I never said anything about him taking steroids. Though the possibility of a trade and his numbers plummeting is a very real possibility. 1B is not a deeper position, there are more higher quality players at 3B than there are at 1B. Come on, you are talking about Sweeney and Palmerio? Bench players at best. Whenever a guy like Chipper could be the 11th or 12th player at a postition taken, that is a deep, deep position.
Cubs, I'm relatively new here but I follow baseball pretty closely and the whole steroids issue as well. I am curious as to how many people will show up completely different from their past. But I have never heard anyone accusing Helton of using steroids anywhere. He isn't muscular at all either. In fact, he looks exactly like he did when he broke into the league.
Sweeney and Palmeiro are not bench players unless you are playing in an 8 player league.
Don't take it personally. I'm just trying to be as objective as possible here.
