10. "If you want privacy go play semi-pro ball. drug use (including steroids) hurts baseball. Why should we pay millions of dollars to these guys and have them go on the disabled list?"   TONY LARUSSA

11.  "Asking me or any other player to answer questions about who took steroids in front of television cameras will not solve the problem... My lawyers have advised me that I cannot answer these questions without jeopardizing my friends, my family and myself. I intend to follow their advice."   MARK MAGUIRE

12. "After batting practice or right before the game, Mark (McGwire) and I would duck into a stall in the men's room, load up our syringes, and inject ourselves. I always injected myself, because I had practiced enough to know just what I was doing, but often I would inject Mark as well."   JOSE CANSECO

13.  "Who would do the testing? Will results be kept private? Or will they be leaked to the media? What about false positives? You think it's going to be confidential? I laugh at that."   NORMAR GARCIAPARRA

15.  "Everybody I know in the game of baseball uses the same stuff I use."  MARK MAGUIRE

21. "Doctors ought to quit worrying about what ballplayers are taking. What players take doesn't matter. It's nobody else's business. The doctors should spend their time looking for cures for cancer. It takes more than muscles to hit homers. If all those guys were using stuff, how come they're not all hitting homers?"   BARRY BONDS
