1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I guess you could say this is pretty shocking, but you don't have to look much farther than Albert Pujols to suspect that MLB may not be steroid-free.

    Your thoughts?

    The NL MVP.

    Hate to say it, but you can't give any of them the benefit of the doubt any more.

    i am less concerned about pujols and PEDs than the fact that he is probably 35-37 years old

    He claims he did not intentionally violate the rule. I guess someone said "its flaxseed oil and vitamins."

    I've always believed (rightfully) that PED use was rampant in MLB but I wouldn't be surprised if Pujols was cleaned. He has always been physically massive and even as a rookie he was huge (probably because he was 5 years older than he claimed). Barry Bonds in 2001 looked like he had eaten two Barry Bonds from 1986 and Pujols just doesn't look like that. Also, for someone as well known as him, he largely hasn't shown up in the discussion surrounding steroid use and his name wasn't on the 2003 leaked list of PED users.

    All speculation, but as I said I wouldn't be surprised if he is clean.

    There are more PEDs than just steroids, there is a long history of stimulants as well and recent tests bear that out.

    Yoiu would believe with all the scrutiny in testing these days that you would not just start grabbing supplements of the shelf with inquiring about them.
