That's such BS I can't believe you wrote it. Hey I know, I'll allege you use PEDs, then get you in a serious t-bone collision with a stout rock running at full speed toward you, and then I'll stand over you and scorn you for using PEDs because you aren't the same anymore. :-t

Wherefore art thee, double standard. :-D

Funny how even suggesting that Prior used something resorts in flaming (keep it civil by the way, or there will locking and warnings handed out) and condemning Bonds is basically encouraged by the masses.

Funny that there's nothing but rumor and innuendo linking both.

Exactly my point. I'm not going to debate anything because I don't know it for a fact, but I can tell you one thing he doesn't look like a normal pitcher. His calves are the size of a running backs for heavens sake. I probably shouldn't have made the comment but I do believe the reason his tendons are all messed up is because his muscles grew to fast and his tendon's did not keep up. Call me a hater if you want.

If I had to bet one way or the other I definetly would say that he has taken them though.

I wasn't aware the whole Balco thing and grand jury testimony was considered "rumor and innuendo". But that is for another topic.

I think this is the end of what should have been a brilliant career. Whether it was the freak injuries, the workload, or a combination, Mark Prior will never be what he should have been. :~(

right there with ya'. i don't think it's the only reason...Dusty is a known pitcher butcher, and those fluke injuries obviously had their impact....in some ways, he seems like something of a headcase...maybe that happened after the injuries, i can't remember. seems like a confluence of factors, but for my money, i'd put PEDs right there along with the other factors. obviously, just an opinion though. O:-)

I don't know if you have read my posts regarding Bonds, but I certainly don't have a double standard here. Besides, Prior hasn't been found to use PEDs and Bonds has(amphetamines), no? So your claim of rumor and innuendo yadda yadda yadda

Well, now the well mannered and educated USC product is a headcase. I can't believe how much unsubstantiated crap has been thrown around about Prior here.
