Ortiz is a druggie, and I'm mad at me

Why am I mad at me? Because I thought Ortiz was a steroids user for years. So did you. So did anyone with any common sense. He goes from being an average player with the Twins to being a Hall of Famer with the Red Sox, and he made that improvement in the Steroid Era, and yet he wasn't on 'roids?

He wasn't, not officially, until the New York Times outed him today. So now we can all talk about what we already sort of knew: Ortiz was a juicer.

Great. But too late. Which is why I'm mad at me. I had no guts, or I would have called out Ortiz years ago as the cheater we all thought he was.

There are two players right now I think are cheaters. Two sluggers. Both in the National League. At least one of them was in the HR Derby. If I had any guts I'd come out and say it: _____ is on steroids.

But I don't have any guts. So I won't say it.

And in three years when this guy, and the other guy, get outed ... I'll be mad at myself then, too.

Until then, speculate away on the two players. Figuring them out should take out about ... five or six seconds.

Lizzie Borden was acquitted, too, and she would have been a Red Sox fan

Does it surprise anyone that ANOTHER player from the DR has been caught?  There has been a lot of this and no one seems to be concerned that one country seems to be the source of a disproportiionate number of these cheaters. 

Albert Pujols seems to hold the game with a great deal of reverence but another Dominican guy with better major league stats than minor league stats?  I am having a hard time giving him any credibility.

Nope, this isn't a court of law. You can state the obvious. Just because the guy isn't "convicted in court" doesn't mean he didn't do it. Or is OJ actually innocent?

ut I don't have any guts. So I won't say it.you called out every one of your readers, said you probably wouldve asked tebow the virginity question too, and yet you dont think you have the guts to do something small like that?

the real reason no one ever called out Papi for being a roider is b/c he was so loveable. Just the big goofy guy that was nice to the kids and came through in the clutch.

Doyal
Innocent until proven guilty, before a court of law

Hmm I'm guessing it's Ryan Howard and Emilio Bonifacio.
