Barry Bonds sentenced....sort of

Barry Bonds
There is almost an end in sight for the never-ending Barry Bonds steroid saga.

Yes, we actually thought it was over today when a U.S District Court judge in San Francisco sentenced Bonds to 30 days of house arrest, 2-years of probation and 250 hours of community service plus a $4,000 fine.

All because Bonds was convicted of giving misleading testimony in front of a grand jury.


Shortly thereafter, the judge delayed the decision pending an appeal by Bonds, which could take upwards of a year.

Quite honestly, we aren't quite sure what the cost of this prosecution is, but is it really worth it? The grand jury appearance was 8-years ago. Bonds has already lost most all of his credibility which is a far greater punishment then being confined to his house.

But then again, who are we to say.
