Former Mets Clubhouse Employee Pleads Guilty to Distributing Steroids

The steroids scandals that have rocked baseball the past few years may take a new turn based on reports that a former clubhouse employee of the New York Mets agreed to plead guilty to distributing steroids and money laundering.  The plea came in the Northern District of California, where the BALCO investigation has continued with the grand jury inquiry into whether San Francisco Giants slugger Barry Bonds committed perjury in 2003 when he testified about his use of performance-enhancing drugs.  According to a report on (here), Kirk J. Radomski worked at Shea Stadium for the Mets from 1985 to 1995, and after BALCO was shut down he became a source of steroids for major league players.  The article states that he began to cooperate in the investigation after a search of his home, and that his cell phone records include the numbers of current and former players.  This development could mean a substantial expansion of the federal grand jury's steroids investigation.  Whether any of the players involved in the BALCO investigation might also be linked to Radomski remains to be seen.
