Well, most of the names aren't a terrible shock. Clemens has been suspected for a long time, and Pettitte was guilty by association.

Oddly, Matt Lawton isn't on the list. He was officially disciplined for steroid use, but his name isn't on the list.

Two of the heroes of Bubba's youth are on the list: Lenny Dykstra and Chuck Knoblauch. I'm glad he didn't follow their example in that regard. I'd have been crushed to see his name in the "cheater's lineup."

before rice built reckling park, the bleachers were so close you could hear the players conversations. i clearly remember lance berkman and bubba having a convo about some guy in the wac who was using creatin (sp?) and blew out his hamstring, from bulking up too fast in his quads. they both said "not worth it", standing on deck, waiting for a reliever to get warmed up.
