Matt Morris on roids?

haha yes very funny. anyways, i don't really see steroids helping a pitcher overly much, unless it's for an offseason training regimen to prevent injury. but for actual arm strength, do steroids actually help a pitcher gain velocity?

This is funny.

I heard that 98% of Americans are favorable to the idea of Puppies and Rainbows, and that comes from a former member of the Puppy and Rainbow community, but that's as far as I'll go. I heard that Piazza and um, let's see, ok, Ty Wiggington were lovers. My buddy's best friend's sister's, step cousin sells beer at Shea, but that's as far as I'll go.


Hilarious? yes. Misguided in this particular instance? yes, but still funny. And no all this razzing is not going to make me break confidence of source. Believe what you want, I have no reason to blurt random conjecture.

CrimeDog, pitchers don't take roids to bulk up. The likely accelerator/decelerator imbalance is very bad and leads to torn labrums. Apparently it can contribute to velocity, but I haven't seen anything 100% on that.

supposedly another benefit for a pitcher besides velocity is reducing the recovery time between starts/appearances. i have no idea though since i have never taken them nor i am a pitcher.

yea gotta say no on this one. This guy doesn't look bulked up at all, and let's remember it's not like his fastball was his bread and butter, his curveball was what dominated.

Misguided????? Even funnier!!!! Are you saying you don't like Puppies and Rainbows? Cause if you don't, man, you are in some serious trouble. Here is my source:

From Yahooligan's

Hello, my name is Chelsea and I like Puppies and Rainbows.



See, man, at least I can substantiate my source, and therefore you should all beleive me. BELEIVE ME!!!!!!!

Dude, even if you revealed your source, no one would beleive you. Here is a site to help you with some of your problems:

http://www.puppyrainbowhatred.com
http://www.unsubstantiatedaccusations.com
http://www.neverbeajournalist.com

I hope these help. Good Luck, or am I being Misguided? lol

Edited for typos, I'm done Flaming you, unless you would like to continue, because I think Gary Coleman and Emanuel Lewis are on roids too. Mr. Drummond and Mr. Popodopolous told me.

Alot of people don't understand what steroids do to people. If you take steriods it doesn't mean you get big, you still have to work out to get big. Steroids just help muscles recover quicker so you can get back at pounding the weights sooner, less recovery time. Steroids helps you recover from injury or muscle sorness etc, just because you take steroids it doesn't mean your going to be big!

I'm sure you understand why nobody here believes you; can you blame us? If we don't believe actual players like Jose Canseco, why would we believe somebody we know nothing about? Without even having a source? I hope you didn't expect us to take your word for it.

It's not a question of whether or not Morris is on Roids, it's the manner in which Rugby delivers his information. I know this because he told me.

Puppies are OK. Rainbows+no pot of gold=overrated.

Right, I have imaginary conversations with respectable veterans who still work in baseball all the time. Have fun drafting the bum. Unless he devlops a wicked changeup to compensate, he's done.
