substances Anderson gave him called “the clear” and “the cream” were steroids. Bonds told the grand jury Anderson told him they were “flaxseed oil” and arthritic balm.
Benard admitted he met with the prosecution when he arrived in San Francisco this week from his home in Washington state.
Benard said prosecutors reviewed his grand jury testimony with them.
“They showed me what I said earlier, when my memory was clearer,” Benard said.
“Isn’t it true, Mr. Benard, that you were asked many times at the grand jury what Anderson said to you about this new material he was giving you and you never said that he had called it an undetectable steroid?” Ruby asked.
“You got a better idea of what I said in there than I do,” Benard told him.
