I'll never go there with a player until they pee in the cup and fail the test or have the FBI show up at their house and bust them for possession. We can all think what we want to but until there's solid proof I'm not going to sully people's reputations. Sure, it's possible that Todd Helton took steroids. It's just as possible that he's just aging poorly. I don't want to accuse anyone of doing something like that until it's 100% certain that they did.
This is not a trial, it is public opinion. If you want proof beyond a reasonable doubt, you are not likely to ever get it. Helton is not going to pee in any cup if he thinks he will get caught. Just because no one has a video tape of Helton using the stuff does not mean he didn't. Same with anyone else on the highly suspicious list. No one ever caught Sammy Sosa or Bonds either and we all know they are guilty as can be. Giambi was never caught either and technically never admitted using roids...he just winked it to the press. If you believe these guys are innocent until proven guilty in the court of public opinion, meaning you really think they were clean, then you live in an alternate reality.
I would not bet the house that Helton is dirty, but if I was laying odds on it, I would saying the odds are heavily in favor of him being a cheater and a liar. 31 year olds playing in Coors should not all of a sudden lose their power. And there were rumors about Heltonm using roids previously that he denied.
