SAN JOSE, Calif. — In a legal development that could further fuel the ongoing perjury probe of San Francisco Giants slugger Barry Bonds, a federal appeals court Wednesday ruled that federal investigators can use the names and urine samples of about 100 Major League Baseball players who tested positive for steroids three years ago.
A divided panel of the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected the privacy arguments of the players' union, raising the possibility the names of baseball players who tested positive for steroids in the league's 2003 anonymous testing program could become public as the government continues to probe the fallout from the Balco steroids case.

OAKLAND, Calif. — The Raiders' offense Saturday night featured a different quarterback, a backup running back, different players at the guard positions, the third and fifth wide receivers as starters, and a new tight end, as well as a new offensive coordinator.
Anybody else have a suggestion for coach Art Shell? He now has tried just about everything through 15 games. To no avail. Try though they may, each game the Raiders add another inglorious chapter to a season destined to be remembered as the one the offense forgot.
