From the Associated Press:
” Jay Gibbons [was] suspended Thursday for the first 15 days of next season for violating baseball’s drug policy….
Gibbons accepted responsibility and apologized.’I am deeply sorry for the mistakes that I have made. I have no excuses and bare sole responsibility for my decisions,” the Baltimore outfielder said. “Years ago, I relied on the advice of a doctor, filled a prescription, charged the HGH, which is a medication, to my credit card and had only intended to help speed my recovery from my injuries and surgeries.’
Gibbons got six shipments of Genotropin (a brand name for synthetic human growth hormone), two shipments of testosterone and two shipments of human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) between October 2003 and July 2005, SI.com said in September.”
What do you think, O’s fans? Did he really take the supps, as he said, “just to speed his recovery?”
