    Good, i never thought that viagra taking stat compiler deserved to be in the hall of fame. This just sealed the deal. Looks like Canseco was right!! Didn't he mention Palmeiro in his book??

    Didn't take too long to nab the 1st big name 'roid abuser. Glad to see the random testing is working.

    How long before Raffy's press conference when he says "I didn't know Viagra came through under steriod testing?"

    NEW YORK (SI.com) -- Rafael Palmeiro, who last month became the fourth member of baseball's 3,000-hit, 500-home run club, tested positive for steroids, SI.com's Tom Verducci has confirmed.

    The penalty for a first offense under baseball's drug-testing plan is a 10-day suspension.

    Yep, the O's radio announcer team is dicussing the suspention right now here on D.C. radio in their pre-game talk.

    Shame, I always liked Raffy and thought he was a good player. Sad to watch the players you grew up liking fall one afetr the other (I liked Big Mac too...)

    I guess Canseco might actually be credible??

    Raffy is dumb... he was so close to 3,000 hits this year - why still take them?

    wow just when the whole steriods thing starts to die down a bit

    WHAM the biggest name to test positive comes out

    I still believe that the reason Bonds hasn't played a game this year is cause he is afraid of either
    A) Testing positive himself
    or
    B) Playing so horrible that people will believe that he must have been on steriods
