Here come the steroid era apologists

In 1998? It wasn't the players who were juiced, dude. It was the ball!

"Examining the CT images of Mark McGwire's 70th home run ball one can clearly see the synthetic ring around the core -- or 'pill' -- of the baseball," UMS president David Zavagno said.
The ball wasn't only juiced, it was on the pill too!? Maybe we need an investigation to try to find out who's trying to sex up baseballs because those are perverts of the highest order. Unless juicing up and going on the pill were part of the hormonal training regiment. Somebody get Canseco on the phone.
"While Mark McGwire may or may not have used illegal steroids, the evidence shows his ball -- under the governing body of the league -- was juiced."
That there just doesn't sound right. Why would McGwire be juicing up a testicle? And if he was going to go to the trouble, why juice up only one testicle and not both? Somebody's not connecting the dots here. There's a testicular mystery and we need to get somebody on the case.
