Ankiel powers Cards' rain-shortened rout of Bucs

What a great story this is. He couldn't hit the broad side of a barn if he was standing five feet away a few years ago when he was pitching, but now, he's completely lighting it up for the Cardinals as a power hitter. Ita amazing that he got so good at hitting so fast.

ITs also nice to hear a story about someone who ISN'T affiliated with the Yankees.

AVG .358 | HR 9 | RBI 29 | OBP .409 | SLG .765

That's in 23 games and 81 at bats.

Wow!

Just when there is a feel good story. Bam, something like this comes out. A test needs to be figured out, and quickly for this stuff.

yeah, I really loved the ankiel story but I have come to expect this sort of news somehow.

If A-Rod or pujols ever gets called out for steriods, thats it for me

If a story sounds too good to be true, it is.

Wouldn't that be sopmething? Hopefully it doesn't get that far, although it would beinteresting to see Selig try to worm out of that one.

A-rod and Pujols are both using roids/hgh...

Funny.

Anybody can just name names. Got proof? I doubt it.

While I don't absolutely think they are both clean, I would be kind of surprised about those two. I also don't point fingers until there is reason to, as there has been no stories about either one, I don't see reason.

I have no question that pujols is on roids. The evidence is his own body and face. it couldn't be more obvious that he is a juicer.

As for A-rod i have no evidence, but i still suspect he is on HGH.

So you're just part of the witch hunt.

And you're part of the public that has bought into what they are selling hook line and sinker. And won't accept what right in front of you.

Let me guess, Bonds doesnt/didnt take anything but the clear either?

In some cases there are signs that point to it, they arent just random occurances. Or natural changes of the body. Personally in A-Rods case, yes, that's more of a witch hunt. He's doing well so it's automatically an illegal substance. But others there is actual evidence aside from performance.

I gave you evidence with Pujols. Its not a witch hunt. He is a juicer. As for A-rod, I admit that I don't have evidence, but given his performance I am extremely suspicious in this day and age. I think baseball is rotten to the core when it comes to all the doping, sorry.
