Is there a polite way to point out that (a) many Dominicans have been suspended for PED use, and (b), some of these substances are as easy to get in the Dominican as a bottle of Tylenol? I don't mean that rhetorically, I want to know.
"I tell you, I don’t know too much about steroids, but I started listening about steroids when they started to bring that #### up, and I started realizing and getting to know a little bit about it. You’ve got to be careful. I used to buy a protein shake in my country. I don’t do that any more because they don’t have the approval for that here, so I know that, so I’m off of buying things at the GNC back in the Dominican (Republic). But it can happen anytime, it can happen. I don’t know. I don’t know if I drank something in my youth, not knowing it."
How can it be discriminatory when every single player that plays well at an old age is accused of using drugs?
But you fit all the models. You are from the Dominican Republic.
In all seriousness I agree with you. Jeter is enough of an outlier that it's clear it's not racially motivated it's whatever the hell strange power Jeter has over the press motivated. Shaughnessy is the one who brought up the Dominican angle though. If being Dominican matters then Shaughnessy should back it up, if it doesn't matter then there is no reason for him to mention it. This was Shaughnessy comment in the article;
I just wish it would go away for everyone. That was supposed to be one of the benefits of testing, so we don't have to speculate on who's juicing.
Haha, ah the magical shake.
All of these things have been used as evidence against players of all races and nationalities. We live in a world where people are withholding HOF votes from Craig Biggio because he was a teammate of Caminiti.
You forgot about notorious and proven steroid user Jeff Bagwell.
He managed to fully recover from a very damaging wrist injury, and did so in a way that actually improved his hitting.
How old is Mariano Rivera? Are you shitting me????? How can he NOT be on steroids? He's from Panama, close enough. He plays with ARod. ####, that whole TEAM must be on steroids to be doing that well.
When in doubt, play the race card.
.He managed to fully recover from a very damaging wrist injury, and did so in a way that actually improved his hitting.
This is an argument on his behalf?
Is there a member of the Red Sox front office Bud Selig could appoint to perform an I vesting action of the Yankees PED use? Again, I mean?
That stupid argument again?
Why didn't Mitchell solve the Jack the Ripper murders while he was at it?
Because Mel Parnell was in fact Jack The Ripper.

It is if you realize that he also overcame a severe cookie addiction.
