 MILWAUKEE (AP) -Barry Bonds says he is unfazed by the threat of an indictment that could not only derail his career but send him to jail.
``Do I look concerned?'' Bonds asked a small group of reporters by his locker Saturday before the San Francisco Giants faced the Milwaukee Brewers. ``You guys just want more stories about me. It's unreal.''
Bonds, just two home runs from tying Hank Aaron's record of 755, could be indicted if a federal grand jury determines he perjured himself when he testified in the BALCO case that he hadn't knowingly taken performance-enhancing drugs.
Though he has long denied using steroids, there have been constant suspicions they fueled his pursuit of Aaron's record as well as the single-season homers mark in 2001, when he hit 73 to pass Mark McGwire.
``But I'm not discussing it,'' Bonds said. ``I haven't been discussing it forever and I will not discuss it. You guys are going to write your story what you're going to write. Just do that. Leave me out of it.''
Thursday marked the year anniversary of the start of the grand jury in San Francisco investigating Bonds, and it appeared that the yearlong term had been extended. The strongest indication that the grand jury remained in session was the continued incarceration of Bonds' personal trainer, Greg Anderson.
Anderson is being held in contempt of court for refusing to testify in the perjury probe. He will remain in prison until he talks or until the grand jury's term expires. Grand jury terms last a year, but can twice be extended for three months.
Bonds said he was happy commissioner Bud Selig was in the stands Friday night.
``We haven't talked in a while,'' Bonds said. ``But I have respect for Bud, like I said before. ... Bud has always been kind to me, he has always been nice to my father. I like Bud.''
