I still can't believe Ortiz hasn't been out-ed yet.

Re: Manny Suspended for performance enhancing drugs

I thought it was mandatory to use drugs in baseball.

Well it's nice, because those damn Red Sox fans will shut up now about A-Rod...

Re: Manny Suspended for performance enhancing drugs



But really anyone surprised that BIG-POPUP is a roider must have their head buried in the sand.

Any boston fan yapping about A-rod must be really clueless considering Boston traded for & signed Arod (only to have the inept MLPA void the contract then go to the Yankees).

A lucky turn of events for Boston to be honest... glen

Re: Manny Suspended for performance enhancing drugs

These headlines are going to lose a lot of impact soon... it's just a lot easier to assume everyone during the steroid era was juicing.

Seriously, are people still surprised by this? "Oh no, Papi was on roids? What's next, you going to say Moises Alou was juicing when he hit 40 home runs at like 40 years old? Kenny Rogers didn't just have dirt on his hand? OMG" :-/

Why would Kenny Roders do steroids? He is the Chuck Norris of music already.

It is important to remember that I am English and therefore have no idea about any of this.

Re: Manny Suspended for performance enhancing drugs

you can bet the farm consummate loser Kenny Rogers roided up.

a month ago i heard on a local ESPN radio discussion of "the list" being published. they wouldn't talk names or anything (obviously for legal purposes) but you can see that list all over the place like here:

http://thesteroidera.blogspot.com/

i did see one team-by-team listing and there were no real surprises. then factor of the 103 or so who failed the 1000 tested were TOLD AHEAD OF TIME WHEN THE TESTING WOULD HAPPEN AND TO PREPARE/CLEANSE. ...glen

If you are going to sit in the stands and watch, then nothing beets the NHL IMHO.
