I think you guys forget that roids make you run faster also. It all depends on what muscles you work. WHy do you think Marion Jones or Ben Johnson were so fast?

Our first sacrifical lamb in the steroid testing era...interesting that he would be the first.

I liked your thought process Amazinz. Maybe they knew something no one else did! ;-D

If I was to say that this will hurt 1 of my fantasy teams, I would be 100% truthful. :-o

I don't quite believe that. The Brewers got rid of him dirt cheap over a year ago because he was so bad in the field and basically uncoachable at the plate. While he did hit for a decent average he wouldn't listen to a word the coahces said and was not a contact hitter with RISP. Not a team player at all.

I cannot believe that one of the major sports sites (ESPN or Sportsline) doesn't have this on the frontapage anywhere. I have seen it on Yahoo.

Way to be on the ball cordscords!!! ;-D

I hate to say it, but I don't think he ever plays again. He's not a star, so the team losing him doesn't lose much. Who would want to have this guy now? I don't know...I'm probably over-reacting, but do you guys think he'll be playing in 10 games?
