So now we get the outright denials from guys like Clemens, we have Pettite admitting to using HGH on doctor's orders and the Cabrera defense (my
these guys all got busted and, in some cases, they lied about their usage repeatedly (Clemens) and in other cases they were linked to steroids and
denied them and now they need to save face. They all need to do whatever they can to salvage careers, reputations etc. It's sad and comical.
Clemens says he never took them and his former trainer, who he praised for years, is a liar. Then his close bud, who also trains with Mac, comes out
and says he did use HGH but a doctor suggested it. So now Mac looks like he might not be lying. Clemens has one course of action after opening his
mouth. Sue for libel and defamation of character. Let the courts sift thru it all. He won't do it because he's guilty and everyone knows it, just
like everyone knows that doctors only prescribe HGH for dwarfism and AIDS and Pettite is neither a dwarf or an AIDS patient.
All the lies, the denials, the invented excuses in the world don't hold a candle to Alex Cabrera's most recent statement.
Cabrera was with the Diamond Backs when a box was found in the clubhouse. The box contained a ton of diet pills and steroids. The box was sent to
the commissioner's office by Garagiola, then the GM of the D'Backs. The substances were tested and the results were Stanozol and diet pills. the
results came back after Cabrera had been sold to the Seibu Lions.
So what does Cabrera do when he finds his name in the Mitchell Report? He says "I couldn't have used the substances that are identified,I never had
possession of the alleged box that supposedly contained the pharmaceutical drugs."
Of all the denials and excuses so far, this one is definitely the only one that somehow makes sense.
