Steroids are performance enhancing drugs


so is marijuana, but I doubt that helps anything at all.

Huh? Pot enhances performance? Here I thought it weakened/dampered performance

Doesn't really matter if it's steroids or not. If it's "performance enhancing", it's bad, and it's banned (and so is Manny).

Peter Gammons has said that the positive result stems from a prescription drug Manny got for a personal health reason from a doctor in Florida. He didn't state what the drug was but indicated it wasn't any kind of steroid or HGH type drug.

Yeah, and the doc didn't know the Rx was on the No-No list. I gotta give props to Manny for acknowledging it, admitting it, and not appealing cuz he knew in the end he was the one who's but was on the line.

That said.


HAHAHa.

Sounds like Manny wanted to get the ol' libido fired up again using a girlie fertility drug that ALSO happens to fire up testosterone production.

But I'm sure in Manny's case it was "just to improve quality of life", not quality of performance on the field.

Nice try. Fail.

Yep, that's what I heard, purportedly the same stuff Giambi and Bonds used. Barring an excellent explanation from a personal physician baseball should just move to lifetime bans on this stuff and the players who test positive for it. Period.
I hope Frank McCourt sends Manny packing like Andrew Jones barring anything else coming to light.

It's common for people to take drugs like these after they have come off of steroids because the increase in testosterone helps prevent side effects of suddenly coming off of steroids.

I wish it had been for 50 years.

Sorry asswipe of a person IMHO.

Couldn't have happened to a more deserving person, just too little, too late IMHO.
