Yeah, it changed drastically in that people don't have free reign to use anything they want anymore, now they have to pick and choose the stack that
in order to stay under the radar. Now the testing is a joke, it really is. A buddy of mine had a chance to interview Canseco after he wrote his
book. Basically the MLB was in such a #hole financially in the late 90's, managers and owners told players to do anything to get them out of the
slump. No one cared about baseball, they were losing viewers, and money was not being made. The managers knew what was going on with the drugs and
they basically upped everything, training, hired better trainers, nutritionists, etc., and this led to the boom in profits for the MLB and more
attention. So much more work was put in to turn the MLB around and basically it worked.
Here is Victor Conte, former owner of BALCO has to say on the current state of the MLB.
"Conte estimates that "as much as half" of current players in Major League Baseball are using performance-enhancing drugs of some kind."
"I'm not going to name names," Conte told Nightengale, "but I've talked to a lot of top players in Major League Baseball, and they tell me this
is what they're doing. There is rampant use of synthetic testosterone in Major League Baseball.""
And the response
"There is no way that Victor Conte would have information that would allow him to have any basis on that," MLB vice president Rob Manfred said.
"He's just making that up. It's a guess. We use the very best, most sophisticated methodologies that are available."
The response couldn't be more garbage.
"We use the very best most sophisticated methodologies that are available" false
"just making that up. It's a guess." false
Coming from the kingpin of the steroid era with many connections even today, I think I believe Conte and everyone else who knows that they are talking
about. The MLB is has more propaganda than Baghdad Bob, they want you to believe they are a clean culture.
Canseco even answers questions now I guess on a forum and he will answer them if you want to have a go at it, don't know if its against the rules
here to post a roid forum (even though they only sell knock off proprietary supplements sounding like real steroids, aka scam company). I never
actually watched any of these videos though I usually stay away from that forum but I just skimmed them and he has a video on Lance.
BTW, did anyone catch the Lance interview? I haven't yet?
