Did you smoke pot when you played for the Sox?
According to High Times I didn’t smoke it, but I ingested it other ways. What I said was that I put it on my buckwheat pancakes in the morning, which made me impervious to the bus fumes.
Did you smoke weed on days that you pitched, and did it help your performance on the mound?
You know, I did perform with it. I had good games. I had bad games. I never used it as a crutch. It never enhanced, you know? I would say it’s not something kids should do before a ball game. In fact, I don’t think you should use it before you’re 21 years of age.
I don’t smoke anymore, per se. I have on occasion. People tend to bring me weed all the time because of who I am but I don’t…
Why don’t you smoke anymore?
Because smoking isn’t good for you. There are other ways, though. I like brownies.
But the counterargument to what you’re saying is that guys like Jhonny Peralta and Barry Bonds broke the rules and got an unfair advantage over the guys who were following them.
I listened to the rules and I ended up the same way. I was injected by the team physician. I was given this by the pharmaceutical corporation. It’s the same thing they were doing. I see no difference. That’s the hypocrisy.
What’s your World Series prediction?
Red Sox over St. Louis in four straight.
