Not-So-Blind Item

From Boz today, on the taint of steroids.
Three years ago, every baseball player was a suspected cheat. In '05, new Nats GM Jim Bowden stared at a player who'd been an Expos standout. "He looks smaller this year," Bowden said. By the next year the player had been traded.

Hmmm... WHOEVER could that be?

Might as well have said "left-handed, sometimes first baseman who strikes out too much."


  • What a surprise, stop juicin', stop juicin, the ball. BTW, CBS Sportlines is reporting the Nats have signed Pete Orr to a minor league deal.

  • I thought you were going to link to Terrmel Sledge at first.

  • even more ironic when you remember who bitched about him not being able to play hurt

  • Anon: Terrmel Sledge was only an Expo standout in the eyes of Bill Ladson.

  • I remember that first season when MASN ran those really cheesy bank ads with Wilkerson as the spokesman, and it was comical how much smaller Wilkerson was at the time compared to the guy who had filmed that commercial in the offseason.

  • Because of the delay in a Nationals' response to the Mitchell Report,is it possible that they are tempting to find another catcher and void, terminate or let LoDuca go because of his involvement in the steroid issue?

  • Hooker:

    Nice try. We are stuck with Lo Duschca for the year. MLB is going to stall any league wide action for some time, which means we'll stick with the guy. Which sucks!

  • "The Nationals signed free agent catcher Paul Lo Duca, an all-star four times, for the curiously low price of $5 million for one year"

    Sorry, Boz lost me right here.
