Clemens on the juice? (speculative article)

Postby krunchyfrogg » Sat Jun 24, 2006 2:25 pm

Roger Clemens was given a 50 game suspension for steroids. Many interested parties thought it would be best if that information was not released publicly for obvious reasons (P.R. already has their hands full with Barry Bonds.) He says he will decide in three weeks, but his agent says he could decide in 10 days (that’s when Astros have played their 50th game). You’ll see him in the Cardinals series

yea that's probably as weak a source as you can have, but in all fairness it is saying it's all speculation.

i could see bud selig pulling somthing like this. i mean clemens being busted for steriods would be amazingly damaging to baseball.

This has been out there for awhile, ever since Clemens signed with the Astros about 50 days into the season.

I've always figured Clemens took steroids during his career, but who knows about this theory...I mean didn't he just pitch in the WBC?

Doesn't Clemens have to serve his suspension while on an active roster? He wasn't on any roster so I'm thinking he wasn't suspended.

Also, I believe that it is written in the rules that all players suspended for steroids must have the name aired in public.

Are any dominant players above suspicion? Not really, not high profile ones anyway. Pujols ducked it up until this year, but he seem squeaky clean. A-Rod is the most high profile player I can think of who seems completely above suspicion.

This isn't really new.

one of the most convincing articles ive heard against this was that international competition has MUCH strictly drug testing policies, so the fact he was eligible to play in the WBC this season makes me feel like he didnt test postive any time recently, or if at all.


:-t to steroid speculation. if they took them, let them admit it themselves or test positive. other than that, i dont wanna hear it!

EXACTLY! That's why Bonds pulled out.

Also, if Roger had used juice, his body would be breaking down at age 43. Look at guys we've known to take roids and the effects on their bodies which are now falling apart...Bonds, McGuire, even Giambi can't stay healthy. Roger is healthier than ever. He's just a hard worker.

It's also not like Clemens had a sudden spike in his velocity, which has gradually declined. It's his command that has kept him around, and it's not like there's a drug for that.

I agree Clemens body would have fallen apart if he was juicing. he's just a corn fed texan
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment
