Rocket on Roids - Buy or Sell?

Postby realfan05 » Tue May 10, 2005 6:48 pm

So now the talk is that the Rocket may be or was on roids based on performance and age - It is sad that we even have to discuss this. What do you guys think about these rumors? Same would apply for Nomar as well.

Look this is what we are faced with - I believe the rocket is clean and I took him yesterday as my starter. I live in LA and in the LA times they are bringing up his name

LA times is a rag.
besides, when you make statements like you did in your original post, have the decency to cite your sources instead of mentioning some nebulous "rumors"

he just seems too competitive to cheat. it's not about just getting the results with him, it's about fairly and straight up just beating your opponents. that's my impression anyway.

i agree he is not just physically dominating but even more so mentally dominating. best pitcher I have ever seen and I would hate to see his name drug into this mess.

scary truth

Postby realfan05 » Tue May 10, 2005 7:16 pm

The truth is that this is what we have to deal with - questioning the last 20 years. BUT AT THE SAME TIME I AM GLAD WE ARE DEALING WITH THIS NOW INSTEAD OF 20 YEARS FROM NOW WHEN ALL OF THE RECORDS FROM OUR LEGENDS would be wiped out (sorry about the caps) I aso think baseball should give the single season HR record should be returned to Maris. agree?

so do your agenda is to bash bary bonds?
this topic has nothing to do with fantasy baseball why are you even bringing it up here?
find an appropriate forum.
also, the sort of witchhunt you are attempting to start has been considered somewhat illegal for a while now.
not a good way to make your first few posts at the cafe :-t :-t :-t :-t :-t :-t :-t :-t :-t :-t :-t
