    I won't say your wrong but I always think that players like AROD, and especially NOMAR wind their bodies so tight that it eventually starts to snap. In 1999 when I was at Nomar's locker in Ft. Myers it was FULL of vitamins and various other things you would find at GNC. It actually looked like a GNC franchise in his locker...

    I think things like this are a case by case basis.  Manny didn't break down, neither did Bonds or Palimiero, Sosa or Ortiz.  I think injuries happen to every player differently and it depends on the individual.

    Alex admitted he's been using steroids since high school!!!  I'm surprised it's taken this long to beat him down.

    When it comes to A-Rod, Sox fans want to assume everything about the guy can be explained by steroid usage.

    Because there is no other explanation possible for a 36yo professional athlete getting hurt and requiring surgery after 18 seasons of play at the highest level...

       Actually Bonds did break down. His knees were so bad that he was a virtual statue in left and his always weak arm became Damon like.

    Agree with Jessey.  Griff's name has never even been mentioned in the same breath as PEDs.

    That's one of the biggest crimes of all with PEDs; the moment a clean player begins to fade, his name gets chucked in the PED bin.

    You could not be any more correct on this frivolous assumption. Even back in the day, some players suffered more injuries than others. It's a question of good versus bad fortune. And so many of the present players that used haven't got A-Rod's issues. And yet so many past users still playing aren't having these physical problems. This assumption is merely a hate for the player. 
    Any future injury to any Sox player now may be construed as being a user then? Utterly ridiculous. With user numbers being as high as maybe 50 to 70% during the roid era, you'd expect many more injuries of this nature. Just my 2 cents.

    Posted by pri360[/QUOTE]
    I've had 3 meniscus related knee scopes and were related to power workouts techniques and the inevitable aging process. Never drug assisted which I vehemently will never condone. And I keep a continuous watchful eye on the high school athletes that I mentor. Hopefully teaching by example and reminding these kids the outweighed cons of PED usage will reflect enough thought to dissuade their use. Maybe drug use can excelarate or exacerbate joint or musculature injuries, but why risk abusing them to find out.  A teen's influence versus grown men's professional decisions are probably one of the like. Attaining goals sometimes concludes a 'no choice' attitude which ultimately results into delving into the unknown of the known. God help all those aspiring youth athletes with the dreams of becoming the next A-Gon, Cano or Cliff Lee through the use of illegitimate means. My 2 cents.

    True cw, Arod was reared on roids as an infant and probably can tolerate them longer than normal individuals.

    toward the end yes, you're right.  Still its a case by case thing age affects each player differently.

    I for one do not believe Griffey ever juiced, but I believe he is a good example showing that injuries do not mean PED's.

    I don't know about the 'roid effect, but I believe this is ARods last year at third. Next season Jeter will move to third and ARod will be almost exclusively ($30 million) DH for the rest of his career.

    I really believe that some players are in hopes that supplementation can increase their career longevity and why not consume ligit pills that can help them attain that. I would.

    The perfect example of a human body breaking down do to PED abuse is none other then......

    I just don't think you can make those kind of assumptions.  When I was young and fit, playing every day I could, I got the exact same injury on a routine single.  I rounded first base and pop. It was just a freak thing.

    But thank the baseball gods that the Sox aren't paying his contract for another 6 years!!!

    Why was this thread about a major league ball player and the harmful affects of possible drug use moved, when an idiotic thread about what movie actor should portray which poster is allowed to fester on?

    And you, BDC, want to be taken seriously?

    The worst part of the steroid and HGH revelations is that we all need to admit "I don't know" when a high-achieving athlete does especially well or gets hurt. My suspicions go all the way back to Lasse Viren (FInland) coming out of nowhere to beat Prefontaine in the 5K after winning the 10K and then also the marathon (Munich '72). Blood doping was mentioned by some but nothing came of it.

    Remind me again when it was ever proven that Ortiz took steroids? That's a pretty bold accusation to put on a player who was never proven and never admitted to using steroids.

    Re: Alex Rodriguez is the perfect example of what years of steroids does to the body.

    As far as my understanding goes nothing has actually been proven against any player. It remains to be seen what, if anything, can be proven. To this day rumor and innuendo continue to run rampant while hard physical evidence is extremely scarce or non-existent.

    Do I believe that many of those accused are guilty?... Certainly.

    Do I believe that questionable substances might still be in use?... Yes.

    But what myself or others may or not believe is'nt proof. The truth is, we'll probably never know for sure.
