Just hours after Rick Ankiel powered the Cardinals to another win with two home runs and 7 RBI against the Pirates, the New York Daily News revealed that Ankiel received a shipment of human growth hormone in 2004.
According to records obtained by The News and sources close to the controversy surrounding anti-aging clinics that dispense illegal prescription drugs, Ankiel received eight shipments of HGH from Signature Pharmacy in Orlando from January to December 2004, including the brand-name injectable drugs Saizen and Genotropin.
This may be the last straw that forever taints baseball with zzzzzzzzzzzzz.
Wha? Oh. Anyway. Deadspin's got a nice, heartfelt piece on this, if that's what you need to set your mind at peace in the wake of this earth-shattering revelation. You know what would set my mind at peace? A license to kill. You want some change, do ya? *BLAM!*
