Canseco isn't a likable guy, doesn't mean he wasn't telling the truth. His stories might have been over the top but when you get him, Raffy, McGwire and Sosa in front of Congress...well, one of those guys was telling the truth and not hiding from what was going on. Sure, he sold a book, maybe some of the stories were a bit over the top. But just because he was the poster boy for PEDs doesn't make him a liar.
Severino, the Yankees’ important right-handed starter, has been shut down due to right forearm soreness. Severino, 25, also has a loose body in his right elbow, the manager added, and suddenly a real possibility exists that the Yankees will open the season without Severino as well as James Paxton (back surgery), who will be out until at least May and the suspended Domingo German, who is eligible to return on June 5 after completing his 81-game sentence (started with 18 games last year) for domestic violence offenses.
The Yankees hope to have team physician Christopher Ahmad examine Severino here on Friday.
Severino received anti-inflammatories and had been throwing on flat ground again, but only fastballs and sliders. When Severino “re-entered” his changeup, as Boone put it, the pain re-emerged, prompting the shutdown.
Canseco told all kinds of crazy, over-the-top tabloid stories that had a grain of truth hidden in there somewhere. Canseco is one of those people for whom the actual truth is too boring, his version of life needs to be more like a comic book.
Look I see plenty of guys who go the gym and even guys that use trainers. What you are saying doesn’t ring true. Show me scientific studies not some journalism major just spouting off with no basis on fact. If it were so easy for athletes to get jacked in an off season like Chris than more guys would be doing it.
