ARod tested positive for steriods in 2003

Recommended Posts

"Back then, [baseball] was a different culture. It was very loose. I was young, I was stupid, I was naïve. I wanted to prove to everyone I was worth being one of the greatest players of all time.

So...going to the Yankees meant that pressure was then alleviated and the need for PEDs went away?

Please.

So, um, has anyone asked why these supposedly anonymous random tests are not so anonymous anymore?

The union could have destroyed the names, no?

It would not surprise me in the least if the union gets de-ceritified.

What I heard the Federal government made them give them the names and samples.

He's one of the few major stars that has actually admitted it, though it's still not exactly "full responsibility".

Be interesting to see how the public reacts.

It really doesn't matter. This is just another step in MLB ruining itself. It may not be true that all major league guys are on the juice, but it sure appears to be that way to the average person.

Almost every dude I meet is into watching some kind of sport. For me it's football and hockey, others.. basketball and football. Whatever. Very rarely is it that I talk to someone my age who actually watches baseball.

To the people like me, and everyone I know... it's things like this that's just more and more reason to keep ignoring baseball.

What is really going on is average joe has had enough. From sports, to CEO's pay to you name it.

You cheat you don't get squat.I don't care what profession you are in. Don't whine to me about pressure, buck up and do it right or get out of the way.

I'm glad names are coming out. Don't do the crime if you can't do the crime.

And yes I know about MLB's lame rules or lackthereof last 10 yrs or so.

Too bad.

this.

agreed, there are probably a few more big names on this list. Especially if it was as rampant as Arod said it was in the early 2000's with trainers and such offering them to players. Which all the evidence points to this being the case which is sad for baseball and its fans.

I think the one common link is obvious...

players for the Rangers...

Conseco

Caminetti

J Gonzalez

Palmeiro

Gagne

K Brown

Pudge

and countless others....

Who owned the Rangers until 1998 and oversaw the training group that gave these players the steroids???? George W. Bush......the same guy who left the Rangers and became President and appointed none other than steroid king Arnold Schwarzenneger as the Chair of the President's council on sports and fitness to teach our kids. I blame all this on him.

Except that he wasn't the only owner, and I could make a case for Tony LaRussa's connections with the Oakland A's/St. Louis Cardinals steroid crew as just as "evil".

You remember the bash brothers, dontcha?
