Schmidt, in camp until March 20 as a special instructor, said he is concerned about players such as Mike Piazza and Craig Biggio being “lumped in with guys who have a stronger relationship with the PED issue.”
“If a guy played and had great numbers in his generation, ask yourself if he was involved,” Schmidt said. “It’s just too bad. I think time will cure that. I really do think Biggio and Piazza will eventually become Hall of Famers.
“The guys who failed tests or the facts show or they admitted they were involved with PED use, that’s one thing. But to assume a guy did because his teammate did or he has a big neck or a big head or there was a spike in his numbers, to assume that is not right.”
whenever I hear Schmidt talk about steroids, I always feel like he has something he'd really like to get off his chest, but can't.
Sean, I think I remember Schmidt being implicated in the Reading doctor story with Rose and others.
Michael Young is like Derek Jeter without the speed, walks or, well, defense
Two more "Michael Young" years would give him 2600 hits, with a chance to limp to 3000. That's his only path to Cooperstown.
“I sort of ride the fence on that whole steroid era issue,” Schmidt said.
