So Olney says today that he believes (with no proof) that btw 75-80% of all major awards won in baseball since 1988 have been won with the help on performance enhancing substances.

Olney might have shown his slip here, since there have been multiple awards won by some players.

Clemens
Unit
Maddux (???)
Bonds

I don't have time to come up with any calculations, but I am sure that some RZ slacker does.:) But what percentage of "major awards" (MVP and Cy Young is my guess) would Clemens make up? Pretty baffling and I think he may regret this statement.

Look at it this way: 1988 to 2006 is 18 years. 2 awards in each league would equal 72 major awards. If Clemens' 5 (?) Cy Youngs make up roughly 7%, it would be tough to say that only another 13% of the rest of the awards were PED free.

Are you suggesting its completely out of the realm of possibility to think Clemens was on steroids?

I think its at least plausible.

Indeed.

I think it is a lock. But I think it is much more dangerous for a reporter to say what he believes than for any of us. And I think he said more than he meant to, since it might be able to be mathematically "proven" that he thinks Roger is an abuser.

when they wouldn't approve testing a few years back, I assumed that more than half of the players are juicy

When I saw the thread title I thought, "Why in the heck would Olney be taking steroids?"

Does he have any proof whatsoever, or is he just making wild accusations in order to make more of a name for himself?
