Nope, I missed it. :-/
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

well I know this will cause a storm ... but here goes ..

well basically, he claimed, that Balco was providing nutritional supplements specifally designed for the individual athlete from their own Blood samples. Everybody already knows that. But the supplements were in a tablet form with many things inside, vitamens, nutrients and the such and in some cases even THG. He claimed that the athletes didn't know it was in there cus nobody new its existed .... Basically he was selling tainted vitamens.

Do not succumb to Fox News :-P !

Tainted vitamens...that report makes BALCO sound comparable to the dealers who cut extasy.

Thanks wveres.

The Padres are close enough to $50 million. I think they are inbetween $50 and $60 million off the top of my head. Remember, their starting pitching staff is signed to relitively small contracts, making Giles, Klesko, Nevin and Hoffman the bulk of their payroll.

I personally don't buy the claim of being oblivious to the fact that there was a steroid in the vitamin. The agent's just doing his job of saving face (of the players', that is).
