    #1 issue for the strike was drug testing.  Knowledge the public wasn't aware of for good reason.  I did work the Dr. Tony Galea case-one of the more recent cases regarding PED's.  I am familiar with all the testing of minor league players who were not under the same bargaining agreement (everyone we are discussing was in the minor league system).  Typically 20-25 of 25 roster players were found to contain either PED's or amphetamines.  You ask, has there been one drug result released on those players while tested in the minors?  The answer is no and never will be.

    I know I'm gonna get blasted on this one, but Piazza. Never tested positive, never showed up on any of the "lists". Dude was jacked coming out of high school.  Ted Williams once said Piazza had one of the best swings he'd ever seen.

    Frank Thomas and Ken Griffey never used steroids.  This is true

    True..

    Nobody talked about steroids until much later on. Nobody...

    Even during the McGwire/Sosa chase in the late 90's it was taboo and barely mentioned. Everyone jumped aboard.. right up until Bonds put up stupid numbers in '02, Caminiti died of it, and then it began to gain fast traction, into the hearings, and reports and so on.

    NOT true.  It was well known to be abused in current time in 1986-87.  Im sorry that you didnt know because the media hadnt informed you yet.  Being educated by the media is a disease....

    The hate is strong with this one.

    It's widely accepted that Biggio didn't come anywhere near steroids, but your hate blinders won't let you see that

    I 100% know for a fact that Biggio utilized steroids.  I am not in a position to take a guess here or speculate.

     nah every baseball writer and fan was cheering their team on like any other year.  It was only years later that those same writers had an issue with it happening

    The sports writers were in the clubhouse.  They traveled with the team.  They all knew what was going on and later claimed ignorance.  Bagwell took steroids 100%  ask him!  Wait....he has never allowed an interview with approved questions.  Plus he was the sports writers baby so they wouldnt ask him such a question

    Caminiti stars with a 'C', sir.  And the 94 strike had NOTHING to do with steroids, as evidenced by their continued use through the early Oughts.

    Comment by SaveFarris10/20/2017 5:27PM

    "The negative effects of the 1994 strike, though, lingered on in the
    suspicion and hostility the union harbored for the baseball owners, an attitude
    which did much to prevent the two sides from formulating an effective drug
    testing policy before one was finally forced on them by Congressional
    pressure. Not until 2003 did labor and management finally come together on a drug
    policy, and both sides – and the fans as well – continue to pay the price
    for that procrastination with every new steroid revelation."

     

    The casual baseball fan had no idea and that was for a GOOD reason.  Had everything to do with drug testing (NOT competitive balance) as reported to the public and baseball deadheads also called fans...

    Sports writers golden boy.  With that said, he not only took steroids, but he heavily abused them.  If you recall that strike dealt with substance abuse (steroids and amphetamines) and the players refused to come to an agreement on that aspect.  You have blinders on if you don't think the Killer B's weren't all juiced.  Go ask Bell!

    I censored hate it. These games already take long enough.   “ oh stop quick pitching, stop quick pitching “  shut the censored up and play the game. We don’t all have 6 hours a day to play. What the censored are you doing that you need me to pause 5 seconds before every pitch ?  Ball comes to the plate. You move the cursor. You press swing. That’s it. You don’t need an extra five censored seconds to take a practice swing or adjust your cup.

    You make zero sense in terms of time....let me guess, you throw balls outside of the strike zone; this extends the length of the game.  Unless you start throwing all strikes than you cant complain about length of game.
