Richard Griffin is a joke
The 1998 Jays were not on steroids, Griffin insisted this week in his brilliantly titled article http://www.thestar.com/Sports/Baseball/article/412795
He states:Start with yesterday's assertion on the drug habits of the '98 Jays. Let's see, Paul Quantrill, Dan Plesac, Pat Hentgen, Woody Williams, Chris Carpenter ... that's already five guys clearly not on steroids. So, according to Canseco, everyone else was.
Uh, clearly not on steroids? What does that mean? Did Nook Logan look like he was on the 'roids
? Or maybe Richie has the XRay
He continues on with this little gem:Excuse me, Jose. Just because three years ago you told the truth when nobody believed you doesn't mean that you must be believed every time you speak now and for the rest of your life. It's a reverse chronology of the boy that cried wolf. Being truthful the first time the wolf is on the doorstep doesn't give you a lifetime pass for integrity.
Now, please tell me what in the sweet fcuk
this is supposed to mean? Just because you told the truth once doesn't mean we have to believe you now. Brilliant, just brilliant!
Anyhow, jump ahead 2 DAYS! in his own paper and we find this:
http://www.thestar.com/Sports/Baseball/article/413543Ed Sprague, one of the Blue Jays' heroes from the World Series years in 1992-93, admitted this week that he used performance-enhancing substances that were later banned by Major League Baseball, and also hit with a corked bat in a big-league game.
So, from that wonderful '98 team we now have 2 admitted users and Roger Clemens. And on Richie's side we have his XRay
powers and a bunch of nothing.
Another rousing article Griffin. Bravo!
