Wilstein and steroids

Steve Wilstein, the AP reporter who found the bottle of andro in Mark McGwire's locker and subsequently ended up writing "hundreds" of steroid stories as they became an integral part of the sports scene, discusses his retirement at 57 with Joe Strupp of E&P. Wilstein says one reason for his retirement was his father's ongoing fight with cancer, but he says the fact that he simply tired of writing about the abuse of performance enhancing drugs was a major factor, too.

Most ballplayers today are taking homeopathic hgh oral spray because it's safe, undetectable, and legal for over the counter sales. As time goes on it seems it might be considered as benign a performance enhancer as coffee, aspirin, red bull, chewing tobacco, and bubble gum.
