  • WBC and Steroids-will we catch anyone?

    I read on the World Baseball Classic's (WBC) official site,

    http://mlb.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/mlb/wbc/index.jsp

    that,
    "All players on provisional and final rosters will be subject to Olympic-style drug testing in accordance with an Anti-Doping Agreement signed by MLB, the MLBPA and the IBAF."

    So, do you think we will catch anyone new?

    We've known it was going to be Olympic-style testing since they said they were having it

    No, who is going to be dumb enough to stay on steroids (if they are on them) for an exhibition that you know will have Olympic-style testing and you know when your going to be tested

    They'd have to be pretty dumb to get caught during the WBC

        it is not just when the substances are taken, astro, but for what length of time they remain in the system.
        many substances can be detected by testing 12 to 14 months after entering the human body.

          Most stay in the system for a month at the most I do believe

          Name me some that stay in the body for a year or longer

              95% of steroids dont stay in your system for over a year

              Most stay from 6 months and down

                I also doubt anyone would agree to play in something optional if they were risking getting caught with 'roids

                  I agree but I have a feeling someone is going to get caught. Isn't that ironic Alanis?

                    Deca and most oil based steroids are detectable for over a year.

                      astro, you asked for a couple and i gave specifics to you.
                      hidden gem's info is correct. do you want the names of specific oil-based compounds?

                      maybe steroids102.com is a necessary follow-up.

                        Wasnt sure, so asked people to name them

                        My main thing was: ITS VOLUNTARY TO PLAY! No one smart is going to play if there is even a remote chance of getting caught, doesnt matter how long the steroids stay in the system, you dont play you dont get caught

                            This is true, if someone does get caught they should be banned for a year from baseball... just for being stupid enough to get caught

                            Here is a scenario: What if a few players from another country, such as Japan, who do not play in the MLB get caught... this would make Japan look horrible, that they have to take steroids to be close to MLB level, and still arent there

                              Is Palmeiro playing?

                              I hope that's all.
