In San Francisco, U.S. District Court Judge Susan Illston refused late Friday to overturn Barry Bonds' obstruction of justice conviction, denying the slugger's motion for a new trial or acquittal on the charge.
In April, jurors failed to reach a verdict on three other counts charging the seven-time NL MVP with making false statements to a grand jury in 2003 .
Bonds is likely to appeal Illston's decision, which could delay any retrial until 2013.
Today marks the one-year anniversary of the Washington Nationals' announcement that pitching phenom and Touch 'Em All (formerly High&Inside) fave Stephen Strasburg would need a ligament replacement operation requiring 12 to 18 months of rehabilitation. See you next year, big guy.
