In Response to Re: Yankees Tamper with JC Romero : Colon is guilty of hiding an experimental medical procedure. That's a fact, not a rumor. I've never accused him of using a banned substance - merely supported the opinion that what he did is in the same vein. Is there any justification for names like Nomar and Bagwell, or is it just that one rumor was repeated enough times to make it OK? I don't suspect Jeter of PED-use, but I'll bet I could make a better case for it than either Nomar or Bagwell. Let's see, Jeter's best year of slugging was by far 1999, at .552. Isn't that the same year that Clemens brought McNamee back to the bronx?

There's been whispers about those guys, haven't you heard? Have you ever seen their changing body types over the years? (In Bagwell's case, he got bigger, than smaller.) Meanwhile, there hasn't been a WHIFF of Jeter doing them, and if you find one, let me know. As far as McNamee is concerned, how about the training that RS players were getting to avoid detection a few yrs ago? And then guys were fired to cover it up? And Ortiz hiding behind the PA's skirt? And did you see how much smaller Lowell got after he left Fla, BTW? Did you know there's a high correlation between steroids and hip degeneration? Go look it up. (It happened to my father, who was on a steroids for a few yrs for a condition, and to A-Rod, of course, FWIW.) As far as Colon is concerned, you talk out of both corners of your mouth. Pathetic stuff.
