I don't know about that. Canseco (if you choose to believe him) mentioned something about A-Rod and steroids a while back so to say there's never been discussion about A-Rod and steroids is inaccurate.

I must've missed that. No whiff of streroids around A-Rod that I heard then.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

Sad, are you kidding me, it's been the most exciting era in baseball, and helped fantasy baseball grow by leaps and bounds. ;-D

not surprised. Now if name Mark Grace appears on a list than ya got me.

Seriously does it surprise anyone if any player who hit 40+ HR's in the late 90's or later juiced?

I blame Buddy boy Selig. The explosion in homers started coming shortly after the time the strike ended. They wanted fans back and what greater way to do that than with the long ball? Selig and company just turned a blind eye to the situation to bring baseball back and in turn line their greedy wallets.

Just proves that the A-Fraud is a fraud in more ways then most suspected. Just another reason for Yankee fans to dislike the narcissistic, choking prima donna.

"No comment" from A-Fraud by the way. That is becoming his favorite line.

This is never gonna end until Bonds' records are erased. That is all Bud wants and until he gets it baseball is gonna be drug thru the mud time and time again with stories like these. But the NFl is as clean as they come, gimme a break.

How could he get suspended or disciplined for a test that MLB administered itself 6 years ago that was a survey? :-?
