SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Barry Bonds had a pointed message for the grand jury: Go ahead, investigate me. After arriving at spring training Tuesday, more fit than in recent years following a productive winter of conditioning, the slugger insisted he’s unfazed by all his off-the-field issues and is ready to resume his pursuit of the home run record. “Tom and his family are excited about the pregnancy, and want to thank everyone who has shown support, and particularly for their consideration of Tom’s privacy,” Brady’s agent, Don Yee, told The Associated Press. It was the first comment from Brady’s camp since it was disclosed that actress Bridget Moynahan, the former girlfriend of New England’s three-time Super Bowl winning quarterback, is three months pregnant. Her publicist, Christina Papadopoulous, has said Brady is the father. Brady and Moynahan split up late last year after a three-year relationship. Brady, a two-time Super Bowl MVP, has since been seen with lingerie model Gisele Bundchen, and media outlets have reported they are dating.

Let them, they’ve been doing it this long,” Bonds said after his first workout this year with the San Francisco Giants. “It doesn’t weigh on me at all – at all. It’s just you guys talking. It’s just media conversation.” Heytvelt faces felony drug charges SPOKANE, Wash. – Suspended Gonzaga center Josh Heytvelt was charged with felony possession of a controlled substance after a recent arrest during which police said they found hallucinogenic mushrooms in his car.
