And Palmeiro swore to Congress he never ever took roids. You believe what everyone says?
Bagwell has long been suuspected of being a juicer. Fair or not that is simply the way it is. He certainly is never going to admit it and sure he may want to play or think he can still play. If you are Stros management, what would you want to do? Stink with an aging vet that is past his prime, grossly overpaid and probably was a roid-boy in his prime or go with Berkman at first and the kid Lane in the OF? Lane will out hit Bagwell now. And he plays the OF, allowing them to keep Berkman and his knee safely at 1b. It is a no brainer for Houston imo, esp if they can get insurance to pay most of the money Bagwell is owed.
