I'm shocked, shocked I tell you, I thought he only stuck to "cortisone".

The guy also backtracked who "outed" the athletes. Seems less credible than the Biogenesis scandal from years back.

I kind of just assume anymore that any athlete who's in their late 30's and still performing at a high level is probably taking something, and that includes my Tom Terrific :(

Poor Ryan Howard, I never would have suspected someone so bad of dropping

Zim should appeal until he gets hurt, then drop the appeal

Can the Nats void Zim's contract if he's a cheater? If so this is the best thing that could have happened.

Remember those couple months where Zimm was having those cortisone shots in his shoulder and all of a sudden he was superhuman?

Doubt it.

I don't know, Manning's agent's reply that Peyton did nothing wrong but whatever treatment his wife was getting is private between her and her drs. I mean, it sort of seems like when Clemens set his wife up to take the fall for his HGH use.

If the Yankees couldn't do it with ARod, the answer is no.

That's not how HGH works

It helps a body heal, doesn't it? I'm always so confused why HGH is considered so bad.

the article says that Zimm was getting a drug that is like a steroid.   But with "sly" retracting his claims I don't see how this becomes any more than a he-said / he-said unless MLB decides to push the issue.

This looks to have even less factual evidence than the Biogenesis report. At least with that there was a written (terribly) ledger with Biogenesis. While I doubt Zim is totally innocent, I doubt there is anything nearly close enough to incriminate.

Sure, he'll probably escape a 50 game suspension, but look at Gio's drop off since 2012, it's likely that we may never see the old Zimmerman again.

They don't have the Lerner's legal team.

Remember when Nook Logan was named as a steroid user?
