East Coast BALCO Equivalent?

Unread postby swerb » Wed Feb 28, 2007 10:19 pm

Bad enough the Halos gave this guy 5 years, 50 million off one good season, which came at age 32. Now, he's at the center of a steroid scandal. Go figure.

Matthews was a career .249 hitter who played for 6 teams in his first 7 years ... then went .313, 19, 79 last year and cashed in with Anaheim this off-season.

Will be interesting to see where this one goes, allegedly more names will be released soon ...

Wrong board, but I believe the Steelers team doctor is a big part if this investigation as well.

Yeah, supposedly the Steelers team physician of 21 years purchases human growth hormone with his personal credit card, and is now stating it is for senior citizens. Yeah, sure.

Heard Dan PAtrick mention today that during the Chuck Knoll era in the 1970s the Steelers lineman were all doped up on steriods, which is why so many of them now have so many issues with their bodies.

When do you think Grimsley's list will go public? And, yes, as sad as it is, that was a serious question.
