Smart move, this. Make the big mea culpa right away and hopefully there will be enough time before the start of the season, that all the smoke will clear.

On a side note. As someone who has experienced with steroids years ago, this argument that HGH was being used to recover from an injury is a bit crap.

I started hearing about HGH in 1998-99 in the gyms as an alternative to steroids. It was generally believed to be used by senior citizens suffering from loss of bone mass, but for gym rats it was the new wunderdrug.However, the lowdown was that it was considered unkosher for a guy in his 20s to be using it.

So I am a bit skeptical when these guys say "I had no idea"

If you've gotta make an argument for a guy to get in, he doesn't belong. Biggio's a hell of a player. I've always been at least a casual fan of his. He's consistently good, a marginal all star year in and year out.
