Orioles roid rager — exclusive term! MUST CREDIT DEADSPIN! — Rafael Palmeiro was eligible to return last night but did not play. The Orioles are reportedly considering keeping him out of the lineup until after this weekend's series so he won't be booed by home fans.
But here's what we think: We think the "big name" steroid casuality is going to be announced this weekend, when the "Around the Horn" idiots won't be able to get at him, and Raffy will then be put in the lineup, because he won't be the big story anymore. That's a guess, of course. But it makes sense. Though we still think fans would embrace him if he'd just shave the mustache.
