Sosa Tested Positive; Save the Women & Children!

Postby StlSluggers » Tue Jun 16, 2009 4:44 pm

NYTimes.com wrote:Sammy Sosa, who joined with Mark McGwire in 1998 in a celebrated pursuit of baseball’s single-season home run record, is among the players who tested positive for a performance-enhancing drug in 2003, according to lawyers with knowledge of the drug-testing results from that year.

I tell you what... McGwire's starting to look like the genius for not saying a damn thing under oath.

Who'da thunk it?

2 down, 102 to go.

I really don't think the list should be published, but it is going to happen. If not all at once, then in drips that drag things out.

Also, didn't I read somewhere that there is a reasonable chance that some of the 104 are false positives? That means someone will be on the list who will deny using steroids, be telling the truth, and still be considered a juicer.

I'm pretty numb by the entire steroid era. Just test as much as you can, have real penalties for those who are caught, understand there will always be some players who take the risk and therefore some who won't get caught and just move on. That is what every other sport does.
There are a few things with the New York Yankees that never change. That's pride, tradition, and most of all, we have the greatest fans in the world. -Derek Jeter, 9/21/08 -- last words from old Yankee Stadium

ugh if they're gonna list names, list everyone's names from the list, not singling people out.

Who are "they," though? It's not as if MLB is releasing these names. If the New York Times had more names, they'd release them. Do you think MLB should release all of the names because a couple have leaked?

Yes.

2 names have been leaked already, the damage has been done, its going to be better if its done all at once than one name every couple of months.

i'm talking about the law firm or whatever people that are leaking this stuff, not the MLB. but heck why not MLB, it's unfair to pick out names anyways.

Who is leaking these names, that's what I want to know. I have a suspicion why we're getting a name at a time - I suspect someone is being paid for that information, and if it's the NY Times, that's big-time frowned upon for news outlets.

MLB should just release the stupid list. At this point, is anyone surprised by this? Anyone?

Ya say Sammy went from a size 16 neck to a size 28 neck in just a few years by eating right and dedication in the gym? Yeah. We all believe that. ;-7

Preempt these ridiculous stories by "leaking" the whole stupid list, have it done, and let's get on with our lives, K?
