I'm guessing a lot of people are in shock right now hence the lack of posts...

Anyway Clemens is on this list but his agent claims he only takes "B-12" shots and would pass any drug test - sound familiar?

Gibbons, Roberts and Tejada all steroid users? I'm shocked but wouldn't be majorly surprised if its true.

Ugh! :mad:

Another interesting point to consider:

Since June, he has complained to friends that federal agents credited him with statements and disclosures he didn't make.

"Jason is loyal to the death, a hard-headed guy who would not give up his friends," one of Grimsley's friends said Saturday. "The only names he discussed with those investigators were names ... [the investigators] suggested to him."

Grimsley was pressured by the Feds who already suspected that Gibbons, Roberts and Tejada etc. were users. How did they know? Palmeiro? Canseco?

Grimsley doesn't have a ton of credibility, wake me up when someone fails a drug test. Can't say I am that surprised, if there were three players to suspect, those would be the three.
If Grimsley is lying on a federal affadavit, he is in deeper trouble than he already is. The penalty for each count of perjury could each mean an additional five years in jail. The federal court system does not take lying lightly.

Can the news get much worse for the Orioles?

It could get much worse for the federal agent for "pressuring" names through suggestions... and possibly leading Grimsley to perjury.

Like MurphDogg said.. I call shenanigans until someone fails a drug test. The public may boo Bonds about it, but he's a slimeball anyway.

Players I don't believe are Pettitte and Roberts.

    • I loved the Queen pick at the time.  He was the guy I wanted.  In hindsight, one of those receivers would’ve been nice. 
    • Well, the highest scores weren’t that good compared to most weeks  
    • Here’s the thing though..Hamilton was thought of, by many, as a top 5 player in the draft and he dropped back they questioned his speed/range late in the process. Queen was a guy who was viewed as a young, undersized Lber who needed to develop. Many thought he was the best LBer but still a borderline first round pick. I didn’t love the pick because of the position. But that being said, where else should they have gone?  Who was the guy you wanted at that time? I wanted a WR and wanted them to trade up for Lamb and then I was interested in Jefferson.  This is where I wish they would be more aggressive. But in terms of guys who went after him?  Pittman and Huggins have been good but I don’t recall wanting them with our first rounder.  There was talk of Epenesa and you could have justified Winfield Jr and I remember liking Xavier McKinney.  He was mentioned by many as a top 25ish pick.  
    • Anyone know what Queen’s PFF score was yesterday?  It might’ve been the worst game by a linebacker that I’ve ever seen. 
    • And all of this is why I don’t think you can assume he will be an elite defender next year. Sure, guys develop and they do it on different schedules and yes, the Orioles may just know how to develop defense better than other teams. But still, when a player has a history of X, they tend to revert back to that. As I said, I think it’s fair to think he gives you above average defense next year. I do think it’s wrong to ASSUME elite level defense.
    • I’m traumatized by Patrick Queen. 
    • In the Bills previous 10 games (including postseason), they have had gone over 350 yards in 9 of them and 8 of them were over 400 yards. In this game, the Ravens held them to 328 yards, which is the second fewest over that time period.    They also let up the second fewest points in a game over that time period, only bested by the 19 Miami let you last year. The defense may have struggled at the end but they played well overall and certainly good enough to win. And they did this without Houston, who is the best pass rusher on the team.
