Delino Deshields:

"Look around this clubhouse. There are some bad bodies around here. Half these guys look like they need to be on something."

Fred McGriff:

"It goes back to the money in the game. A career minor leaguer, he might see this as a way to pull it off and get to the major leagues and take care of his family."

Royce Clayton:

"(Testing) sends a message that steroids are a substance you don't want to mess around with and that there is no place for them in the game...We are role models, and that's the most important thing a player has to understand. As soon as we test and the game is clean, the better it will be for everybody."

Gary Sheffield:

"I would like to see testing in baseball. I'm definitely in favor of it. I mean, you see how much guys are using it. You see guys with all these sores on their bodies. Even pitchers are doing it now. Some guys are obvious. Some aren't. But let's test. Unless you've got something to hide, you won't mind testing, right?"

and last, but not least, Sammy Sosa:

"Let's talk baseball."

How incredibly, incredibly telling.
