From the New York Daily News, guess who looks like he's back to "living large" in the offseason? And yes, you can always count on the Daily News to "go there".

Yep, and until they start testing for HGH, he will continue to put up numbers.

But is he still sorry for whatever he apologized for?

What a fine, upstanding member of society. Not to mention a real role model for America's youth.

Ya know.. as a Sox fan, it really ticks me off to hear all these guys juicing. But as a human, I sometimes sit back and laugh.
They're good enough to be in the majors now, and I don't think most of them will be bankrupt anytime soon, but it seems as though they don't think that's enough. I would give a lot to be able to interview some of these guys in 25-35 years when they're sitting at home with acromagaly.
It may be poetic justice if they aren't even able to be put on camera or make appearances any longer because of the results..

hey guys to be honest, I don't know about you but if I knew that taking HGH or steroids would get me in the major league right now I would do it. I play semi-pro right now with my 83 mph fastball and it just won't do it for me!

So you'd rather cheat to get ahead? Use your brains. Maybe baseball isn't your calling.

I see where you're coming from. I can tell ya that if I had the chance to achieve the dream of playing in the majors, even for one game, and HGH or roids was the only thing that would put me over the hump....not saying I would do it, but it would be a real tough choice.

Continuing to take the stuff though, even when you're set financially and you got to experience the majors for a few seasons, is just asking for health problems down the road.

While I can see why borderline players would take it, to make it to the majors, its the stars that don't need it that are the ones raising the flags. I'm sure Giambi, MacGwire (sp) and Sosa would have done pretty decent without steroids, but they insisted on taking them to get them to be elite.

Players have cheated in baseball for centuries (scuffed baseballs,corked bats, wood shaven bats).To take HGH or any steroid just makes no sense to me.MLB may not check for HGH now,but it will eventually catch up to "fake" sluggers like Jason Giambi.When his body starts falling apart shortly,true baseball fans will have the last laugh.The fake 2000 "MVP"
(Most Valuable Putz) will pay for his chemical mistakes in the end.It's just
my opinion,but it's how I feel.:angry: :angry:

Out of curiosity, where do you play? who for?

whos to say they would be good without steroids, maybe they have been juicing there whole carrers. McGwire did play with Canseco early in his career.

I don't think Sosa wouldn't have lasted very long in the majors w/o the juice.
