Clemens Denies Using Steroids

Roger Clemens today forcefully denied, under oath and before the U.S. Congress and the world, ever having taken performance-enhancing drugs. You know, I'm beginning to think that maybe he really did intentionally throw at Mike Piazza in the 2000 Mets/Yanks interleague series.

Of course he threw at Piazza. I pitched baseball from the time I was 9 until I was 17. I had a good fastball, and struck out alot of batters. No matter how hard you overthrow, your not that uncognizant (and I had to overthrow to be effective regularily) of your surroundings as to not notice the difference between a baseball bat and a damned ball.

He used steroids and HGH, and should gladly admit it and say: "hey, all my competition and batters were using it, so I had to use it to keep up. This is what you guys get for not having rigorous testing, you literally FORCED me to use if I wanted to be competitive".

Clemens likes the limelight. He always has, thats why he kept going back with the Yankees. He should still (of course) be in the hall of fame. All the roids' were MLB's fault. You dont test for something regularily, your going to get it as some players are guaranteed to cut every corner they can and it forces other players to just to keep up. I dont even blame Bonds.

Here is the stat of the steroid era to remember for all time: Brady Anderson hit 50 home runs one year. He never hit more than 23 before or after that year. His total the year before was 19. He only hit more than 20 three times (inlcuding the 50 HR year). Usually his total was in the middle-to-upper-TEENS. One year, voila', he hit almost as many as George Foster did in the best year in the entire decade of the seventies. His triceps development on an ordinarily tall, skinny, SHORTSTOP was defined and noticeable even from the stands. His facial skin got thinner, he got cut up and defined even on his forearms. All the tell-tale signs.

Ever notice how all of a sudden late in his career how fast Clemens started losing his hairline? Did you notice how fast Barry Bonds went completely bald back in the late nineties? Steroids speed that stuff up by decades. They will probably both be dead men in their mid-late fifties from heart-related problems.

There are some 50 or so former wrestlers who died in or before their fifties. Many in their forties, many had strange heart-related failures. The anabolic lifestyle of pumping tons of iron, having adrenaline rushes regularily, lifting large amounts of weight and train-to-failure workouts is hard on the heart over time if you throw a bunch of roids on the fire. The Governator has a damned pigs-valve in his heart. Steroids are a physical supernova for human beings. The acne and baldness, testicular shrinkage, back-acne, heavy beard, thinner facial skin (loss of adipose tissue), breath issues, hirsutism in females, anger outbursts, etc. ought to tell anyone that long-term they are bad news.

I care enough about our sports stars not to want to see them be unhealthy old men..........

Did Brady Anderson even make the list? He seems like the poster child for steroids. I think at the time we all thought it was evidence of a juiced-up ball! How naive. By the way, Brady was a centerfielder, not shortstop - I think there was a guy named Cal who played SS for the O's at the time:)

The steroids in MLB is obviously the most important facing the US today. Then again, if Congress is focused on this nonsense, they hopefully can't fuck anything else up too badly.

Youre right, I dont know why I had "infielder" stuck in my head with Anderson. I looked it up and he played centerfield, and apparently a little left field before he retired.

His homeruns in the years around the "big year" were :
12, 16, 50, 18, 18. Tell me that doesn't stick out like a sore thumb. He had over 500 at bats all those years except one when he had 452, so it wasn't long runs on the DL that kept the numbers down those years around the boom year.

He actually stole 53 bases one year, and managed to steal 21 bases he hit all those homeruns.

Due to who we have and will have as president, Im hoping for gridlock for the next five years. I mean hard gridlock. If we get what these presidents want, it will be awful for the nation. I actually think Hillary Clinton would be the least destructive of the bunch----and I despise her just as much as you do. This is easily the most dispiriting election of my lifetime.

On the subject of the adverse effects of anabolic steroids, I heard somewhere that taking of androgenic steroids in combination can offset those effects somewhat.
