Yo Buritto! up late again I see. ya know, I still don't consider HGH as a performance enhancing drug. it helps the muscles and tendons heal quicker is what I was told. rodney harrison used it to get his knee working again. pettite used it to get his elbow to heal quicker. it doesn't give you added strength or stamina like shooting dinabol into your arm or stuff the body builders use to get hugh. just my humble opinion.
pettite used it to get his elbow to heal quicker.
stand up post Hammah29r2
yes andy used
but it was right after he got the big contract from astros
so he could get back to earning his money sooner
not getting a new contract
I see nothing to hate there
When the Mitchell Report came out, Pettitte admitted to using HGH in 2002. He swore he never touched it for the rest of his career.
In 2008 in a sworn affidavit, he admitted to using HGH in 2004 as well.
I'm sure that was it, though.
BTW, from 2003 - 2004, Pettitte averaged more than 2 Ks / 9 over his career average. In 2005, he posted the lowest WHIP and ERA of his career, and pitched more innings than he had in eight years. I'd say he was sufficiently healed.
