Congressional Steriod Meeting summary

Postby curious_george_43545 » Thu Mar 17, 2005 6:44 pm

McGwire cried, refused to say he never did steriods, Palmerio straight denied ever using them

Schilling-"It's not that serious of a problem"
Palmerio-"I didn't do steroids"
McGwire-"I don't want to talk about the past, I'm here to talk about the future/I can't comment on that/I'm not gonna talk about that past"
Sosa-"What they said"
Canceso-"Blah blah blah"

No players named, no questions really answered, no closer to a solution. Just for anyone who missed it ;-D

I liked when McGwire said: My lawyers won't let me talk then started crying like a baby.

More like:

Schilling: "We should let the present testing program run its course, and I think this program will eliminate steroids." Also, "I've never, in my professional baseball career, seen anybody use steriods. I have had suspicions about maybe 5-10 former teammates."

Palmerio: "I never did steriods, and I've never seen steriod use."

McGwire: "I will not say anything, even if it doesn't concern me. I will say the same thing over and over even when its not related to the question"

Sosa: "I never did steriods"

Canseco: "Steriods is a huge problem, and the current policy will never eliminate it (although he admitted to not knowing what the policy is)."

I think Palmeiro did best, he just popped up there and flat out denied using steroids and essentially called Canseco a liar. Much better testimony than other guys who either ducked questions or denied the problem.

Was that the one saying "we do need to look at the past" and then gave examples of Watergate, Enron etc saying that those people couldn't just say "we don't want to talk about the past" and baseball can't either?

I believe that (the man I'm talking about) was a Rep (R) from Indiana but I could be wrong. That speech though was very strong and was pretty much a direct attack at McGwire.

I agree acs, Mr. Serano's speech might have been the best of the day.

Talking about how he has a McGwire rookie card that he'll never sell and will pass on to his son; how he's saddened that the Bash Brothers were broken up in front of everyone; how saddened he is that the players were uncomfortable and that everyone had to be at the stupid meeting. Came across as a genuine baseball fan and I think sounded the most "everyman" of the whole group.
