I can't find a list of the all banned performance-enhancing substances in baseball.

I'm real curious as to what exactly is banned.

Thanks in advance for any help.

k, I found the policy:

http://news.findlaw.com/hdocs/docs/sports/mlbdrugpolicy05.pdf#search='mlb%20drug%20policy'

the reason I asked is that I'd been hearing everything about how a lot of players are taking over the counter supps and "unknowingly" violating it.

I call BS on this, but decided to research myself.

I'm gonna look over this. commentary later.

yeah, I looked it over before I went to bed, and I'm relatively sure there's nothing on there that you could get over the counter.

The main thing I was looking for was something along the lines of Superdrol, that that's there in no shape or form.

I know that M1T is on the list and that was legal. people do stockpile **** like that sometimes (there's a ton of people with a huge supply of ephedra out there still). and god knows what crazy dominican steroids these guys are getting. and you could go online and get steroids and masking agents on EBay right now if you know what you're looking for.

but, this whole "they're taking OTC supps and just don't know what's in them" line is BS.

Show me the bottle.

That's all Raffy has to do, and there's absolutely nothing stopping him. But of course, it's all a smoke screen.

This was a very interesting site. I especially enjoyed the information on Anaheim's fight against the name "LA Angels of Anaheim." The first court denied the injunction and an appellate court (who's job was to only decide if the first court decision was made without looking at enough information. The appellaet court not only ruled that the first court rushed to judgement resulting in the setting of a court hearing in the fall, the judge also made sure to point out that he thought Angels royally scrwed over the city of Anaheim. This should get interesting come the fall.

I noticed the site had salary informatino through 2004. Any reason why they don't have this season's informatino available?
