    So which current Reds were on those Dodger teams? That's the worst part of all this.

    I have said all along I think most players during that time at least "dabbled" in taking PED's. It was not against the rules and what better way to try to get an edge. I can't really blame them in some ways. I think sometime down the road we will find out that at least 80% of the players were taking PEDS and these claims made by players like Gagne, will be largely proven correct.

    Well I limited the 'definitely' guys to the guys who either admitted to it, were suspended for it, or were included in the Mitchell Report.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    I bet it is. In the NFL it is banned. Joe Haden from the Browns was suspended 4 games this year because of it.

    It WAS against the rules. These were/are controlled substances.

    Yes, it is a banned substance. You can get approval for it through MLB, but it can take YEARS. A minor leaguer who shall remain nameless was finally approved for it this year. He had been waiting for approval for two years.

    Well, true. Most were anyway. I was thinking of it from the standpoint of specifically banned through their CBA.

    If 80% Gagne's 2003 Dodgers were using PEDs, it certainly didn't help them from the offensive standpoint. IIRC, The pitching--both starters and pen--was lights out. The offense? They couldn't score in Tijuana with a limitless wallet.

    I don't know if 80% of players use it, but I would say that in the 90s or early 2000s it was at least 50 precent, just from my understanding/talks.
