Apparently Rafael Palmeiro blames Miguel Tejada, former AL MVP, for doping him up and causing Raffy's positive steroid test early this year. Raffy told baseball's arbitration panel that a vitamin he received from teammate Miguel Tejada might have caused his positive test for steroid use. Apparently, Tejada gave Raffy some B-12...and Raffy said it was laced with steroids.
He better be right...or he's nailed his coffin shut.
Not only has Raffy lied to Congress...but now he's pointing fingers, feeding the witchhunt that he was against earlier this year. From what I've seen, Tejada is cleared from any wrongdoing...and the B-12 he has is proven to be that vitamin only....not anything laced.
Tejada is shocked and, understandably, pissed. There is nothing wrong with B-12 [I've taken it]. And, because of all this, Palmeiro has pretty much ended his career in Baltimore.
I'm sure there will be MUCH more fall out because of this.
Oh...and by the way....this is just PERFECT timing for such a news event. I mean, all 3 American League division races , plus the wildcard race, are as heated as they could possibly be. I'm sure the Commish Bud loves this.
