Blue Jays Steroids

Birds on Roids


George Mitchell's long awaited steroid report (PDF) was released today and in it are a number of current and former Blue Jays accused of possible use of the banned drug. Among those named include current catcher Greg Zaun, infielders Howie Clark and Troy Glaus, and former Jays Roger Clemens, Benito Santiago, Glenallen Hill, David Segui and Jose Canseco.

If anything, the report should convince everyone that steroids don't make an All-Star or a Home Run champion. Many of the names on the list are no-names that the casual baseball fan wouldn't recognize. I say, who cares? I'm not more or less of a fan now of Greg Zaun than I was this morning. He's still a borderline starting catcher and there isn't anything steroids or any other wonder drug is going to do to change that.
