Everything HGH (AKA The Plot Thickens)

Flame me all you want for this, but would anyone really be that surprised if Pujols got linked to steroids/HGH? He's a freakish HR hitter who came out of nowhere; he's a giant of a man; and he's lost more hair than your average 26-year old. I'm not trying to speculate that he either has or hasn't done steroids, but I will say that it wouldn't exactly shock me to find out he's juiced up.
Is there anything fluffier than a cloud?
If there is, I don't want to know about it.

Why not? If Bonds were chasing the homerun record, and was only reported to be on speed, I'm fairly sure we would have the same number of Bonds hater threads.



I compleatly disagree. If it had of came out that Bonds was using speed it would have never been mentioned again. Speed dosent make you hit a baseball farther than you could ever dream of hitting it before you took it.

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

Surprised, No. I wouldn't be surprised if anyone in MLB was linked to steroids/HGH right now. Disappointed, Yes. Pujols seems like one of the good guys.

Giambi's game dropped because he got sick, first the tumor than the bad stomach worms.... He's back now, and doing well, almost certainly clean.

MLB can't suspend anybody solely based on the affidavit. They would need actual evidence to do so.

I think if it is proven then they should retroactively remove all his statistics from my fantasy leagues. (How in the world did I not get him on a single team this year???)

After that I hope they finger Aramis Ramirez for using HGH and retroactively remove all his statistics as well. (How in the world did I end up with him on nearly all of my teams this year???)

It makes sense - it works and it's legal. I used to work with a guy about 15 years ago who was an amateur body builder (he once won the heavyweight championship). I don't know what he took for building muscle mass (legal or illegal I can't say) but I do know what he took for energy because I used to work out with him occasionly - before his workout he would fill his water bottle with about 10 oz of cold water and I can't remember the exact amount but he would put about 8 or 10 big spoonfuls of instant coffee in it and shake it up and chug it! Seemed to work for him.


could be he was just after caffeine. caffeine is a legal stimulant. excessive levels used to be banned by olympic sports but i believe its now considered acceptable.


That's what I mean - why not just use something like that instead of a greenie

Don't kid yourself, greenies work A LOT better. The military use greenies for long missions and other situations when sleep is not necessarily an option. :-D ;-D
