In Response to Re: Giambi Juice
[QUOTE] Nobody is proven to be on the list of the 104 players caught juicing in 2003. A-Rod was suspected of being on the list, and he admitted to taking roids, so we assume that he is on the list. Ortiz is simply rumored to be on the list, and while I won't say that he definitely din't juice, his body hasn't changed since he came up with Minnesota, plus his best seasons were , from 1 to 4, 2005, 2006, 2004, and 2007- all after they started testing. Finally, the only player who definitely juiced that still denies juicing is Sammy Sosa- not exactly Papi personality wise. For the naysayers who say that nobody admits to taking roids, even Bonds has owned up by now. As for Manny, he definitely juiced in 2008 and apparently this year, but there is no proof that the rumors of him being on "the list" in 2003 are true. Last time I checked, juicing doesn't help your swing, and Manny had the best swing I ever saw.

Barry Bonds had a great swing, too. he rarely swung and missed. Sammy Sosa had a great swing. So did Mark McGwire, thought the teeny strike zone helped him elevate those thigh high strikes into the seats. Who doesn't have a great swing? Mantle had a great swing, and Musial. Lou Piniella had a great swing. So did Tony oliva and Rod carew. What, do you go to the ballpark and say, "hey, that was a GREAT swing !!That's the best I ever saw ??" ???? What the hey IS a great swing? All swings are great when you make contact with the ball....
Robinson Cano has a great swing, and he's a steroid user no doubt. A-Rod, great swing. 'Roids. Have you watched Teixeira swing the bat? What a great swing, from both sides of the plate! I've never heard an announcer having a conversation with another announcer about 'great swings".
