HGH and the Grimsley Affidavit

A lot of players seem to be concerned about what Grimsley knows.

“(Taking steroids) is something that’s wrong to do, obviously. But to go and start throwing other guys under the bus is definitely wrong as well,” says Nelson, a teammate of Grimsley on the Yankees in 1999 and 2000.

“Take the blame. You should take the hit and not have to be putting it on anybody else or (saying), ‘Hey I got caught with it. I think I’m going to bring some other guys down with me.’ That’s what’s wrong.”

Frustration or desperation… you make the call.

Albert Pujols’ name has even been brought into the mix. In a overly melodramatic style, Deadspin seems to think they have made a connection with a mutual physical trainer of Grimsley and Pujols if that means anything. Joseph Reaves of the Arizona Republic (via USA Today) corroborates this connection.

I’m not ready to even go there yet,

For more info on Human Growth Hormone (HGH), ESPN has a decent enough explanation. At this point, there is no good way to test for it though it is illegal.

Update: Commenter Dr. David Orman says:

Regarding your comments above, please note that HGH is NOT illegal. In fact, it is one of the major substances that has generated tremendous movement in the new aspect of medicine — Anti-Aging Medicine.

My apologies for the misuse of the word illegal.

    It is extremely frustrating when blogs like this or major news outlets like ESPN distort the truth about HGH. It is legal, it is safe and it is tremendously effective when used properly.

    HGH is not a steroid, nor does it in any way act like one, physiologically speaking.

    Please make the corrections.
