What does Rick Sutcliffe think about drinking and driving?

  1. I didn't know Hank Aaron used 'performance enhancing' drugs'! Pleas enlighten me, what exactly did he do???

  2. There's no evidence that "performance enhancing" drugs drastically enhance a players, um, performance, either. Doesn't stop people from definitively asserting otherwise.

  3. Anyway, I think you're missing the ironic point, which is that "I only tried it once to see what all of the fuss is about" would never suffice as an excuse for someone who was juicing in the mid-90's.

  4. @a57se

    "Spikes" in performance do not necessarily indicate PED usage or do you think Roger Maris was juicing in 1961? And by the way, Aaron did have what could be considered "spikes" in his HR totals between 1956 and 1957 (26 to 44, a new career high by 17) and from 1964 to 1967 (24,32, 44, 39 – to be fair he started playing in the Atlanta "launching pad" in 1966).

    Actually, I do think that steroids can help players build strength and muscle mass (note: this is a non-scientific opinion based on anecdotal evidence) both directly and via enhancement of physical training but it's impossible to quantify the enhancement effect. Also, PEDs cannot add skill or turn an ordinary player into a great one.
