They served a suspension. What more would you desire? Waterboarding
John Iatesta's comment, March 28, 2013 8:15 PM
I just want baseball to be consistent. If you're against steroids and PEDs be strongly against it and totally discourage it. If you're not then allow it but don't take this middle of the road approach they have been. For what it's worth, Barry Bonds is my favorite baseball player of all time, so I am not one to hate players for taking PEDs or being suspected of it

What research is there that says HGH helps a player hit a baseball?
John Iatesta's comment, March 28, 2013 8:14 PM
There isn't any but it helps with recovery and muscle growth
Kraig Debro's comment, March 29, 2013 9:54 AM
I agree, great point, but because of that don't you think the reaction to the efficacy of HGH is overblown in the press/among fans? Even if a pitcher is throwing only 90mph, if that pitcher has four pitches...HGH isn't going to help a better know which pitch to look for.

There won’t be any Biogenesis discipline any time soon

There won’t be any Biogenesis discipline any time soon | Steroids in baseball | Scoop.it
I would still wager a decent amount on there being no Biogenesis-related discipline at all — it’s a he-said, she-said at the moment — but if discipline does come it won’t be at least for the next month and change.
