Just the kind of influence you want around Albert Pujols. Good move, Cardinals.

Assuming Pujols is clean is assuming too much. Nobody is safe from steroid assumption when they put the numbers up like he has.

And yet he never tested positive. Interesting.

I, for one, am shocked by this turn of events.

Truly.

Were they even testing for anything back then? I thought the tests started in 2004 or something.

It's a fact that no one anywhere is particularly good at anything.

Supposedly been testing since 99. But whatever- MLB wanted the sluggers. I blame MLB 110%

wait... doesn't that mean he lied to a congressional panel? Isn't that a federal offense?

RevLovejoy: Why is he talking about the past?

Because the media would start hammering him about roid use as soon as spring training opens. By admitting it. he probably hopes to get the grilling over with.

They should permanently ban any athlete from ever getting into the hall of fame if they used steroids. And they should be scrubbed from the record books too. Make it like they never existed.
 
2010-01-11 03:50:10 PM  
If the Hall of Fame allows him in before Pete Rose, the Hall of Fame is a joke.

I'd wager the folks in St. Louis won't be surprised, either.

I thought he admitted to steroid use a while ago, but that they were legal.

Goodfella: Dammit, now my Donruss Mark McGwire rookie is going to go down in price in next month's Beckett.

I was just thinking something similar to that. I have a McGwire Pinnacle Mint silver coin somewhere that I'm sure has plummeted in value since 2005.

/Is Beckett still being printed?

Simply Earthshattering. Good thing such a stellar example of honesty and sportsmanship is being brought in to mentor Pujols and Holiday

I think someone took a look at which way his HoF votes were heading and suddenly got a case of situational self-serving conscience syndrome.

They were not banned specifically by MLB, but there were Federal laws prohibiting them.

It's ok. I'm a Yankee fan so the whole 61* burns my ass everytime someone brings it up. That asterisk should be for non-steroid players.
 
2010-01-11 03:52:20 PM  
This was a pretty straightforward admission. He didn't blame his cousin, or anyone else. He didn't say he didn't know what he was taking. He admitted it. Props for that.
 
2010-01-11 03:52:21 PM  
I'm only shocked that he admitted it.

A fraction of what it was worth in 1998.

Wow, steroids make you fat? His behavior lends your accusations belief, but his body, no way.

especially since he was having in the 3rd grade

Why? Did the MLB hold a gun to the back of your head? Or were you just a big, steroid using pussy like Raffy and others
