Anybody but me see the reason he opted out of his contract when he did was to get paid before anyone broke this story. I think if this story would have broke under his old contract the Yankees would have had more options. Now he's the highest paid player in baseball, and he has a long contract. I think he pulled a fast one because he knew he failed the test.
The part that disturbs me the most is the Braves were the second highest bidder in that closed envelope bid, if the Rangers had not went sky high he would have been in a braves uniform when this happened. I guess Conseco isnt such a liar now, almost everyone he has named turned out to be juiced, he also named Pudge and no one has said anything else about his declining numbers since.
Another thing, I don't feel so bad about the yankees beating the crap out of us in the playoffs any of those years because a lot of the players that were killing us were juiced up. It's also amazing how so many of the players linked to steroids were juiced while playing with the yankees.
