A Florida couple busted for running a major steroid operation and selling to pro athletes named the Nats and the Caps as two teams that availed themselves of their services, but they didn’t name names.
That leaves anyone the Washington Times has so far got on the horn to speculate. Officially, of course, there’s no comment other than, “We’ll get to the bottom of this.”
But Caps enforcer Donald Brashear has weighed in: “We get tested two, three times a year and there’s never been anybody who’s tested positive….Was [Thomas] supplying this year? Was it a few years ago when there was no testing…to tell you the truth, if there was, I didn’t know. There’s no sign of anybody I know who used steroids.”
Former Cap and current Panther Steve Eminger is similarly incredulous his former teammates doped up. “No, never, not once—-[steroids were] never talked about once…I don’t know, you see guys. Guys aren’t extremely ripped or anything.”
So who’s got the Florida hookup then?
