Swollen head blues
Nothing in the Mitchell report on steroid abuse in Major League Baseball comes as a surprise (well, except that Sammy Sosa wasn't included).
One has only to compare the pictures of today's baseball players to those of a few decades ago to know the sport is rife with anabolic steroids and growth hormone. I don't know many people whose heads keep getting larger during their 20s without it, and I don't think pitching curve balls causes Cro-Magnon jaw.
According to AP, there's an All-Star at every position on the list. If only the Fantasy Baseballers had known this when choosing their rosters!
Mommy, there are monsters in the outfield.
