Barry Bonds' giant, commemorative home run plaque was stolen straight off the outfield wall at AT&T Park last night in San Francisco, which is great because:

  1. The guy's home run record is bogus anyway due to massive steroid use
  2. You'd probably have to be on steroids to gank something that big
Bonds Missing Plaque

A rep for the team confirms it was boosted Tuesday night, saying, "We're not sure what happened. We're reviewing video, but haven't found anything yet.''

The plaque was unveiled after Bonds hit his record-breaking 756th home run in 2007.

The walking BALCO clearance sale finished with 762 for his tainted career.

Disgraced baseball great Barry Bonds was sentenced to 30 days house arrest and probation today - basically a slap on the wrist for the juiced up home run king.

A federal judge sentenced Bonds to probation and home confinement for obstructing justice during a grand jury probe into a firm that sold steroids to athletes.

U.S. District Judge Susan Illston stayed the sentence until a higher court rules on the appeal of Bonds' conviction, which resulted from the years-long BALCO probe.

Barry Bonds: What a ...

The sentence caps the highest-profile trial in a 10-year PED case that ensnared athletes in several sports and revealed the use of previously undetectable steroids.

A number of athletes admitted using steroids during secret grand jury proceedings in 2003 related to the investigation of a Bay Area steroids manufacturer BALCO.

Federal prosecutors in 2007 charged Bonds with lying to the grand jury. A criminal jury in April convicted him of obstruction of justice for giving evasive answers.

Responding to questions about steroid use with non sequiturs and rambling digressions, Bonds basically dug his own grave there, not that he'll be punished for it.

The jury failed to reach a verdict on three other charges, and prosecutors asked the judge to sentence Bonds to 15 months in prison. Clearly that didn't work out.

After the hearing, Dennis Riordan, a lawyer for Bonds, said he believes the conviction will be thrown out on appeal, which it very well might, knowing this case.

His conviction in the court of public opinion? Another story entirely.

All-time home run leader Barry Bonds and his enormous head were convicted in a Los Angeles courtroom today of obstruction of justice, as it was determined he lied to a grand jury about using steroids and human growth hormone.

The former San Franciso Giants star revealed no emotion after the verdict, which followed four days of deliberation. The jury was deadlocked on a trio of other charges.

A Guilty Slugger

The case stemmed from a testimony Bonds gave in 2003, during which he denied knowledge of ever receiving performance-enhancing drugs from a Bay Area lab and claimed he had no idea that personal trainer Greg Anderson injected him with anything illegal.

Major League Baseball's Mitchell Report, however, listed over 100 names of individuals who had failed drugs tests. Bonds was among them.

Federal sentencing guidelines now recommend he serve 15 to 21 months in prison, but the disgraced slugger will likely be related to home confinement instead.
