Mike Cameron Took Drugs!!!



  • Everly MLB player did until last year. Big deal.

  • He's one of the biggest names to date - ALMOST as big as Scott Schoenweiss.

  • Except Scoheneweis allegedly took steroids and/or HGH, while Cameron took stimulants, i.e. amphetamines. While I don't condone taking amphetamines, almost every MLB player did prior to the new drug rules.

    It's to your credit that you are unable to distinguish between the various drugs.

    Think of it this way - Stimulants are to steroids what pot is to cocaine.

  • That's not the point - of course I understand the difference - notice I titled the post Cameron Took Drugs as opposed to 'Roids.

    The fact is he is still a huge name linked to drugs - Much like martina Hingis and cocaine. On would imagine coke doesn;t help ypou perform better on the court, but it's still a big story.

  • Cocaine is a big story, amphetamines is not.

    Guess what: Gary Carer took amphetamines, per the recent book on the '86 Mets.

  • I'ts STILL a big story - for starters Carter took them 20 years ago and it's first coming out now. Cameron is STILL PLAYING - that's why it's a big deal. Not that he's taking it, but that he got caught and suspended.

  • The book's point was everyone on the '86 Mets took amphetamines, even Gary Carter who was Mr. Clean.

    Most players stopped taking stimulants when MLB banned them and tested for them, so Cameron was stupid, but it's otherwise not a big deal at all.
