Game of Shadows

I've never read the book... but Dan Patrick said (on his show today) that the book reported that Bond's shoe size grew from 10.5 to 13 (which indicates HGH)

Has anyone read G of S?

Conversely, I've read that a side effect of 'roids is "shrinkage". If all this is true, I guess this would be one instance where the old saying about foot size doesn't work. :eek:

I haven't read it, but I had roomates at Towson who were taking 'roids and HGH. The "shrinkage" you refer to would be to the berries and not the twig, if I may be allowed to use such an expession (if not, I beg for mercy from the moderators). It's the HGH that would make your feet grow, your head, etc. And I'd like to add that this is what my roommates told me, not what I saw or experienced!

Incidentally, of my 3 roomates who were all very much into weightlifting and training, one took HGH and steroids, one just took steroids, and one only took legal, over the counter supplements. The "all natural" guy looked the smallest but was the strongest -- anecdotal evidence to be sure, and indicative of nothing, probably. The HGH / steroids roomate puffed up real quickly.

And me? I was too busy playing NHL Hockey on my Sega and, uh, 'experimenting' with other illicit substances to bother going to the gym, much less spend money on drugs that didn't make me appreciate 'Drums / Space' from RFK '72! Ah well, live and learn...and then probably forget...

They accused of bonds feet growing from size 9-12 which is very odd since I dont think a 6'2 person would wear such small shoes.

    • 09 romorr: Would you do a Hall/Cowser trade for Brandon Woodruff?     1:09  Dan Szymborski: I might     1:09  Dan Szymborski: I’d want an extension window     1:10  Dan Szymborski: I think the Orioles should be adding talent, but I think in FA right now     1:10  Dan Szymborski: I think you don’t start cashing in everyone until you have MORE confirmation that you’re good
    • Tampa is a purely transactional team like the A’s.   The Orioles have more resources and can be a hybrid much like the Indians or Mariners.  They can lay out for one or two big free agent contracts and extend their own players.   They will begin being more transactional in 3-4 years when the first wave of players gets closer to free agency.
    • Are the O's willing to participate in the posting process?
    • I wonder if this guy could be a second pitching addition for us.   Seems like he might make a good long reliever/spot starter. https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2022/12/npbs-hanshin-tigers-post-shintaro-fujinami.html  
    • I wimped out and said 120-139.  I really want the answer to be 140-159.   But I’m guessing the cap will be right around 140 or just under.   One factor could be how many pitches Grayson is throwing to get through these innings.  In his pre-injury outings, he was cruising along at 14.9 pitches per inning.   Those are very low stress innings.  But if Grayson finds himself throwing 18 pitches per inning next year in the majors, that’s a different ballgame.  
    • A little short on job title, but as a grateful longtime reader from back in the day, noticed this in Szymborski's chat today. SEA is one of those teams gotta fight past for AL top 6 in the shorter term. 1:06 Josh R: Noticed this in a transactions list :                                      Mariners Named Dave Cameron senior director, player procurement,                                                 Is this the former FanGraphs Dave Cameron?     1:06  Dan Szymborski: Yes     1:06  Dan Szymborski: (Sorry, was making sure he made it official or I couldn’t say anything)     1:06  Dan Szymborski:     Dave Cameron @OneDaveCameron     I should probably mention this now that it’s official. I get to do some really cool stuff for the @Mariners going forward. Quite a journey from @ussmariner (or asbs-m for us extra old people) to now. I couldn’t be more excited. Sincere thank you to all.
