Some people are just naturally good at cheating. That is, they're born with a gene that allows them to take steroids, but pass traditional tests—without any of the designer masking agents that many athletes have turned to.

Mike Piazza's Book Tour Produced An Excellent Illustration Of The…

Perhaps because of his eccentric streak, many apparently hoped that the book would be a tell-all about the steroid era, like Jose Canseco's Juiced from someone who isn't (as much of a) national… » 2/16/13 11:55am 2/16/13 11:55am
