Funny how even suggesting that Prior used something resorts in flaming (keep it civil by the way, or there will locking and warnings handed out) and condemning Bonds is basically encouraged by the masses.
Funny that there's nothing but rumor and innuendo linking both.
Exactly my point. I'm not going to debate anything because I don't know it for a fact, but I can tell you one thing he doesn't look like a normal pitcher. His calves are the size of a running backs for heavens sake. I probably shouldn't have made the comment but I do believe the reason his tendons are all messed up is because his muscles grew to fast and his tendon's did not keep up. Call me a hater if you want.
If I had to bet one way or the other I definetly would say that he has taken them though.
right there with ya'. i don't think it's the only reason...Dusty is a known pitcher butcher, and those fluke injuries obviously had their impact....in some ways, he seems like something of a headcase...maybe that happened after the injuries, i can't remember. seems like a confluence of factors, but for my money, i'd put PEDs right there along with the other factors. obviously, just an opinion though.
Well, now the well mannered and educated USC product is a headcase. I can't believe how much unsubstantiated crap has been thrown around about Prior here.
moltisanti, you have some serious manlove for prior. by "headcase" i didn't intend to intimate that he's a jerk...it was not a statement on his manners, but more on the perception locally that he's unable/unwilling to pitch through minor pain. whether or not that reputation is deserved, it is there, so that's what i was referencing. i've got no emotional attachment for or against him...you on the other hand, seem to consider any negative opinion of him a personal affront...
