Ryan Franklin tests positive


Recommended Posts

Amazing how right Congress now looks calling this an epidemic and how stupid baseball looks calling it a minor problem. And the biggest problem is that most people only thought that guys who LOOKED big and bulked up were the ones who were juiced. But Franklin and Sanchez among others make it look like anyone could be linked to steroids. This is very bad news for the sport, and I won't be suprised if we see Henry Waxman open another congressional hearing on the matter to confront Palmiero and the Commisioner in light of recent events.

"There's got to be a flaw in the system," he said Tuesday before the Mariners played the Tigers at Comerica Park. "I have no clue. I tested in [early] May and again three weeks later. The first was positive, the second was negative."


"I'm one of the guys who was supportive of strong testing," Franklin said. "I believe I got to the big leagues on God-given talent, and that's how I've stayed here. It's hard to swallow."


"I know deep in my heart that I have never done anything like that."


"I'll never take [supplements] again. ... I won't even take a vitamin until I'm done with baseball," he said. "I hate what's happened for the organization, for me, and my family. I'm done with taking anything."
