MLB's Next Banned Substance...

Randy Johnson, Tom Glavine, Greg Maddux, etc. look out!
Viagra Enhances Athletic Performance
Viagra is a performance-enhancing drug, but few suspected that its effectiveness extended to public athletic performances. In June, 2006, a study published in the Journal of Applied Physiology reported that "Sildenafil (Viagra) significantly improved the cardiovascular and exercise performance measures of trained cyclists at high altitude" The drug helped some cyclists improve by as much as 45%, while others received no benefits. At sea level, there was no improvement. Viagra causes lung tissues to relax, which improves blood flow and increases oxygen transport to muscles, which is a problem at higher altitudes.

I think it would give a whole new meaning to the term "headfirst" slide

If a game goes into extra innings, please contact your doctor.

I'm a little confused as to how this study was conducted. As we all know Viagra has multiple effects besides cardiovascular improvement. :-?

Thats all I'll say...

Seems to me that it would be a bit easier to tell which players are using than with other substances...

MRPs probably more likely to use Cialis, so they can be ready when the moment is right.
