Government Seeks Access to Baseball Players' Steroid Tests

As part of its investigation of the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative (BALCO), the government seized the 2003 urine samples of hundreds of major league baseball players pursuant to a search warrant for the laboratory responsible for testing the samples.  An AP story (here) notes that the government has appealed the district court's decision barring the government from using the samples because they were outside the warrant, which only authorized the seizure of ten samples.  With the BALCO case largely finished, with only one remaining defendant who has pled not guilty, why does the government continue to fight this issue?  Maybe it wants to double-check Rafael Palmeiro's sample.
