Where you in on the conference call? Or did an anonymous source tell you this?

Along with the trainers, Bonds brought a 27-inch television and a $3,000 vibrating lounge chair....the chair became the centerpiece of Bond's wing of the clubhouse, which expanded to include four lockers


What else does he need? You think this would be ok in New York?

It also mentions he slept on the trainers table when the other players needed it....what a team guy


What does this have to do with anything? And how old is this?.....this was a cafe discussion about 3 yrs ago.......

Basically.
Dextroamphetamine is a powerful psychostimulant which produces increased wakefulness, energy and self-confidence in association with decreased fatigue and appetite. It works primarily by inducing the release of the neurotransmitters dopamine and norepinephrine from their storage areas in nerve terminals. Other common names for dextroamphetamine include d-amphetamine, dexamphetamine, (S)-(+)-amphetamine, and brand names such as Dexedrine and Dextrostat.

Jim Bouton makes mention of Dexedrine use in major league baseball (under the street name "greenies") in his book Ball Four (1970).

ESPN.com and just about everyone else is reporting it. And why would Axelrod, Sweeney's agent, be compelled to say something?

I am pretty sure it happened and there was a positive test going by what has been written. But go on believing that it didnt.

Nothing can take down Bonds, not even a positive test.

Keep in mind that these things were all over clubhouses heading into 2006, and still may have been widely available. It wouldn't be surprising for a veteran like Mark Sweeney to still have them in his locker.

Whether Sweeney has them in his locker is his own problem. Unless Sweeney forced them down Bonds throat, there is absolutely no excuse for Bonds to take them from someone else's locker, and put them in his own body without knowing what it was.

They are reporting that the NY Daily is reporting it.

Have I stated that I don't believe it?

I'm saying it's stupid to assume it's true and make such statements as you have until you know.

Bonds is already "taken down". So what are referring to?
