Man that's a crazy comment. I'm no doctor but I'm pretty sure these parasites have nothing to do with steroids. It's fun to bash the Yankees but I don't think it's too cool to be making light of Giambi's situation. Just my $.02.
Agreed. The parasites have nothing to do with steriods or lack thereof. Lets all hope he's ok.
Are any of you acutally qualified to say that setriod use has no effect on Giambi's condition? Study the side effects and I bet my .02 cents that roid use can leave you mure suseptable to certian diseases/viruses
Congratulations. You won $.02. High-dosage steroid use can lead to a weakened immune system which can lead to parasite infestation. And I guess this also explains why Kevin Brown has it? Their wives have it too so their immune systems were supressed due to high steroids dosage also, right?
I don't doubt for a second that Giambi used/uses steroids. But it seems a bit asinine to make light of the situation because steroids could be the cause when there is just as good a chance that they are not.
