Also, many of those same players had a bridge that they wanted to sell the technicians handling the testing.

It's also something that isn't very plausible, either.

You're actually going to hold on to that slim possibility instead of facing the facts here?

It's not like it matters if the majority of those Red Sox teams were on steroids. Everybody was (and many still are).

That parenthetical comment could have said (and MANNY still is) and it would have been much funnier. :-D

I am definitely going to agree with what I think it was mweir or yoda said about Bonds accomplishments. The guy deserves every ounce of credit for how he played the game, best player I have ever seen(I'm 26 so not too much history there). Also on this list aren't the players testing for substances that were banned after the 2003-2004 season? So it's not necessarily roids unless I misheard.

Bonds was that much better than everyone else. He was simply an amazing player.

Former Sox player Nomar Garciaparra, now with the A’s, expressed anger shared by many major leaguers over the handling of the 2003 testing. He told reporters after yesterday’s game that the process was so flawed that innocent players may be tarnished by “false positives.’’ He also asserted that some players asked to be categorized as testing positive because they wanted to trigger mandatory testing the following year.


Who knows if that was Ortiz's case but interesting none the less.


Keep the faith!!!1
