    On radio before the game, he said he was getting better, still not great, and will just have to see. Plans on being back in a reasonable amount of time, but a little upset at the early deadlines everyone (Cubs included) have set for him. Says if it won't heal he will do his damndest to suck it up and try to go anyway.

        Such a promising career. Over before it started.

        It's a shame. But you play with steroid fire, you get burned.
        I'm always right.

          Yup. This injury is indeed a problem.

          Not to mention that little drug addiction I hear (on the down-low) he battled during the off-season.

            Not if his father (huge influence on him his entire baseball career) has anything to say about it.

              Until I see something believeable about Prior being on steroids, I'll chalk up all accounts of it to jealous Cardinal fans. Not all Cardinal fans, just the jealous ones.

              I don't believe there's an ounce of truth to that rumor.

                If he could somehow prove he was clean

                1. What a damn good player

                2. Many have some apologizing to do

                I am not ready to say he did for sure yet. Maybe I'm unwilling to accept my game is tainted.

                    The signs I see with Bonds are...

                    1) You just dont start adding muscle mass the way he did in his late 30's.
                    2) His hat size grew about what, six sizes practically in one off season?

                    Same is true with Sosa - another player I have no doubt is on the juice.

                    Sad thing is - I have heard that steroids don't actually make you hit a ball farther - it's more about bat speed that strength. I don't know if I buy that, but I can see where having more muscles would make it harder to keep the bat speed up.

                      Not trying to be a homer, but why Sosa? He wasn't that old when he put on the muscle, and did change his entire approach to hitting, as anyone can see the differences in his stance from '97 to '98 and on.

                        that may be (to a homer), but it's hard to fathom increasing your home run total by 34 in one season, for one example.

                        Secondly, face it, Cubs, the man physically blew up...I mean as it he had his lips locked on an air pressure valve. Ironically, he is much smaller than he was 2 years ago and even last year.

                        Coincidence...maybe? I'll reserve judgement. Although, since we both reside in the Chicago area (I believe you do, also) we've heard the down-low rumblings of his usage for several years now.

                        Lastly, its difficult for me to believe the denials of a man caught using cork and, basically, denying he corked his bat.

                          No, sorry.

                          The cork thing did hurt, as my judgement of him personally changed, but he did hit 40 two years before and may have gotten 50 that year barring injury. And then the next year he sucked, perhaps got cocky over a good year, and then went all out. Who knows? You may be right.
