Believe It Or Not (NOT!!)

This is from a NY Yankees fan web publication.....

"Kennedy: Member Of '04 Red Sox Used PEDs..."

"On the drive home tonight, from work, I caught the very last minutes of The Show on X-Radio (MLB Home Plate) with Rob Dibble and Kevin Kennedy.
At that time, Kevin Kennedy was addressing a caller who had some thoughts on the Mitchell Report.
I was pretty surprised at what Kennedy had to say there. In wanting to make a point about the Mitchell Report not being the all-inclusive bible of naming PED users, Kevin Kennedy said that a current colleague of his, who was with the Boston Red Sox in 2004, told him that he (the colleague) witnessed, for a fact, a member of the '04 Red Sox injecting himself in the buttocks with a needle full of PEDs. Kennedy said that the user is no longer a member of the Red Sox - but, he was a player on the team that won the ring in 2004. As per Kennedy, his colleague said that the "user" was giving a demo (to the "colleague") on how to do the injection.
It's pretty interesting that Kennedy would throw this out there, in the last few minutes of a radio broadcast. I wonder if anyone will pick up on it? Too bad George Mitchell missed this one."

Peter here, and this isn't worthy of ANY attention from Sen. Mitchell. In fact, Kennedy was bitter about his release from the Sox, way back when. But it's a "he said, he said, and then he said" type of story. In other words, complete bulls*it. Or maybe not, but I guarantee you this...that "person" is not with the Boston club now, if he ever existed in the first place. I just wanted to put it out there for you. You see, I TOLD you I'd be back! Be well. P.S. Click on the title of this post!

I love how once a Red Sox is implicated as a PED user THAT report is suddenly not news worthy?

If the link you provide is hearsay, then what is the Mitchell Report? considering half of it is unsubstantiated speculation coming from shady sources.

God forbid a Red Sox player is shown to be a PED user - and a member of the 04 championship team no less. If it were to come out that Keith Foulke - the closer of all closers that postseason - were a cheater that would place a big fat asterisk next to the title.

As long as your accusing Yankees and no one on the Sox, it's gravy. A former teammate brings the same charges against a Red Sox and it's "complete bull****." What a hypocrite.

And I am a Boston fan, but I am tired of my relatives' team [Yankees] being the only target of steroid use in the court of public opinion.

You have a great post was not complete in expressing my thoughts. I was commenting on the way the article was written and the "shrouding" of the identities of all involved. It just smelled so fishy to me. I doubted its truthfulness because it was a
"he said, he said, he said type of story. Sox players are human just like everyone else. I am not a hypocrite....sometimes my writing sucks. In this case, IT DID! Thank you for your honest and well expressed comments. And thanks for reading.

The Mitchell Report quotes Brian McNamee sa saying he personally injected steroids into Roger Clemens. That is not hearsay. That is direct witness testimony, admissible in any court of law in the country. "Hearsay" would have been if McNamee said someone whose name he forgot told him that he injected something into some pitcher. Do you think anyone would have taken McNamee seriously then? No, and that's why no one is taking Kennedy seriously NOW, you fool. He's saying an unnamed colleague saw an unnamed player deminstrate how to give an "unnamed" substance. Not admissible in any court, and not even worth the air time it got. Now, he puts a face to therse allegations and the "colleague" who makes them comes forward-then you've got a story.

Until then...crap. Nothing there, my angry friend...and likely ardent Clemens' apologist.

MCW, thanks...what I read was seemingly not based in fact...

It's strange but it seems that all these FOX Guys have all these stories:

Mc Carver & his Jon Lieber thing ad nauseum;

Now Kevin Kennedy & this episode;

Name Names, A--holes
