And I thought "you know what, I'm going to write a post about how much Schoeneweis has grown on me, and how I hope he comes back, and that he's not run out of town, and that I'm sorry that I ever compared him to a pug".
Then this happens:
Scott Schoeneweis, the veteran New York Mets reliever and a survivor of testiticular cancer, received six steroid shipments from Signature Pharmacy while playing for the Chicago White Sox in 2003 and 2004, ESPN has learned.Should I blame a guy for something he did before there was a policy on it? Heck, I'm not even sure guys like Rick Ankiel and Troy Glaus are lousy cheats for doing it (allegedly) before the policy was put in place (like Rafael Palmeiro is).
According to a source in Florida close to the ongoing investigation of Signature, Schoeneweis' name appears on packages that were sent to Comiskey Park while the White Sox were battling to win the AL Central title in 2003. Two more shipments arrived at the stadium in 2004, months before Schoeneweis underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left elbow.
But damn, the last thing I needed was more bad news regarding this franchise, which acquires another tatter each day. I mean, what's next? An internet report that Oliver Perez has children locked in his house producing sneakers for 30 cents an hour?
My lord, just let me forget about this franchise for, I don't know, a day and a half?
Say it ain't so, Scho...say it ain't so.
