King Rhoid Ratted Out!

Definitely sounds like there was/is a snitch in King Rhoid’s camp:

The authors, Mark Fainaru-Wada and Lance Williams, describe in sometimes day-to-day, drug-by-drug detail how often and how deeply Bonds engaged in the persistent doping. For instance, the authors write that by 2001, when Bonds broke Mark McGwire’s single-season home-run record (70) by belting 73, Bonds was using two designer steroids referred to as the Cream and the Clear, as well as insulin, human growth hormone, testosterone decanoate (a fast-acting steroid known as Mexican beans) and trenbolone, a steroid created to improve the muscle quality of cattle.

Kiss Cooperstown goodbye, Barry; Charley Hustle’s plaque will be covered in dust before they’ll even think about mounting your bust.

The authors describe how Bonds turned to steroids after the 1998 season because he was jealous of McGwire. Bonds hit 37 home runs in ’98 — a nice total and the fourth most of his career at that point — but he was ignored by fans and the media who were captivated by McGwire’s 70 home runs and his duel for the record with Sammy Sosa, who hit 66 that year.

Be afraid, RhoidBoy, be very afraid, because your ass is next.

MSM: Old, Busted, but Still Good for Laughs

Matt Lauer is such an incredible asshat, it is hard to tell who is the bigger fool in this “interview.”

Another Reason to Hate the WBC

I’m with Darth Boss George when it comes to the World Baseball Classic: it’s a damn stupid idea for these high priced players to be risking injury playing in an exhibition series that at the end of the day will mean absolutely jack shit.

While we see pro players like ex-Mutt Mike Piazza playing for Italy–because nobody freakin’ plays baseball in Italy–and other countries with no connection to the game scrambled around, pouring through genealogy lists to qualify American-born profesional players with the right sounding last names to fill their rosters, how many Cuban born major leaguers are featured on Cuba’s squad? And don’t tell me, “well, they play baseball in Cuba; they don’t need them” because that excuse is pure bullshit…

I’ve stated all along my opposition to allowing the Cuban national baseball team to play in the World Baseball Classic here in the US. While some dont have any problems with allowing the Cuban team to play in the WBC, stating that “it’s just about baseball,” I’ve said all along that when it comes to Cuba, politics and propaganda come first, everything else, including baseball, is secondary. Ive said, in no uncertain terms, that the Cuban government would use the WBC as a platform to expouse on the greatness of the revolution and communism while criticizing the US, capitalism, the evils of the embargo and US policy towards the island. And of course, the MSM, true to form, jump on the pro-fidel bandwagon.
