Too Much Fire field reporter Brian Fantana has sent in his latest article, focusing on the young MLB season in STEROID WATCH 2012.
With all of focus on Ozzie Guillen being a communist and the Jose Reyes/Hanley Ramirez bromance, no one seems to have noticed Omar Infante’s steroids in his locker. Only once in his career has Omar hit over 10 home runs and in the first two weeks of 2012 he has 4. I’m not a mathematician but I can tell you he is on pace for quite a bit more than 10 this year and we will be keeping an eye on his continued production.
Good ol’ George has always been kicked around as a committee catcher. Looks like he got sick of it this winter and decided to juice up. A slugging percentage of 1.067 to start the year? That’s more than double any previous season’s percentage – didn’t think anyone would notice George? This is why no one trusts you calling a major league game. He’s the kid who stole the answers to the test and didn’t know to get at least 1 or 2 wrong.
You would think that anyone doing well on the Orioles would be on this watch list but Nolan raises specific suspicion. If he equals last year’s total of 87 games played he is on pace for 34 home runs – last year he hit 13. Nearly tripled his production in the off season? This whole situation reeks of steroids and stale crab cakes.
Yoenis’ presence on this list should be no surprise. I mean it must suck to always be introduced as Cuban Defect Cespedes. I bet you he wishes he paid more attention in biology class so he could be Dr. Cespedes – or really anything other than Cuban Defect. Anyways – he’s Cuban, abandoned his family and friends in Cuba – and he possesses the “do anything to win” attitude that Irv Blitzer had in Cool Runnings, aka CHEATER.
Check back in with us throughout the season for updates on these
likely alleged cheaters and of course additions to the list.
