Big Poppy is a fraud too

30 posts in this topic

According to reports Ortiz was + for steroids in 03.... Pujols is next IMO.

Well the way this is going, they will have to change the rules, and should allow 2 players per team to be juiced, so the playing field is even.

I say Pujols, Griffey, and Frank Thomas were all clean and I would be surprised to hear their names as being one to use but anyone else doesn't really make me surprised......Thome would have to be on the clean list also....

Are you really surprised? You know it's really sad when you start to doubt players if they do well - Its steroids! or if they do poorly- he must have gone off - but thats the nature of pro sports now. With the money thats available - both on the field and endorsements wise it would be awfully hard not to try them especially as easy as they are to supposedly get and when you see the results the players get. I also get a kick out of it when you hear players say "I've passed 15 drug tests over the past 5 years." The baseball tests were not that sophisticated and a lot of players could have very easily used masking agents to get by. Although I do agree with the players union in that those tests were done in complete confidence and the names were never to be available to the public or anyone else for that matter. The release of those names seems to be not only unethical but illegal as well.

Pujols would be in a pickle if he tests positive. He has made public statements saying he would give back every dollar he has made while playing professional baseball if he ever tests positive for steroids. Thats a pretty big claim to make if he is juicing and relying only on masking agents. Seems to me he is pretty confident that he's clean.

I am not surprised to see Ortiz linked to roids at all. Once he left the Twins he all of a sudden became a great hitter. He couldn't hit for his life when playing for the home town team. Manny doesn't surprise me either. They may as well release the rest of the names if these guys are being outed.

I am confused, if they are not going to release the names, then why did they take the test in the first place. I am suprised no one has been caught bribing somewhere down that trail. Will that be next, to keep it quiet.

MLB knows who is on the list but the courts sealed the list to the public, I think.

Big money will interest many in roids. Until the penalty is very heavy, it will continue.

I agree with you there Harvey. The penalties haven't scared too many people yet.

When your numbers increase as dramatically as Ortiz did when he left here it wasn't Rocket Science to figure out he was juicing along with his buddy Manny!

I wish I could believe Frank Thomas and Griffey have NEVER used drugs but I don't buy it at all!

Of course I said the same to all the A-Roid apologist before he was busted !

I agree,

It didn't seem to bother Manny all that much. He sat out his 50 games and came back to a heroes welcome in Los Angeles. When you make the incredible amount of money these guys make the financial hardship of losing 1/3 of your salary for the year isn't a deterrent. I don't know what the answer is - it almost seems like the public doesn't care that much any more if someone is on or not as long as the team is succesful. I personally had many opportunites to try a lot of this stuff while playing college ball and later in competitve bodybuilding but always resisted. One, because I considered it cheating and it was illegal and two, what kind of an example are you setting to your kids if you tell them not to do drugs and you are doing them yourself?

Good News! last post for Pier in the sports forum until next week...LOL!

Oritz is on record as SAYING anybody who has cheated with drugs in basebal should be banned for one year..

Ortiz quote:

"I know if I test positive by using any kind of substance, i know I'm going to disrespect my family, the game, the fans and everbody, and I don't want to be in that situation. I won't use it!

HUH?

Everyone was doing it and it isn't even a surprise anymore when a big name pops out. It's totally bogus but whatever, it's MLB's fault for waiting so long and sitting back watching the revenue pour in as McGwire, Sosa, and Bonds kept cranking them over the fence. IMHO, they should just shut up and forget the past. What's done is done.

As for the future, they should institute a lifetime ban from baseball or whatever sport and no chance at a HoF spot for anyone testing positive. Pete Rose got banned for betting on baseball but these 'roid junkies get a free pass. Missing out on a 1/3 of your paycheck??!? Please, Manny makes more in 2/3 of a season than I will my entire working life.

is there an article that says he was on the juice? I thought MLB doesnt necessarily disclose the specific banned substance.

Only assumed it was. Maybe it was cocaine or something, but I always read into it being a performance enhancing substance he was on, not a narcotic

These guys simply don't care. They're staring in the face of 50+ million dollar contracts that have/will set themselves and the rest of their family up for eternity. Integrity of the game...please. Hall of Fame...who cares. These guys were after that huge contract and in the end...most of them cashed in. Joke's on us.

Steroids are extremely helpful to pitchers. Steroids help you recover quicker from your training, pitching fatigue and of course injury.. Thats why Clemens, Rincon and many other Pitchers use them.

zamboni,

I agree Rincon was terrible but not all players who take steroids become that much better, Initially you have to have the genetics for them to work with. Next you have to eat properly, train hard and get adequate sleep for them to work to their potential. Failure to do any of the above will result in not only wasted money but the inevitable damage to your kidneys and liver as well. You would think these guys would do their homework before putting this into your body instead of listening to some pusher about the advantageswithout the harm.

    • DonBo, good luck on your bow quest,  your father raised you well!  What a great way to celebrate life by sharing a hunt together.
    • My family has LIfe 360 on our phones. It allows you to know exactly where that phone is at all times. My teenage kids were not to hip on the idea until my wife explained that you either have the app or you don't have a phone. It already saved a phone. My son dropped his phone in the middle of a bean field last summer.  We were able to use the app to drive a wheeler to within 10ft. Well worth it.
    • My personal opinion on the backup pumps is that they are a stop gap to buy you enough time to minimize the amount of water that backs up during a torrential storm while you get your primary pumps on a generator.    Obviously the biggest factor is to figure out how much water can enter the drainage system during the heaviest downpours and that can help you decide what gpm you need to stay ahead of the water. If you get a bigger backup pump then you will burn through a battery faster.    If you don't get a lot of water in the system ever and if the sump pump only runs periodically during even heavy rains and wet weather then you can get more run time from a smaller system.    There really isn't a way to say exactly what you need to be 100%safe unless you know exactly what flows you have.
    • Already doing many of these.  It's slowly improving.
    • I was just getting some info on this unit: http://www.zoellerpumps.com/en-ap/product/63-basement-sentry#features     I am sure you could hook up multiple batteries as well
    • Sunday, pulled a group of 3 toms from about 500 yds across private into the public only to hang up at 60 yds. We worked them for 2 hrs and they never got in front of the blind. They finally got closer, but instead of going in front of the blind, they got behind the blind at about 5 yards inside the woodline and could hear them stepping on twigs. Man what a rush. Sadly, they walked back onto private and out of our lives LOL. Kinda wish I was hunting with a shotgun!   3 or 4 gobblers were rattling off behind us in the woods in the morning and shut up by 7. The 3 that we got to come in from private were to the other side and they didn't gobble til they were close enough to see/hear our setup. Those two hours were between 8 and 10. Will try again.
    • They will lose 90 to 100 games again this year. They do not have the pitching to even get to 500. Santana will be our lone all-star and be traded before end of year. Hope something changes but they did not add anything for starters or offensive so until they do we will get the same junk. Really sucks cause i love watching and listening to the games all summer long.
    • % of people that have picked that person. 
    • Some rainy river monsters! 61" 60" and a 54"! Have a look!  
    • Many big sturgeon boated this past week again.  Has been a great year for sturgeon so far up and down the river.  Fish different holes until you find fish.  Use a 3 ounce no roll sinker, a 1-1.5 foot leader, and a circle hook loaded (called a sturgeon rig) with frozen shiners and crawlers for best results. Anchor boat up stream of a deeper hole and pitch sturgeon rig into the hole. Heavy equipment is preferred.  Pike fishing is going good right now in shallow bays and on the Rainy River. Best methods so far are using buzz baits or lying a frozen cisco on bottom with a hook and weight(similar to a sturgeon rig but with less weight).   Pike are active in bays. The lake and bays and water starting to warm up and pike are being caught.  Pike are open all year up on LOW.   Up at the NW Angle, the ice is gone and it's open water.  Remember, walleyes open May 13th, pike and crappies open all year for LOW MN and sturgeon fishing through May 15th and then again July 1st.
