" Jeff Frye. You're telling me he was a user? Troy O'Leary. Nomar. Varitek would probably wring your neck if you suspected him. Same with Trot - he spent hours and hours in the weight room. I'm trying to think back to my teams. Pedro. John Valentin. Even Mo Vaughn wasn't that big. I've just rattled off eight or 10 names. I can't imagine that any of them were doing anything. "

Renter-Error Rips Rabid Red Sox Fans
"I don't think those fans have any confidence in their players. That's why they didn't win the World Series before. "
-Edgar Renteria on his Boston Borne throat ailment.
Blame it on the rain, Edgar.
In a city where they actually care about baseball,
You and your child bearing hips aren't missed.
Red Sox Nation Says:
Edgar Renteria just couldn't handle the pressure. The Sox would be better off with a certain West Coast player that can...The O.C., of course. Admit it, you thought we meant Nomah, didn't ya? (Because you brought it up: Garciaparra would be a nice fit at 1b or as a corner OF next season, a much needed RH bat to align with Manny and Papi). With a farm system loaded with middle infielders, the Angels are willing to move Cabrera. With 2 1/2 years and only around $15 million left on his deal, the Sox should be very interested. Would Alex Gonzalez and a mid-level prospect get it done? Well, it wouldn't hurt to ask...
The O.C. thrived in E(6)dgah's personal pressure cooker that is Boston.
Rumors have Cabrera returning to the Red Sox. He has been his usual clutch self both
with the bat and in the field.

First Red Sox Admits To Taking HGH and Amphetamines
Leyritz says he took illegal enhancers
Red Sox Nation Opinion:
Part time, fringe ex-players like Leyritz can freely admit that they cheated without backlash, as 25th men trying to get any edge that they can to arrive and stay in the big leagues can easily be rationalized. They have nothing to lose, and they almost get a pat on the back for admitting it. Confession comes easy for them, and is without repercussion. The stars don't have that luxury of understanding, and the repercussions are limitless.

THE GRIM REAPER
Grimsley throws his baseball pals under the team bus.
Tejada and amphetamines, Palmeiro and steroids, Pujols trainer linked to illegal enhancers. Smokng Gun Link to the Jason Grimsley Afidavit, Search warrant.
Pujols' trainer denies steroid involvement in Grimsley case:
"I can guarantee you that one, too,'' he says. ``I've known Albert since he was 18 years old. Albert won't even drink his protein shakes anymore during the season because he's scared they're contaminated. That's been part of his training for the last five or six years, and all of a sudden he won't even do that. He's tired of it. I'm tired of it. I'm tired of people putting this kid down. He's a great kid. Let him be great. He's clean.''
-Albert Pujol's Trainer Chris Mihlfeld
New England Sports Hub-Red Sox Nation Says:
Unfortunately for Pujols, he is the greatest star in Baseball's version of "The Day After". He is guilty until proven innocent in the eyes of many baseball fans, with innocence proven only at the expense of the Union...Only A blood test, DNA sample, and lie detector test would put these rumors to rest...If PHAT ALBERT was to allow storing of the blood and DNA while awaiting future testing advances. Players simply don't turn their back on other players until their Grim back is against the wall, so any clearing of the Pujols name is highly unlikely to happen. We happen to think that Pujols is clean; He is a well known character guy-How many men, not to mention millionaire athletes-would take on the responsibility that comes with marriage to a woman who is the mother to a mentally and physically challenged child? We would still like to get at that birth certificate, however. Somebody may be 29 for the next 3 years...
- NOMAR AND PEDRO WEAR DODGERS AND METS UNIFORMS, RESPECTIVELY, WHILE RESPECTFULLY FACING EACHOTHER FOR THE FIRST TIME
- NOMAH HITS A HOMAH OFF OF PETEY INTO THE WARM WEST COAST NIGHT
- SURPRISINGLY, THE WORLD DIDN'T END. PEDRO'S TOE DIDN'T FALL OFF, WHILE NOMAR DIDN'T GET HIS GROIN PULLED IN A BAD WAY. NOBODY SLAPPED A PATERNITY SUIT ON DEREK. GRADY STILL WAITED TOO LONG TO PULL OUT A PITCHER.
One Impressed Hamm:
Nomar once again leads the world in hitting, at a grip-n-rip .366, 1000+ obp+slug pace.
