My mom was on steroids for her COPD. She still couldn't get around on an inside fastball.

Have they drug tested him yet? His career ERA is 4.71.

He's also got a higher batting average than 80% of the hitters in baseball.

Calling him below average is absurd, when batting average places him in the upper 20% of all regular players. As far as OPS, Ichiro Suzuki is widely considered to be a future hall of famer, and his lifetime OPS is exactly middle of the pack, doesn't mean he's not great, just means that he's not a power hitter.

Actually, he currently has the 31st best batting average in baseball, among players qualifying for the batting title. He's hitting 24 points higher than league average, better than such no-name players as Josh Hamilton, Prince Fielder, Albert Pujols, and Ichiro Suzuki.

And Rafael Palmeiro has never used steroids. Period. Manny Ramirez really WAS trying to get pregnant every time he tested positive. David Ortiz will soon reveal the REAL reason he tested positive. Sammy Sosa didn't even understand the question.

I just hope he can still get tainted dietary supplements wherever he ends up.

or a $51 million posting fee and a 4 year, $50 million contract from the Red Sox.
Posted Wednesday August 10, 2011, About: More money, more problems in Minnesota
How come it's okay to refer to a player as a "skinny Japanese shortstop", but they wouldnt call David Ortiz a "fat black guy"?
Posted Tuesday August 09, 2011, About: Ortiz disappointed in lack of talks with Sox
I'm surprised he took time off from finding out how he failed a steroid test to worry about it.

He still has a starting spot on the all-overrated team.

The entire Yankee infield had fewer errors than Adrian Beltre.
Posted Tuesday October 05, 2010, About: Jeter 'worth' $5 million a year?
PEDs don't give you more power or better hand - eye coordination. They allow your body to recover more quickly from the workouts that gave you more power. You don't just take a pill and start hitting the ball 500 feet, you still have to put the work in. My mom was on steroids for emphysema, and she was a slap hitter like Ichiro. Every generation had medical advances that allowed athletes a better chance at recovery, between nutrition, training, and surgical procedures. Should we outlaw Tommy John surgery because it gives pitchers an advantage that wasn't available to Sandy Koufax?

Somehow you forgot about 40 points of batting average, 40 more runs scored per year, 40 more hits a year, 7 more home runs per year, 15 more RBI per year, and 100 points of OPS more per year. Other than those marginally better stats, they're twins.
