Get Ready: Another 'Roid Name Is Coming


Orioles roid head — that's a new name we're trying out; great, ain't it? — Rafael Palmeiro is scheduled to return to the Orioles tomorrow after serving his 10-day suspension for steroids. But many observers aren't sure he'll come back at all; Congress is still investigating him, some of the Orioles brass are considering cutting him outright and, according to Will Carroll at Baseball Prospectus, there are rumors that Palmeiro might be considering giving up some more names of active steroid users.

Also in Carroll's column: The rumor that another big-name player is about to be nailed for steroids. Let us know your most likely suspect. We're still going with Cardinals shortstop David Eckstein. Don't sue us, Dave!
