    The best thing about the steroid era was how people tried to give P.E.D.ittee a free pass because he admitted to cheating; thus removing all doubt 100%, because he's a "Good Christian".  Real Christian's don't lie and cheat and especially not for financial gain.  P.E.D.ittee is even a bigger phony bologna than guys like AROID, Steve Howe, Cervelli, Michael Pineada and Ol George Steinbrenner because he actually believes the crapola he says and then hides behind the cross.......

    [/QUOTE]


    Ok this is your 2nd attempt on AP I'll bite.

    I agree he did cheat but unlike a lot of the others he held a press conference and admitted using that was the big difference.

    As Americans we are very forgiving to those who will just fess up and admit to their past transgressions everyone is entitled to a mistake.

    What really turns us off are the deniers, the liars when we all can see through the BS and know the truth. Probably why Pettitte was forgiven.

    Attacking him because he is religious seems to be one of your hang ups, I don't remember him ever hiding behind that or wearing religion on his sleeve.

    How did Pineda get into this conversation about roids? I mean we all know John Lester had a green substance in his glove in the WS. No big news there, like Papi said everyone does it, although Pineda has to smarten up and learn how to hide it.

    [/QUOTE]

    The kid isn't the sharpes knife in the draw!  He was told to hide it so he puts it on his neck!  Funny stuff.

    I respect that school of thought. However, the stadiums are no where full any more, even Fenway, and the TV $$$ look like they will decline in the next contract negotiations.

    It appears that the majority want the sizzle, while the purists are content...

    Count me as one who most enjoyed a RS/Yankee game that went 4 hours with the outcome a RS win, 5-4. Couple of HR's, GG defense and nail biter to the end...these Wien Chen throwing 86 MPH 3 hitter games are not for me 

    [/QUOTE]


    Ironically enough...I think it's the 4 hour games that keep people away more than the lack of big sluggers built by steroids. I for one don't mind watching a 4 hour game where both teams are grinding it out offensively and defensively..but 4 hour games because the batter has to step out of the box after every pitch to adjust...well..something..get's tedious.  MLB needs to find a way to trim out the nonsense and pick up the pace.

    My rules would be:

    *  Between batters, take as much time as you need.  Catcher can run out and talk to the pitcher and infielders can join in.  Batters can do whatever routines they want.

    *  But once that AB starts, that's it.  No mound visits by the catcher or infielders.  No stepping out of the box.  Pitcher can't walk around the mound.  There should really only be 10 seconds in between pitches unless there is a special circumstance like an injury or a broken bat.  If there are runners on base there are no restrictions with how long they hold the ball or how many times they step off but I do expect the pitcher to get the ball back quickly and step on that rubber as quickly as possible.

    I agree with you and misckricket.  I have the video of the second to the last game of 1967.  The batters stayed in the batter's box and the pitchers stayed on the mond.  The game is more enjoyable to watch because of the continuity of play.  

    The game of baseball is about hitting, pitching, catching, etc.  It's not about watching a batter roam around, fixing his gloves or clapping his hands.

    it would also reduce the defensive shifts that take place with each change in the count.  If Maddon wants to move a guy 125 feet in between pitches they better be able to sprint it in 5 seconds.

    Interesting point.  Defensive shifts are becoming more and more popular.  I wonder if coaches are now telling their players to leave the batters box so they can make those shifts.  Even more time added to the game.

    there is so much of that intentional delaying going on - from giving the relievers more time to warm up to the stupid replay system - the replay system makes a mockery of the game; for HR's I like it but that's about it

    Why did you omit Ryan Braun, Bartolo Colon or Alex Colome of the Rays?


     


    To help with your math? Or how about the 12 minor leaguers from different organizations.





    i just went by the wiki link.  those three may have been suspended earlier in 2013?  minor leaguers dont count (unless they are yankees - then i will include them - let me know).


    [/QUOTE]

    They were included in the same time frame with the rest. Ryan Braun? Please, that's a convenient miss, it didn't garner much publicity being such an unknown. Colome early this year.


    What's 25 percent of 11? Ha ha ha.

    wrong.  everything i said is fact.  25% of the players suspended for PED within the past year are yankees.  go back to sleep.

    Re: Bring back steroids!

    colome is minor league roster.  wasnt including those.  but if you want to then we can throw in Fernando Martinez & Ryan Baker who are both with (you guessed it!) the yankees organization.  gee, what would adding those 2 do to the %???

    would you like to continue this discussion?

    Colome was on the Rays ML roster when busted and pitching for them.

    Why is it so difficult for you to admit that you were wrong?

    College classmates named you slash because you fudged numbers?

    slash omits (forgets!) Colon and Braun from those busted within the past year so his total count can amount to 8.

    But is able to remember 2 Yankee minor leaguers.

    Another subject you have zero credibility with.

    Re: Bring back steroids!

    sigh.  this was the heading on wiki that colome fell under:

    Players who had major league experience on minor league rosters

    do you want to include him in my percentage? 

    that would make 10 players of which 2 are yankees for a 20% rate.  not quite 25%.  regardless, the amount of yankees players busted and suspended by far blows every other team out of the water.  the closest to them is the mets (being so close in proximity maybe those mets players took the subway to visit with the yankees "supplements" guy???).  

    guess how many red sox players have been suspended?  even i wont screw up that math.

    because any number divided by ZERO is....you guessed it.....0%!!!!!!!!

    Martinez wasn't with the Yankees.


    But nice try. You are pathetic.


    Facts don't back up what you say? No problem you have your own version of the truth.

    did you actually look at the wiki page i used as reference.  those were my facts. 

    but really it doesnt even matter.

    everyone on the planet thinks the yankees = steroids.
