He agreed but also said that he took more drugs than any 3 other players on the team at that time - and Pete Rose was on the team (wasn't him). I asked my buddy if he was taking and he said "Sure. Everybody does. You have to to survive at this level."
    Baseball players loaded up on speed before steroids.

    No, that's not what I'm saying. I'm either being too cryptic or I've got the wrong player.

    45 in 78? Not my record collection. I'll shut up now....

    "Workout ethic" is the key.

    Also, I think what Mike Golic has spoken of is using steroids while recovering from injuries. I think this is more common than regular usage, as players in most team sports (individual sports also?) see the two situations as different.

    Yeah, I don't buy that injury stuff. Football players are always injured, so they can always be taking. Its a convenient euphemism for "Sure, I was taking" I love Golic on Mike & Mike but don't but that.
