The Roid Over
Listening to Dan Patrick interview Brian Cashman on ESPN Radio today, and George's whipping boy brought up a good point: why has the media stirred up such a controversy over Jason Giambi when Sheff is the one that admitted he loaded up the elephant growth hormones?
The Incredible Shrinking 1st Baseman supposedly copped to roiding up in his testimony before a grand jury in the BALCO case, but since those docs are sealed, the only evidence we have is an anonymous source in the San Francisco Chronicle. Hardly enough to hang the man, if you ask me. Compound that with his press conference at Yankee Stadium yesterday, where he never once let the word steroid slip out of his mouth, and you may as well be trying to prove that the Tyrannosaurus Rex was pink with blue polka-dots.
My guess? It's because Sheff's Chefs don't sell editions of the New York Post (unless his wife is involved in a sex scandal with R. Kelly).
