    everyone thought canseco was full of crap when he wrote that book that said all the big hitters in baseball were doping. and then he turned out to be right. turns out there is another cassandra courtesy of balco:
    Victor Conte Says Ryan Braun's Test Result Is Exactly What You'd Expect From Fast-Acting Testosterone, Not Anabolic Steroids
    Victor Conte claims many athletes used performance-enhancing drugs in preparation for 2012 London Olympics - NY Daily News
    BALCO founder Victor Conte says Melky Cabrera's positive testosterone test not surprising, many more dopers are flying under radar - NY Daily News
    so here’s what we know: people are pointing to the drop in offensive numbers as proof that steroids are out of baseball. but in the old days of doping, nobody used synthetic testosterone because it wasn’t as effective as drugs like winstrol or dianabol. so the drop in numbers could be attributed to dopers switching to a less effective product. so if conte is right what we should expect to see is very few positive doping tests with the occasional athlete getting caught and the positive test being for synthetic testosterone. which is exactly what has happened. ryan braun and melky cabrera (two of the best hitters in the game) both tested positive for synthetic testosterone. but neither guy was huge like mcgwire, sosa, or bonds. heck, cabrera only has 10 homeruns this year despite his .900+ ops. so what’s going on is clear. all baseball needs to do is send all of its stored specimens for carbon isotope ratio tests regardless of the p/e ratio. the tests cost $400 a pop but you are going to catch a lot of the guys who are using these fast acting testosterone gels. but wait, there’s a problem! there aren’t any specimens. as part of the agreement between mlb and the players union in 2005 that “toughened” drug testing, mlb changed its policy from keeping all specimens indefinitely to disposing of all specimens after testing. that is an astonishing policy change and i am utterly shocked that they were able to implement such a change without anyone noticing. so what about the olympics? in the ’80s an east german team doped up on the strongest roids known to man set the world record in the women’s 4 by 100 meter relay. then that record stood without anyone even sniffing at it for 27 years as track and field cracked down on doping. and then out of nowhere the u.s women’s team shatters that record by an amazing .55 seconds at the london games. a story too good to be true. like marion jones. or rick ankiel. i’ve seen this movie before. occam’s razor. the simplest explanation is that conte is absolutely right.
