    Nothing else has gotten attention, maybe srious jail time will. He has certainly gotten more chances then the average citizen would have.

        Jail time or no, he won't change. He's a committed druggie.

          I totally agree. He had the potential to be one of the best pitchers ever. That potential alone saved him several times. Hopefully, this will serve as a wake up call for him.

              Like many spoiled athletes, he knew people would rescue and help him. Real jail time in a real prison, might get his attention, if not maybe people will finally realize he deosn't want to be saved.

                My goodness...they're saying 5 years jailtime for the Doc. His credibility has crashed, and not to mention he was banned for one season while on the 60-day suspension for cocaine in 1995. Drugs do a bad thing to the brain, and not to mention his World Series partner, Darryl Strawberry, hasn't been any better. (even though I liked both, even though I wasn't born for the Mets' last WS win, but thanks to my father, it feels like I was there)

                  tp, it's a sad commentary but I have to agree with you...How much saving do you offer somebody?? Perhaps, hard time is what he needed all the time..

                    Solair, we could get into a philosophical discuss about drugs but this is not the place...Sometimes, life works out strange...It's a sad commentary when so
                    much talent is "wasted". Unfortunately, neither Doc nor Straw are the first nor will they be, unfortunately, the last....

                    Meanwhile...Let the season begin!!!

                    Let's Go Mets!! WS '06
