ALWAYS THOUGHT CHRIS SPEIER WAS JUICING:
Tampa Bay's Sanchez suspended for violating baseball's steroids policy (Fred Goodall, 4/03/05, The Associated Press)
Tampa Bay outfielder Alex Sanchez was suspended 10 days for violating baseball's new steroids policy, the first player publicly identified under the major leagues' tougher rules. [...]
Sanchez said he was surprised by the suspension, adding that he uses milkshakes and multivitamins to build his energy — and blaming the positive test on something he bought over the counter.
"I'm going to fight it, because I've never taken steroids or anything like that," said Sanchez, who was released by Detroit in mid-March and signed by the Devil Rays.
You have to love that the first player suspended has 4 HRs in 365 career games. Posted by Orrin Judd at April 3, 2005 6:33 PM
