    NY Times Article: Greenies

    Saw this article on Bronx Banter, thought it was pretty interesting:

    It's a trip... ADD that is, it's basically something you have to have to really understand.

    Treatment of it is a crapshoot, need for treatment for it is as well.

    Omar Vizquel, the Giants' shortstop, was adamant about his disdain for something others around him have apparently used.

    "I don't believe a simple drug or a simple pill can get you through 162 games," Vizquel said. "I never believe in stuff like that."
    Omar, no cheating? Omar you definitely used roids in cleveland. I have sources. No greenies but by all means shoot up.

    Excellent read. I hope Dunn can still play his 160 games. He's just country tough. thats all there is to it.
