Everybody knows what a huge star Barry Bonds was while playing professional baseball. However his doping case is decreasing his popularity level, as some people already believe he’s guilty. Bonds’ trial began on Monday, more than 3 years after he was indicted.

The all-time home-run leader was charged for lying to a grand jury when he refused to admit that he used performance-enhancing drugs. Odds.

To get this trial underway, there was a selection of about 100 prospective jurors.The number was later brought down to 12 jurors and 4 alternates for a case that could take up about a month or so in San Francisco federal court.

Jurors had to fill a questionnaire and were asked if they could be impartial. Some of them had odd answers such as juror No. 9 who said that it was hard to make decisions about other people’s lives. Another one claimed that he was a huge SF Giants fan and could not judge Barry Bonds after giving him so much entertainment. There were jurors who even talked about the benefits steroids provide to athletes.  One of the prospective jurors whom prosecutors want excused wrote on her questionnaire that he is guilty and cannot be excused for lying to a grand jury. Scores.

When Bonds was charged for the first time in December 2007, there was a huge amount of media chasing after him, including fans, photographers, even helicopters. This time… not even a fan out there to support him and there was just a handful of photographers gathering outside to receive Bonds in federal court.

During the trial, Bonds stood with his legal team at the defense table. Federal agent Jeff Novitzky was leading the investigation of the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative, joined by the prosecutors. Bonds is the biggest name to go to trial from the BALCO probe.

Bonds, who played for the San Francisco Giants when he hit 73 home-runs in a season, had pleaded not guilty and has been charged for lying to a grand jury after he denied taking drugs to enhance his baseball performance.

In the meantime, we will have to wait and see how this one ends up for Barry. Las Vegas odds.
