WWZN had S.I. writer Tom

WWZN had S.I. writer Tom Verducci on this afternoon, who wrote the article “Totally Juiced” which appears in this weeks edition. He said many higher ups in baseball are glad this article is written, because it exposes things that the players union wants to keep buried. Reading the article is quite an eye-opener. Many believe that steroids are safe, even some who don’t take them. There are some who are opposed to them, but still take them because they think they *have* to just to keep up with those who do take them. His educated guess on the percentage of MLB players using is 40-50%.

WWZN is also going to have both Lou Merloni and Ben Affleck on after 5:00 to try to clear the air.

This is the ultimate dilemma. Of course fans want the Red Sox to win the World Series, but the dilemma is be careful what you wish for because you might get it. And if the Red Sox played the Cubs in the World Series, one of those two franchises will be permanently and forever altered. One of them will never be the same. So remember, while winning is the ultimate goal. If you’re a Sox fan or a Cubs fan, it carries a steep price tag. Life will never be the same.
