Yeah, his dad was spending $1,500 a month on perfectly legal weight loss products that cost $30 a pop online.
Yes, ha ha ha...
Again, you're proposing that Gio bought in February but his father bought the rest of the time.
The obvious question, why would Gio buy at all if his father was his go-between? Also, what about the previous years? Gio was a slightly better pitcher last year, moving to the NL, than he was in previous seasons. Did Gio buy then or was he also using his father? Or is he new to the steroid game?
If he was new to the steroid game, what would have been the point? He'd already signed his extension so it wasn't money. Prepping for his next contract, perhaps?
Also, it's not unreasonable that his father didn't know what the drugs he was using cost. He's like almost every other American, in that respect. Try getting an aspirin from a hospital.
