    I’m loving all these Biogenesis articles. Free advertising! As luck would have it, “Biogenesis” is the name of the screenplay I’ve written.

    Alas, it has nothing to do with baseball. Or steroids. Or humans. Wait, do half-human, half-alien hybrids who live in a magical forest and sing lyrics to Limp Bizkit songs while facing the destruction of said forest by an evil hedgehog I envision being voiced by Steve Buscemi count as being about humans?

    And it’s a good thing I like all this free advertising, otherwise I would already be sick to death of these Biogenesis articles flooding the site!

    To hell with PEDs in baseball. Was Kay doing that interview in her jammies? I don’t know why, but a good looking lady in a plaid shirt always looks like she’s wearing her flannel jammies to me. Stick a cup of steaming coco in her hand, and I just wanna smooch her on the forehead and tell her how cute she is. I remember when Tiffany once did a series of Craig Interviews in her plaid jammies. Same effect.

    Nice jammies, Kay. Have you got your bunny slippers on, too? If so, you win the internet for today.

      “.. but a good looking lady in a plaid shirt ..”

      So I was right, you Beavermen prefer them in plaid.

        Most gentlemen do.

      My take was that she had a Rob Neyer makeover, thinking that it would appeal to her intended audience.

      • cur68 - Jun 5, 2013 at 3:44 PM

        You think she knows I’m watching? Perhaps she’s speaking to me? Oh boy, wouldn’t THAT be great!

      Wow, I can’t wait to see what eye candy us ladies get then!

        That would be Craig. He polished his head and everything.

      Who cares?

    One of the things that strikes my about this “scandal” is the Anthony Bosch aspect of it. This guy is described as very kind of sleazebag imaginable. No one has ANYTHING good to say about him, if fact it’s about the only thing that all interested parties agree on. If he’s s bad as is being suggested how the hell does MLB use him as the foundation to their “investigation”? George Steinbrenner used a sleazebag named Howie Spira to get dirt on Dave Winfield and got suspended for it. Now, MLB is now using their own sleazebag to get dirt on players so that the players can get suspended. How wonderfully consistent!!

    Initially, he stated that he didn’t provide PEDs to players and now supposedly he’s about to say he did. So, it begs the question; is he a no good lying dirt bag now or was he a lying no good dirt bag then? The Feds had Sammy “The Bull” Gravano” to get Gotti. The Bush administration had “Curve Ball” to get them their regime change in Iraq. Now MLB has Anthony Bosch to bring to “justice” players that have thus far alluded them. Aside from all of these “informants” being ass covering, lying sleazebags looking to throw somebody under the bus for their own benefit they all have one thing in common, .. we can’t tell whether they where lying starts and stops.

    I sure hope MLB has more than just Anthony Bosch’s word on this stuff because his word is worthless.

      Two words: Jose Canseco.

      • bigharold - Jun 5, 2013 at 5:54 PM

        Canseco is a complete imbecile but his story has pretty much been consistent. Bosch will have a real hard time because he stated that he did give players PEDS now he’s changed his story, apparently since it’s all unconfirmed reports. If so, I would like to some corroboration or evidence.

        If a player, no matter how much he’s hated, .. as like A-Rod for various reasons, is going to forfeit salary and be suspended there has to be more than unsubstantiated accusations from somebody so poorly regarded in the first place.

    Without watching, let me guess, Craig takes some sort of “who cares about PEDs in baseball” stance. Let’s see…

    • braddavery - Jun 5, 2013 at 4:06 PM

      Video is not working for me. Guess I can’t watch to see if I am right.
