Manny suspension: Read my ‘97 “Byrd Flies With Sports’ Newest Scam, ‘Hormone Replacement Therapy,’” http://snipr.com/hk868 [muchnick_net]
Chris Benoit got a “therapeutic use exemption” for testosterone injections because years of steroid abuse shut down his own production.
More from my ‘97 piece: “adult-onset hormone deficiency … about as rare in non-steroid users as [now common] torn triceps and pectorals.”
Peter Gammons of ESPN is lame on the Manny story — just as Gammons was in his interview of A-Rod. “Insiders” won’t do the grillwork.
