T. Jones Accuses Biggio of Using Banned Substance

The Astros always had little trays of ice water for guys to soak their feet when they weren't on the field, but Craig Biggio went one better than that. On this day, he put a cabbage leaf under his hat to act as a heat shield.

If Bonds had a sense of humor (of which there is very little evidence to date, although the Paula Abdul schtick was kind of drolll...) he would be packin' cabbage into his hat...

Throw him out of baseball... never let this cheating POS back in!!!!!!!!!!

That's a pretty funny story.

Where's the proof that Cabbage Leafs actually help you cool down. I mean you have to at least have the ability to cool down a little before even putting the cabbage leafs there.

I heard that that substance redirects the ball so it hits him every time he uses it!

Extra Mass = Extra Gravity towards biggio

Gravitational mass

Gravitational mass is the mass of an object measured using the effect of a gravitational field on the object.

The concept of gravitational mass rests on Newton's law of gravitation. Let us suppose we have two objects A and B, separated by a distance |rAB|. The law of gravitation states that if A and B have gravitational masses MA and MB respectively, then each object exerts a gravitational force on the other, of magnitude

|f| = {G M_A M_B \over |r_{AB}|^2}

where G is the universal gravitational constant. The above statement may be reformulated in the following way: if g is the acceleration of a reference mass at a given location in a gravitational field, then the gravitational force on an object with gravitational mass M is

f = Mg. \,

This is the basis by which masses are determined by weighing. In simple bathroom scales, for example, the force f is proportional to the displacement of the spring beneath the weighing pan (see Hooke's law), and the scales are calibrated to take g into account, allowing the mass M to be read off. Note that a balance (see the subheading within Weighing scale) as used in the laboratory or the health club measures gravitational mass; only the spring scale measures weight.
