Review: "Game of Shadows"

Game of Shadows: Barry Bonds, BALCO, and the Steroids Scandal that Rocked Professional Sports

By Mark Fainaru-Wada and Lance Williams

I just finished reading "Game of Shadows."  Interesting read.  There is an awful lot of evidence in there, and it all points in one direction.  

I think one of the fascinating, yet under-reported parts of the book is the trouble that the US Anti Doping Agency (USADA) got squeezed before the 2004 Olympics.  

I am awfully curious to see what George Mitchell does.  Even if MLB has no authority to subpoena records, I bet a lot of the evidence could just "show up" on Bud's doorstep if he asked the right way.
