[quote="AcidRock23]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.[/quote]

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.[/quote]

I can just picture it now.

All Commissioners around the world wil be adding rules into their fantasy baseball league that address steroid issues. Maybe we add a new category and a 5x6 league using steroids as a cat.

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!


Derrick Turnbow and Termel Sledge both tested positive last year.

Because they aren't breaking records, therefore no one cares.

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.


It's not 99% chance it's true. Fasle positive rates on these tests run from about 5 to 15 percent, so anywhere form 1 out of every 20 to one out of every 7 will show steroid use when none took place.
