I posted this in the other McGwire thread but felt it warranted a thread of its own.
ESPN.com news services
Five days before the House Government Reform Committee is scheduled to question current and former major-league baseball players about steroids, one
of the subpoened players, Mark McGwire
, has emerged as a prominent figure of a month-long investigation by the New York Daily News.
Citing FBI sources, the newspaper reported that McGwire's name came up several
times in a landmark anabolic steroids investigation that led to
70 convictions in the early 1990s.
While evidence against McGwire was never collected and he was not a target in the investigation, two steroid dealers caught in the probe told the
Daily News that another dealer provided McGwire and Jose Canseco, among others, with illegal anabolic steroids.
According to one of the informants, who the FBI said provided credible information throughout its probe, McGwire's regimen reportedly included
injecting himself in the buttocks once every three days with two testosterone substances and weekly with another.
Now I'm all for innocent until proven guilty, but this sure makes my presumptions that much stronger.
