It seemed to me a few years back the Angels stayed away from anyone that might be CLOSE to using PED's (missed on GMJ) because it looked like MLB was going to crack down
Locked up Scioscia and his small ball thinking, pitching and D
Then it seemed MLB was doing nothing buit window dressing
So the Angels go for Albert and Josh
Now MLB get a drug test with some teeth
Sounds like you are.
If someone on the Angels fails a test....so be it. I'm not going to worry that some players might be using just because they are good players. Some players could be using, the Angels aren't some PED-proof organization or anything like that. But if you believe albert or josh will get busted, it's because you already have a preconceived notion about them.
Glaus and Matthews are no longer on the team.
Josh is the most tested man in baseball trust me he is not doping on anything your silly even for suggesting that one.
Why is it you mention Pujols and Hamilton because of this?
Andy Pettitte used HGH. Did anyone have any suspicions he was using? It can be anyone and sometimes the least likely. It's not like steroids where size matters. This is something that players use a lot to help come back from injury. Maybe CJ, Madson and Burnett should be worried?
I am a little worried. I do think there will be a noticeable amount of guys who get caught, finally. My big brother thinks that Albert Pujols will get caught, and my Dad agrees. I also think that this is the kind of thing that will affect player salaries immediately and in the future.
And I think the headhunting will help owners in a way, going forward with voiding the contracts of some guys and signing guys for a lot less than they would, were it not for PEDs being such a big issue. A lot of agents are going to be pretty humbled from here on out.
I know, and it astounds me that any of them can be so foolish.
I don't do sports and never have, but isn't there anything out there to help with sports injuries which ISN'T disallowed by MLB and doesn't end up affecting performance, but simply heals the injury?
