Barry Bonds Perjury Trial 2011, Thursday Expected Witness Testimony: Larry Bowers, USADA

There has been a change in the order of witnesses in Barry Bonds 2011 perjury and obstruction of justice trial. Originally the plan was for Giants clubhouse manager Mike Murphy and former BALCO VP Jim Valente to testify today. Steve Hoskins has to finish his cross-examination and then after that we will apparently hear from Larry Bowers, currently the Senior Managing Director for Technical and Information Resources at the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA).

Dr. Bowers testimony will be about the items identified in a 2003 urine test of Bonds. He'll testify that the urine test reflected anabolic steroids and according to the government witness list " that it is illegal to distribute and obtain those without a legitimate medical condition requiring a prescription from a physician.  Dr. Bowers will also testify to the side effects of steroid use, including effects on blood values, possible organ damage, and other side effects." I can't imagine Bowers will testify too terribly long given that it is some simple basic evidence that is relatively commonly known at this point. I'm curious ih we'll see all that much cross-examination.
