New Baseball Season - Same Old Steroids, PEDs Tainting Grand Old Game? SF Giants Full PED Lineup ?




'Dodgers can't buy chemistry' was the big quote from the lips of San Francisco Giants'
starting first baseman,  Brandon Belt, earlier this year.
Funny thing is that the Giants DO have chemistry on their side,
but a lot of it comes in a bottle and syringe. Belt's confounding 8 spring homers is more
than his  ENTIRE 2012 season output! On top of that , he almost doubled his batting average,
 from .275 to .457!   Yes, we know it's spring training but still, that's
when the pitchers are often ahead of the hitters - and no other Giant hit more than four homers
(Pablo)... just another piece of wonderment on the Giants. One may not have concrete
evidence but there's sure got to be questions. And this, in light of Belt's muffled 'no'-comments about
the suspension and loss of Melky Cabrera last year...

As for the other Brandon, Crawford, he also raised his batting average  100 points this
spring training vs last season and doubled his slugging percentage with 10 extra base hits.
Note that he has also become mentored and good friends with Marco Scutaro, last seasons
most likely non-caught user of PEDs; Scutaro also raised his average 100 points just
after coming to the Giants from Colorado last season and likely has passed on some of 
his 'knowledge' to at least this Brandon, much like Melky passed it onto his fellow
venezuelan when Scutaro first joined the Giants, midseason 20120, prior to Cabrera's
suspension.' 

As for Scutaro, who's numbers are actually down in spring training, it may be due to
injuries, or , maybe he is saving himself for the season.

The fact of the matter is that , with this new knowledge about the Brandon brothers - who heretofore  we thought and hoped to be clean - virtually every Giant  starting player has probably used or is using PEDs (performance enhancing drugs). Perhaps the Brandons were under too much pressure to reach that potential that had long gone unfulfilled.   No heavy science here, just too many questions. And, combine this with some real science and numbers - 
see http://wheredidyougojoedimaggio1.blogspot.com  -  and read all the posts form last year and together you've got a mountain of evidence that points the Giants  further advancing a  the PED tradition that began over a decade ago with Barry Bonds where now likely every starter but probably Posey has likely used or is using PEDs. Only the names have changed, in our opinion..

So, now the starting lineup is secure of PED players, either former users or current...
with Buster Posey the only player  unlikely  using...
probably so squeaky clean he doesn't even know the others have been or are using - and now
his unheard of nine year contract...

PS Don't you love the way the Giants go out and try to nail down nearly every starting player
to long term contracts, especially with their track record  , going back
to Rennie Stennett and even Orlando Cepeda for Ray Sedeki... Aaron Rowand, Huff, Zito
(even though he's redeemed himself the past season after four bad ones @ $20K per, etc..
