Reliever Mike Stanton recently intimated that curtailing amphetamines use this season will be more of a challenge than curtailing steroids. Some insiders have speculated that 70% to 80% of all baseball players use a pre-game stimulant of some kind. Now that Major League baseball is testing for amphetamine use, how many players do you think will get suspended for this infraction? Do you think it will be a bigger problem than steroids? Personally, I think middle relievers will be hardest hit. I wouldn’t be surprised to see at least 10 to 20 guys take a seat because of "Greenie" abuse. Let me know what you think in the "Comments" section.




    I have hit a lot of home runs and I have had my share of greenies. Is there a corelation? Ever wonder Roger Clemens threw that bat at Mike Piazza? That’s all I am going to say for now.

    I recently took a stance on Bonds that might lead you to believe that I am soft on steroids. I’m not. Amphetamine testing is a big step in the right direction for Major League Baseball. However, given that the players have the entire offseason to purge their systems of any amphetamines, I’d be suprised to see as many as 20 be suspended. The players are aware that the consequences are much harsher this year and will probably act accordingly. Still, expect some suspensions.
