    Wells weighs in: Palmeiro should take lie detector test
    Associated Press

    PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Boston Red Sox left-hander David Wells said Thursday that he believes there are major-league players probably still using steroids.

    "There's no question in my mind that there's a lot of guys out there still that are probably on them," Wells said in an interview on WSKO in Providence. "I mean, they're just playing Russian Roulette."

    Wells said he has been tested for steroids three times this year "and, quite frankly, I'm starting to lose my cool."

    He added that the testers should "go to the guys who have been losing weight dramatically, are not as big as they were last year, listen to their excuses" and test them.

    Wells also offered his take on Rafael Palmeiro, saying a lie detector test may be the best method to show when the Baltimore Orioles first baseman used steroids. He said Palmeiro's accomplishments should be removed from baseball's record books if he used them for a while.

    "The best way to solve it is probably a lie detector test and put him on it and say, 'How long have you been doing it, when did you take them, for what part of your career?' " Wells said.

    "If he's been doing it a while, then go ahead and erase [his accomplishments]. It's a shame to do it, but you know you have to do it."

    Wells' remarks came one day after his teammate, Curt Schilling, said on WEEI radio in Boston that Palmeiro has "no credibility" to talk about steroids, and his achievements should be wiped from the record books. Those remarks echo those of Washington Nationals manager Frank Robinson, who hit 586 homers.

    Palmeiro has 3,020 hits and 569 homers. He was suspended for 10 days on Aug. 1 for using steroids, and has claimed that he didn't know how it got in his body. He has been advised by his attorneys not to comment on his situation until Congress concludes its investigation of his case.

    "Personally, I liked him as a person," Wells said of Palmeiro. "He's a great guy but he cheated and that doesn't sit well with me."

          I don't mind the comments... I was wondering what other players were thinking anyhow. I think it's interesting.

          Now whether or not they're attention whores...

                Great!!

                Shilling's illegitimate twin in diarrhea-of-the-mouth decides to make his opinion known.

                Ironic how a majority of these guys can barely muster an audible "no comment" when the tables of controversy are turned onto them.

                  Agree. After two words, I expected:

                    So you guys don't like Wells and Schilling?

                    Or disagree with their opinions?

                      Just want them to STFU once in a while - especially Schilling.

                        Agree with Schilling on this matter.


                        Fucking hate him though.

                            I agree they need to STFU more often than not, but maybe this time they're the only ones with the balls to say it.
