Well, now he's got a case of Always Defeated Disorder.

Could this be because amphetamines are now a banned substance? And the treatment for ADD is...you guessed it! Amphetamines!! :o:

EDIT: And, "coincidentally," Eyre will admit that he started pitching better after he got treated for ADD. Is it because they cured his "disease" or because he began using performance enhancers???

This is absolutely correct. The NFL teams do the same thing. My family knows someone who played in the NFL and his team had him take a lot of tests for ADD and other things as well. Because of these tests he was put on quite a few drugs that were banned, but allowed in 'special' circuimstances. ADD was something he tested positive for, and we always found this interesting because he was a VERY smart person who never showed the signs of this type of thing. He got a very high GPA in college and also tested in the 32-34 range on his ACT in high school (I don't remember exactly). IMO, those two things would be extremely tough to do without taking anything for his apparent ADD (that was first diagnosed in his first year in the NFL).
