In Response to Re: Yankees Tamper With J. C. Romero II
[QUOTE]In Response to Yankees Tamper With J. C. Romero II : If a bad hip condemns Lowell, than Chase Utley, Alex Gordon and my Mother-in-Law must be juicers, too. Which scenario is more plausible... 1) Mike Lowell was juicing. He had hip degeneration that is consistent with steroid use. His best slugging percentage was .530 in 2003 with the Marlins. To my knowledge, none of Lowell's team-mates that year were implicated in the Mitchell Report, but team-mate Ivan Rodriguez was accused by Canseco in his book. His best slugging percentage since the drug policy has been in place was .501 in 2007. His average slugging before 2006 (when the drug policy was put in place) is .461, ages 24 - 31. His average slugging since (ages 32 - 36) is .468. 2) Derek Jeter was juicing. His best slugging percentage was .552 in 1999 with the Yankees. His team-mates that year who were implicated in the Mitchell Report include Roger Clemens, Jason Grimsley, Andy Pettitte, Mike Stanton, and Chuck Knoblauch. His best slugging % since the drug policy was put in place is .483 in 2006. His average slugging before the drug policy (ages 21 - 31) was .461. His average slugging since (32 - 37) is .428.

Hilarious Cherry picking.
As far as '99 is concerned, Jeter had a career yr; that happens when you put it all together in your prime, like Maris in '61, Mantle in '56, Yaz in '67, Brett in '80, Carew in '77, Jackson in '69, Torre in '71, Gwynn in '94, Carlton in '72, Guidry in '78, Gooden in '85, Chance in '64, Welch in '90, Stone in '80, Gibson & McLain in '68, etc. Lowell played in Fla, a tough park, before he played on the jai-lai court in Bos. Lowell was a classic Fenway hitter, by many accounts. Lowell's physique also shrank; and he went from 32 Hrs in '03 with Fla (and he played only 1 game after Aug 30 that season due to a broken hand) to 8 in '05, and that was while playing in Fenway. (However, I believe he was playing hurt that yr.)
My dad had it happen in his 50s soon after 1 yr of intensive steroid treatment, the Dr. said that's why he got it; & Utley & Gordon are suspicious then, IMO. -Age is also a factor. How old was your mother-in-law? No matter, 'cause you overlooked the term high correlation in my previous post.
Perhaps you should google Jeter & steroids and see what you come up with. Then try it then with Garciaparra. Lowell I'm sure would have less hits than NOMAH. Good luck.
