In response to S5's comment:
Without getting into the validity of Kim's post and thinking of it more globally, are we to believe that the FO's don't know who's using and who isn't? And I'm not excusing the Sox from it either. They've had their issues with certain players too.
Every FO is baseball is familiar with Josh Hamilton and Zac Grienke and their issues. Most of us also believe that when a FO is going to tie up millions of dollars in a player they want to know EVERYTHING about him, probably up to and including the regularity of is bowel movements, :-) so why should we not also believe that they know who's using and who isn't?
C'mon. MLB is a fairly small community and word leaks out.
Without 'naming names' and leaving the Sox and the Yankees out of the discussion, I think Kim makes an excellent point. Why does the FO pick up a player whom they're 90% sure is using? (and the only way to be 100% sure is through testing, which players are finding ways around). Aren't they just perpetuating the drug use?
The NY Post reports he was drunk almost into unconciousness when they arrived, and had to wake him up on his bed, fully dressed, and remembered nothing of what had happened.
Why does this make one automatically assume he's a steroid head, being hammered on X-Mas morning? Maybe he's a freakin' alcoholic.
