MLB Baseball Headlines: Mark McGwire Steroids Update

McGwire’s Steroid Claims Disputed (Again)

Many people doubted Mark McGwire when he claimed that the only purpose he had for taking steroids during his record-breaking 1999 season was to be able to quickly recover from injuries. And now another disputer has emerged – his alleged former supplier of performance enhancers.


Former trainer Curtis Wenzlaff, who has been convicted of dealing steroids, has claimed that McGwire used steroids to get “bigger, faster, stronger”. He goes on to say that there are many natural treatments for recovering from injuries, and McGwire is being disingenuous when he claims that he only took steroids to recover.

He also claims that the drugs he gave McGwire would have given him better hand-eye coordination and would no doubt help him become a better home-run hitter.

“Let me put it to you this way. If Paris Hilton was to take that array (of drugs McGwire did), she could run over Dick Butkus,” is what Wenzlaff told ESPN on Thursday.

This comes after substantial scepticism over McGwire’s long-delayed admission of steroid use earlier this month. McGwire had claimed that he believed he would have been able to hit just as many homeruns had he never taken steroids.

Former teammate Jose Canseco had already said that McGwire had been disingenuous and many people had seen the admission as a mere attempt to muster up consideration to be put in the Hall of Fame.

What credibility the new Cardinal hitting coach will wind up with after the dust clears remains to be seen.

  1. By saying that he only used steroids sparingly just to come back from injuries over the course of several years is like your wife or girlfriend telling you that she is only slightly pregnant. If you are going to finally fess up, do not insult everyone’s intelligence with even more half truths.
