    December 17, 2007:
    Random Stuff…

    Posted by Christine E. at 6:24 pm in Random Thoughts,Red Sox Comment (1)

    You would think that less than a week after a major shakeup in major League baseball, that there would still be more stuff to talk about….but another slow news day–4 days after the Mitchell Report!

    An honorable Yankee? Say it isn’t so! But it’s true. Andy Pettitte actually did the right thing over the weekend, when he came out and admitted that he did HGH when he was rehabbing his 2002 elbow injury: “If what I did was an error in judgment on my part, I apologize…I accept responsibility for those two days. Everything else written or said about me knowingly using illegal drugs is nonsense, wrong, and hurtful. I have the utmost respect for baseball and have always tried to live my life in a way that would be honorable. I wasn’t looking for an edge; I was looking to heal.”

    Now the big question that everyone in the press is asking is will his heterosexual life partner Mercenary Roger come clean as well…Are you *^#()@*&*(#&@*( KIDDING me? Roger? Admit he cheated? The man does not have one ounce of conscience, or remorse…Hell WILL freeze over before he will admit to anything. AS a matter of fact, he probably thinks he is entitled to whatever he needs to excel….cause he’s a MERCENARY….I really REALLY hope there aren’t still folks out there who actually still think Roger is worthy of any type of admiration…

    It’s interesting to note that with Pettitte’s admission, he actually corroborates the testimony of Brian McNamee, the trainer who allegedly injected Roger with steroids, and Pettitte with the HGH…

    Brendan Donnelly has come out with a statement with regard to his name being part of the Mitchell Report: According to a former clubhouse attendant from the Mets named Kirk Radomski, who testified that Donnelly called him when he was injured in 2004 looking for Anavar, an anabolic steroid. While Donnelly confirms he called Radomski to discuss the steroid, he opted not to purchase the drug: “Upon learning that Anavar was classified as a steroid, I realized that was not an option…that was the end of it. Yes, I called him. But I did not purchase or receive anything from him. I never took Deca or Anavar.” The Mitchell report said Radomski made one sale of Deca-Durabolin to Donnelly, for which he was paid between $250 to $300.

      Christine, I thought the same thing about Pettitte: he took responsibility, didn’t blame some tainted substance, etc.. The only problem I had was with his “If it was an error in judgement” line.

      Donnelly is an interesting one for me: the guy seems like he’s honest to a fault and up front with everything, so I almost believe him. I may try to post about this: I wonder what I would do if it was me? It’s easy to say “No way” from the outside.

      Anyway, hope all is well.
