Here's what he had to say:

Sanchez said he was surprised by the suspension, adding that he uses milkshakes and multivitamins to build his energy -- and blaming the positive test on something he bought over the counter.

"I'm going to fight it, because I've never taken steroids or anything like that," said Sanchez, who was released by Detroit in mid-March and signed by the Devil Rays.

Blah, blah, blah whatever. Nobody wants to hear Sanchez' or anyone elses stories and when you get tested positive, theres a 99% chance it's true. If anyone saw Pudge get interviewed during that Tigers ST game a couple days ago you know he was talking out of his @$$ when asked about it.

I feel bad for ASan, he could barely register extrabase hits roided up, how is he going to hit it out of the infield now? Let him use, the guy's career is in jeopardy

Hmmm. Milkshakes and vitamins....I wonder if that is like flaxseed oil.

There it is on ESPN. Well, thats the end of his major league career. TB will cut him, and nobody is going to want him.

That must have been the reason for his recent power surge.. :-?

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

LMAO, this is a good way to sum it up.

I wonder what sort of stores sell stuff over the counter that tilts the test-o-meter? Since he's from Cuba, it's not as if he'd be going 'home' for the winter and getting something fishy there.

I bet you could find supplements at GNC that "tilt the meter." I am not familar with what substances are banned in MLB, but I know basically the whole store is off limits to the NFL guys. Remember what happened Julius Peppers a two years ago.

Just goes to show you how well the press has spun steriods, now doesn't it.

how come we havent seen any speed burners on any of these lists people like to make up in here.

and technically, the first person caught using steriods was a pitcher in the Angels organization and that was last preseason. (his name escapes me) ..

BTW the pitcher was busted for using Andro!
