Headed to Baltimore

As the Sox are mired in the middle of a rough patch, I’m heading to Red Sox Nation (south) for the weekend to catch the games.

In other news, the NYT reports Ortiz and Manny both tested positive in 2003. If someone has a hold of this list of people who tested positive, why does it seem they are releasing one name at a time?

Personally, I’m tired of the steroid talk. Nobody seems to bring up the fact that until 2005, taking steroids was not a punishable offense.

  1. Have a good time in Balt, P.

    When you plate Bos, just rememeber how she two faced me all these years, telling me I was the fuking one.

    Be careful good buddy. If she did it to me she can do it to you.

    Not trying to butt in- I just dont want to see you get hurt, like me.

    Sincerely, herb from Malden.

  2. Sure, now you all are tired of “steroid talk”… back when I kept trying to tell y’all about this, I was wrong… I guess the HR power wasn’t that “special coaching” you all so fervently believed in, it all came from the special shelf at GNC… tainted championships, tainted awards, a tainted nation…

  3. This latest revelation only serves to strenghthen the greatness of the Captain. Of the “big 3″ from back in the day, he is the ONLY one to still be free of any dirt to his legacy. The nation must now rid itself of the “moral superiority” you all wear like a badge of honor and admit that your team is no different from any other team. Big Poopie is a cheat and a liar…

  4. porto does bring up a valid point and that is what happened “in Vegas” stays there and if it was prior to 4 years ago, then it is what is is…however, and this is the point counterpoint on that, the bottom line is if you knowingly inject yourself with something to enhance your physical strength, you are messing with the sport’s integrity. You can’t use the Gaylord Perry excuse either because he doctored the baseball, not the body to achieve his success. He did so under the watchful eye of hundreds of umpires over the years. Like the hidden ball trick, putting super balls in the top of bats, and using high pine tar, stealing signs from 2nd, that’s part of the ways to one up the opponent. Artificially altering your body strength with substances is Incredible Hulk science, and it did change players achievements–Jeff Bagwell and David Ortiz–what were they before they took ‘roids? One was a singles hitter, the other a marginal platoon player. Sorry, I love Big Papi, we all do, but if he took roids, shame on him.

  5. I just want to say Im sorry- to my fans, my chatmates, and especially to the chatters ive met in real life.

    I guess when ur young and stupid youre young and stupid.

    I know i also lied about this. I guess when youre young and a liar ur young and a liar.

    I have to admit though- the pay was pretty good, and i had a lot of fun. Got a couple rings out of it alsso. Not bad.

  6. What kills me is when a sportswriter calls for the release of all the names on the list, so “we can tell who was clean and who wasn’t”. No, we’d just know who was stupid/selfish enough to keep using because it was supposed to be without direct consequences.

  7. i agree with the chuckster, the fact of the matter is that the list is just a “portion” of the guys taking the roids, the numbers are probably EXACTLY what Canseco has said, the majority of players were on the juice…so either you call it the “Steroids Era” and exonerate everyone, including McGwire, or you throw everyone under a bus from that era. Sorry, but it’s one or the other…Trying to apologize for this is weak. A Liar is a liar. A cheat is a cheat. You can’t say “everyone was using it”….you have to be better than that.

  9. Seriously…just checked the splits. Tek had a lukewarm April/May, and has sucked since. Ortiz has actually picked it up since June, while Tek has been hitting like April/May Ortiz.

  10. Another clutch managing job by Tity Franc. Pitching to Longoria with 2 bases open and 2 out. The explanation given is …Terry Francona indicated that he felt the club also would have had to walk Ben Zobrist to make the decision worthwhile…WHAT? I will admit, Zobrist with his .087 BA vs the Sox is a bit scary, but pitching to the guy who just stuck it in your ass in the 8th may not have been the best option. Since we are taking Tek behind the shed, bring an extra bullet and bring Tito too.

  11. i was thinking the same thing on that, knowing he had homered earlier. There is no rule against walking the bases loaded either if you wanted to get a force play all the way around. they had already established that they could get out of jams. they could have walked both Longoria and Zobrist…Seen it before, but they threw to him. The Sox weren’t going to score anyway. Game probably would have went 20 innings with the sox losing on a PassaballaTek passed ball

  14. i would be pleased if Smoltz just hung them up right now…I don’t think any starter, I don’t care the history he has had, can get as many crappy starts and still have a spot in the rotation…he’s horrible and it’s time to call it quits, John.

  15. Joe Stalin may replace this guy… June 15, 2006, David Magadan was fired from the Padres organization as their hitting coach due to an NL-low .252 batting average. According to an article at Padres.com, Magadan was “shocked” to be let go.

    On October 20, 2006, Magadan was named hitting coach for the Boston Red Sox. Time to shock Dave again. If you can’t fire half the team then fire the ex Met who is coaching them.
