Six-twelve Red Sox players have tested for steroids during spring training.

Here (http://www.miami.com/mld/miamiherald/sports/baseball/11101375.htm) is the story.

(No positive, the Miami Herald just found the testing newsworthy)

VC Edit: The original title of this thread implied the players had tested positive. It was changed. The first several posts are a reaction to that title.

How dumb does a player muchless multiple players have to be to KNOW that there will be steroid testing and LOTS of it, and still continue to do it? I'm sure Red Sox fans will say it's some giant conspiracy/frame-up/curse

And the **** really begins to hit the fan. But Selig said that the steroid problem was solved! How can this be?

Where in the article does it say they tested positive? I read it and it just said 6-12 players were tested for steroids as part of the program, not tested and found to have tested positive.

Arrogance isn't something that is easily turned off... but don't worry, I hear Donald Fehr's cavalry [F-Troop?] already coming to their rescue!

Without being too presumptive, it seems you're the only one that bothered to actually read the article.

I didn't read it because I didn't register with Miami herald.com... oh well, maybe next time. :cool:

I still stand behind my statement that arrogance isn't something that is easily turned off. :D:

This has to qualify as one of the worst threads ever.

It's just a dingleberry... it's not anything super-serious like protecting a bunch of drug using millionaire ball players from having to testify before Congress... allegedly.

i guess this "Who's ur papi" is just crap about juiced up hitters pulling the team to a WS. No wonder this team is called the "Idiots" :D:

(someone should pm Fenway!)

I still stand by my first half of my original statement, and I still stand by my 2nd half of my original statement if and when this happens in the future:cool:

None of this matters because baseball will protect it bests players anyway. There is no independent counsel doing the testing, it is MLB. If a player tests positive, he will probably be suspended but it a secretive way. A la Sosa...missing a few games because he sneezes too hard, or somebody else because they fell down the stairs.
