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.

I thought Sledge was the Olympics? I thought thats what it was, not MLB testing.

Suspicions arose concerning Sanchez' steriod usage when, in a recent game at the plate, Sanchez laid down a beautiful drag bunt that caromed off the right-center field wall.

Oh, is April Fools over? :-D

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.


But you can rest assured it will almost 100% "career ruined" when MLB publishes the names. And if it is found out that Sanchez didn't take anything, it won't be front page news thats for sure. People don't "Care" about that, just so long as they get to point thier finger. ;-)

I don't know about Sledge, but I'm 100% positive Turnbow was busted by the Olympics. I just read an article about him a couple days ago.
