Are MLB players telling the truth?
Wed, February 13, 2008

Brian McNamee said he injected Roger Clemens with performance-enhancing drugs more often than he previously claimed, starting their high-stakes testimony before U.S. Congress on Wednesday with new attacks on the credibility of the seven-time Cy Young Award winner.

"I have helped taint our national pastime," McNamee, the pitcher's former personal trainer, said in his prepared statement, released before the start of the highly anticipated hearing.

Clemens has denied the accusations that became public in December's Mitchell Report.

Do you believe Clemens and other players when they say they did not inject themselves with performance-enhancing drugs? Have your say in our forum.

McNamee comes out firing

Jimmy, do you control what is put on these sites because I write allot that does not get published. Yet every diatribe that you spew seems to find it's way onto the site. Frankly I don't know why they would publish the shat, it holds less creadence worse than the unibombers manifesto.

Vince, are they able to test for HGH? I note you stated "juice". It's not that simple, the athlete has to be tested within five hours of treatment in order to detect HGH. With todays rules, (24hrs notice to test), teams and players unions would need to accept a large shift in current practises. Something for the next bargaining table. As for Jimmy, you're such a kiss arse. Do you have an opinion in this matter or just lip service.

I don't know where you're coming from (Mark)? Ankiel was outed mid-season, or were you not following the story? The "feel good" story of 2007 turned out to be just that!

As for your views, in today's litigious world, villains can roam untouched indefinitely. You may never have a better road to travel than the one drawn on a map. Frankly, until the Mitchell Report, no map existed on the use of ped's in MLB.

Oh yes, on the question, Bud Selig had others direct him on the route and he still got lost! Nice guy probably, but hitchhiking can be slow...

Well said.

Getting Bud Selig aka “Bud Light” out of the game is only the first step His replacement will only be more of the same. Who cares? It's all a big farce anyways. The players have been taking the juice all along, the players union knew it all along and, the owners went along with it. This was especially true after the last MLB players' strike. They all were in collusion for the purpose of bringing the fans back into the parks.

Incidentally, the NFL players are on it, the CFL players are on it, track athletes are on it, and of course, the WWE members are on it.

The fans attending the events are ambivalent to it. Sadly, this is a reflection of our society today. Nobody wants to be judgemental, everyone wants to be free to do whatever they please, and lawbreaking is euphemistically described or explained as "Error in Judgement” (Look up Brian Mulroney for a reference).

If all these pro Leagues were ever really serious about abolishing the use of the juice by their athletes, they would of course have an independent organization handle all the testing and screening of their athletes. They apparently are not interested in doing that. It would seriously affect the flow of money that they reap.

It’s all about the money baby. To hell with ethics, or the health of the players and all that crap, is their approach.

They only pay lip service for public consumption, PR so to speak.

After all are these not the same organizations that say things like “If you’re not cheating, you’re not trying” or “There’s no such thing as bad publicity”

Eliminating the Juice in pro sports? Dream on baby. LOL.

Excuse me, but why are players like Andy Pettite and Rick Ankiel even mentioned in this report. The Steroids they used at the times they used them were not illegal. Did you hear me? "NOT ILLEGAL!!!!" Why are we even talking about people whose medical treatments were completely legal. I don't care if they became illegal after the period of usage. You don't get to do things retroactively.

As for the records, both Mark McGwire and Barry Bonds deserve to be recognized as the legitimate record-breakers that they were (are). It was sickening last year to listen to the whining of baseball purists and the double-talk of league officials. If they were going to suspend Barry Bonds, they should have done so. They Didn't! End of story.

Its time we the fans sucked it up. Set up the rules on a go forward basis and live with the past. You will never ever be able to completely stop professional athletes from finding that extra edge. It will always occur and we will never catch everyone. Live with it!

But for goodness sakes, leave the fellows like Pettite and Ankiel who didn't even break the rules alone!

I've visited this post many times, and I have consistently condemned Mr. Potato Head (aka B. Bonds) and company for what I firmly believe has been the rampant chemical abuse for at least two decades by many of baseball's so-called big stars.

I've been a follower of this game for 53 years, and I played the organized game for almost a decade. I know the game and its valued traditions. Permit me a few observations.

The owners, Players' Association, players, and Commissioner's office all share the blame for the infamous "Steroids Era". What a disgrace! This makes the Black Sox scandal look like a Boy Scouts' cookout. In my opinion, Bonds, Clemens, Sosa, McGwire and "The Rest" are nothing but cheats and frauds. Place an asterisk by their so-called records? Give me a break. Let's consign their records and awards to the nearest dustbin or, better still, toilet bowl. As for membership in the Hall of Fame for cheats? Kick those bums into the Hall of Shame. And as for Selig and Fehr, true fans of the game should have as much respect for these two goofs as they do for a wet dog turd. A pox on both their houses!

I've said it before and I'll say it again. The Major League record for most home runs in a career? Henry Aaron, 755. Most home runs in a season? Roger Maris, 61. Biggest frauds in baseball history? See the Mitchell Report.

One last observation. The former Senator from the State of Maine finally put to rest the bulls**t that empty-headed apologists have kept saying, that is, that the use of chemicals was not "illegal" until Major League baseball started testing players. It had been prohibited since 1971.

Step aside Selig, and let an A. Bartlett Giamatti clone occupy the office.

The Mitchell Report is only the start; it should certainly not be the end.

Tell the players in any sport we are playing for marbles and it will all hit the fan. Tell the FANS you will get free beer if our team losses, then in every corner someone will try to control the outcome. Get a grip, go back to playing marbels.
