This is what happens when you embarrass MLB by saying "we" instead of "I". Stuff like this tends to "slip" out into the public.

Giambi and Bonds are both #25. Coincidence? I think not.

Also, #25 is Rafael Palmeiro, Mark McGwire, Troy Glaus (6'5" 250lbs), Jim Thome (6'3" 250lbs), Andruw Jones (notice how he bulked up in recent years?), Jerry Hairston, Jr. (received Hgh and other steroids in the Gary Matthews, Jr. bust), Austin Kearns (6'3", 245lbs.), etc.

I am onto something here...

This was a pretty interesting observation. Nice work Detective WH! Anyway I personally dont care when players test positive for amphetamines. Its a little upseting that it happened last year, but quite frankly players used to take those like freakin M&Ms. It is amusing that this came out after Giambi ultimately admitted to steroid abuse...

Getting caught taking amphetamines in baseball is like getting caught smoking pot at a Dead show. When the HGH news was flying, many retired players talked about how speed has been a clubhouse staple since they played.

Selig's out to make An Example of him.

GIambi failed an amphetamines test. Maybe he should apologize again.

Amphetamines?!? Wow, next thing you know MLB is going to make it against the rules to have illegal weapons or crank or something else that is illegal in this country anyway. B-)
