ESPN is reporting that San Francisco Giants slugger Barry Bonds failed a drug test by Major League Baseball last season for amphetamines. Being the coward that he is, Bonds blamed the failed test on teammate Mark Sweeney.
When first informed of the positive test, Bonds attributed it to a substance he had taken from teammate Mark Sweeney‘s locker, the New York City newspaper said, citing several unnamed sources.
Mark Sweeney denies giving Bonds anything or having anything illegal to give Beefhead Barry.
Mark was made aware of the fact that his name had been brought up,” Sweeney’s agent Barry Axelrod told the Daily News. “But he did not give Barry Bonds anything, and there was nothing he could have given Barry Bonds.”
Bonds, who has always maintained he never has tested positive for illegal drug use, is already under investigation for lying about steroid use.
