    Pete just said he thinks Tracy Jones juiced

    Did anyone else just hear that? Pete is on Colin Cowherd's radio show on ESPN. Was asked if he had suspicions of anyone using 'roids when he was managing the Reds. He said "Yes, Tracy Jones." Also mentioned he thought Jones was the only one. (And couched it by saying he's not positive that Jones used, just that he suspected it.)

    Well judging by the results of his career, Jones didn't juice enough.

    Jones needs a refund if he did. It didn't work too well.

    OK, so I've got to wonder, is Pete on the up & up about this, or is he playing along in another 700wlw stunt and used Colin as a spark? I guess we'll know this afternoon based upon how this is played up on 700. If it talked about all afternoon, stunt (though perhaps based upon truth?), if its ignored, then its probably true.

    B/c for a national show, if Pete says somebody juiced and the person is Tracy Jones, 95% of america says "who?"

    No stunt. We were told not to play the clip.

    Tracy's incredible strength and workouts were chronicled in a few spring training stories in '87-'88. I remember the stories talking about him benching 450lbs and going on to detail his workouts which seemed extreme. I was an impressionable young man back then and was fascinated with Jones, Daniels, Larkin, McClendon and few others. I kept thinking if I could someday bench 450 I could be a big leaguer too. Crazy the stuff you remember.
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    I remember something about that, too. What I heard was that Tracy was the only player on the team who could compare with Dave Parker in terms of strength.

    "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."
