Rampant 'Roids

There was a report in the news today that Andy Pettitte's deposition supports McNamee and contradicts Clemens. If true, things aren't looking good for the Rocket.

Mike Celizic thinks Clemens has no clue what he's getting into. That he's lived in the insulated world of the superstar athlete so long that he doesn't understand the rules normal people live by, let alone that they apply to him, too, this time.

And John Rocker crawled out from under a rock somewhere, and admitted that he failed a drug test...and said that MLB encouraged him and other players, including A-Rod, to juice.

Rocker said that doctors from management and the players’ association, following a spring training talk with the Texas Rangers about steroids and other topics, pulled himself, A-Rod, Rafael Palmeiro and Ivan Rodriguez aside. Rocker was with the Rangers in 2002.

“Looks guys, if you take one kind of steroid, you don’t triple stack them and take them 10 months out of the year like Lyle Alzado did,” Rocker said the doctors told them. “If you do it responsibly, it’s not going to hurt you.”

Rocker's a scuzzball, but I wouldn't be surprised if he's telling the truth. One thing that comes through from the Mitchell Report is that MLB, the players' union, and the teams were complicit in the juicing.

As for A-Rod...well, Canseco has hinted twice now that A-Rod is a juicer. Canseco is an obnoxious attention-seeker, but he's been vindicated in just about everything he's said about 'roids.
