Today ESPN broke the story that Rafael Palmiero tested postitive for steriods. An excerpt is below:

"In remarks prepared for a conference call Monday, Palmeiro said he had accepted his punishment and could not explain how the steroids got into his body.

'I have never intentionally used steroids. Never. Ever. Period,' he said. 'Ultimately, although I never intentionally put a banned substance into my body, the independent arbitrator ruled that I had to be suspended under the terms of the program.'"

Suffice it to say that Raffie was a Cub. There were ugly rumors that tied Raffie to Ryno's very, very messy divorce and Raffie's subsequently being traded. Then Ryno takes a poke at home run-hitting 'roid monsters. Maybe Raffie was on his mind as well.

By the way, Raffie could not explain how the steriods got into his body? Oh, for Pete's sake, that is lame. Sure, he could be looking at a perjury beef if he says he lied before Congress. Still, this is ridiculous.
