Lets forget about KB.
Say you suspect pitcher X of using steroids. Why would he - what do roids help him do? Do they increase pitcher X's velocity? Now, what would happen if pitcher X stopped taking them?
If I remember correctly, from what I've heard, roids help pitchers recover quickly, and have the most impact for relievers. Gagne is the biggest alleged-using pitcher around.

Yanks04, you are the leader of the "what have you done for me lately crowd." Hey, if you were a Sox fan, you would have benched Bellhorn and perhaps Damon after the first three games of the ALCS. Why aren't you running Arod and Sheff out of town--they too blew the ALCS with horrible hitting the last four games. Or, the biggest choker of them all --Rivera. He had the ball at the end of the game, with the lead, on back to back nights and blew it.
Right? Run them all out!
Seriously, though, KB is a very good pitcher. I would love to have him as my fourth or fifth best starter. You should want to keep him.

So, fellas, what happens to a pitcher who has used steroids once he stops using them? I think this has to be a concern of ours at this point in time, right? Its a very relevant question given the landscape of MLB today. What pitchers should we be concerned about this with - and again - what is a common reaction to being off the juice?
