Well, I guess ball players just can't help themselves. It's 1 or 2 days before the first spring training game and already the boys are opening their mouths and inserting their foot.
Sheffield - When push comes to shove, Scott Boras probably is not a nice person, but neither is Sheffield when you get right down to it. I'm sure you all heard of the law suit that Boras wants his 5% from Sheffs last contract with the Yankees. Sheffield allegedly agreed to let Boras work his contract with Yanks in 2003, but then fired him and negoitated it himself. Then Sheff couldn't figure out why players like M. Tejada got a 6 yr deal and V. Guerrero got a 5 yr deal and he only got a 3 yr deal. He claims Boras bad-mouthed him. Maybe its because the other two players are 7 yrs younger then you and not as injury prone.
He also called the investigation into steroids a "witch hunt" for Barry Bonds. So I guess all those names in the Mitchell report were just to get Barry. You might want to rethink that one. Or better yet as Mr. Clemens how he feels.
Stated that Joe Torre treated blacks and whites differently. Why didn't he say that when he was we the Yankees? Why isn't that in the book he wrote?
John Rocker - Originally he accused the Rangers' team physicans of showing him and others how to effectively use steroids. Also stated he failed a nonmandatory drug test in 2000 and Mr. Selig knew he as "juicing". He went as far as saying the players union aided in steroid use. Whom ever uts a microphone in front of this guy should be fired. No one wants to hear from him.
Alex Rodriguez - Says he was tested 9 or 10 times. We all know that's unlikely, unless he tested positive and required more testing. Of course, someone probably pointed that out to him, so right on cue, he started backpeddling as fast as Mr. Clemens and says he was exaggerating, not a good thing to do with the media.
Eric Gagne/Paul LoDuca - Apology? What for?, Gagne, "I feel bad", LoDuca, "mistakes in judgment". Neither of them addressed the specific allegations. What is so hard about saying "I used HGH and I'm sorry". If one doesn't specify what they are apologizing for, you just leave things up to speculations.
Jorge Posada - "I believe Roger Clemens", so he's just calling his teammate Mr. "Honest" Petitte a liar. Believe what you want Mr. Posada, just keep it to youself, for you it served no purpose to open yuou mouth. I hope Petitte doesn't throw that fastball......when you're expecting a slider.
