Ex-Red Sox Player Roger Clemens Listed Among Steroid Users.

NBC NEWS, WASHINGTON - Today's release of the sport players who use or have used steroids has been partly made public, and it includes Roger Cemens as one of the receivers.

Clemens is one of the former ball players for the Boston Red Sox, and has since left the division several years ago. More names will be revaeled later today.

yeah, it just too bad that these so-called gifted athletes have to turn to drugs to try to make themselves better strengthwise!

I've been listening to Mitchell and reading the names. Depressing but no longer surprising.

I'm also waiting to hear if some of the pro wrestlers have been added to the list.

I'm almost certain that Chris Benoit is among the many. He viciously murdered his wife and their 7-year-old son, and then he took his own life this past summer in June. He was thought to have taken steroids as well as anti-depressant medicines.

Being knocked in the head constantly had a psycologic tramatic affect on his brain, causing him to go nuts.

Booker T has also been said to have used the stuff.

Umm, I read The Mitchell Report and didn't see their names; Jason Giambi and Jason Grimsley were listed. Have a link for that?

No investigation required there, IMHO. Everyone would get busted. While some may find it entertaining, there is one agreed upon fact (aside from being fake/all for show), the human body does not look like that naturally. There has to be some extra help.

Look at Duane "The Rock" Johnson - while he is still in great shape, he doesn't look anything like the shape he was when he was in the ring.

But we digress from the original topic . . . . . .

It's a big list with some big names - Clemen's attempts into Cooperstown may just go the way of McGuires.

It's in my work email and can't get at it. Came from someone else. I'll check other sources.

Boston.com does not list Trot or Tek. SORRY but glad I'm wrong!
