Barry BondsKirk Radomski, the former Mets clubhouse employee indicted in a steroid distribution ring that may involve "dozens" of former and current MLB players, testified last Thursday to the grand jury investigating Barry Bonds. As reported by the NY Times:

Last week’s grand jury testimony connected Radomski to one of the biggest steroid distribution scandals in recent history, the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative case, which became public in 2003 when federal agents raided the Balco offices.

A search warrant affidavit filed in Radomski’s case named some of Radomski’s clients, but those names were blackened out in the document. Still, the affidavit said that Radomski had been distributing performance-enhancing drugs to major league players, including at least one “who was publicly identified as being associated with Balco Laboratories.”

Bonds is the highest-profile player to be linked to Balco, but other players testified in front of the Balco grand jury, including Jason and Jeremy Giambi, Gary Sheffield and Randy Velarde. Other players who testified were A. J. Pierzynski, Benito Santiago, Armando Rios, Bobby Estalella and Marvin Benard.

When asked about whether he knew of Radomski, Jason Giambi replied, “Don’t know who he is,” Giambi said. “There’s nothing there. Sorry, guys.”

We want to know what you think. Is the Radomski bust that big a deal, or is it just one more story about steroids in baseball? Burned out on the topic, or is it time to clean house? Give us your opinions
