I was just wondering how many current players were possibly juicing in the past but quit when Canseco's book came out and all the intense testing started.I have a couple in mind and this is just performance based and i believe Andruw Jones and Alfonso Soriano might have been because they were both hammering 40 HRS a year and all at once they both lost most of thier power and now Andruw is only a platoon player and i watched his whole career as a Braves fan and at one time i rated him as the best centerfielder in baseball.Does anybody else have any players in mind?

Often wondered about Brian Roberts of the O's in 2005. He went from 4 to 18 HRs in 80 fewer ABs. Slugging percentage from .370 to .515. Not a big guy, but it was a crazy improvement...

Brian Giles. Haha. Know him personally. A very, very disturbed individual. LOL. No doubt NO LIMIT. No doubt. Marcus too......

I am my own source. It's not a run when you do it over and over again with consistency and a mentality that you've done it before.

In nearly "5" years at pregame, if you COMBINED every SPORT SEASON together, i have turned a strong profit in EVERY SINGLE SPORT EXCEPT BASEBALL. Of all the things i've done here at pregame, this is EASILY what i'm most proud of. That's LONG TERM WINNING.

I had forgot about Marcus and yes he hammered it pretty good for a couple years with the Braves but all of a sudden he lost it all!!!!

Brian Roberts admitted he used steroids. He was also in the Mitchell Report (even though that was an absolute crock). Also Andruw Jones is 35 and Soriano is 36. People do get old and that could be a reason for why their numbers have dropped off as well

ljyankee i would tend to agree with that but both of thier numbers dropped off 7-8 years ago.I cannot vouch for Soriano but i have been an avid Braves fan since the early 80's and i watched Andruw come out of the minors and catch the world on fire and for 6-7 years he was on top of his game hitting 35-40 homeruns and driving in 90-110 runs a game.Then the Mitchell report came out and Canseco's book came out and he was still with the Braves but his production dropped back to 15-25 HR'S and 80 RBI's and this continued for 3 consecutive years and the Braves cut him loose.In my opionion you don't go from what he was to what he currently is overnight and either he has a lousy training regimin or he was juicing!!!!

I don't disagree I was just trying to keep an open mind, and I wouldn't be shocked if its found they both were juicing either
