  Except Steroid links, Gary Sheffield signed deal with Mets

Except Steroid links, Gary Sheffield signed deal with Mets  In a questionable manner, David Wright, the face of the Mets franchise, signed Gary Sheffield, the player who has past steroid links. The decision was made after giving appropriate time to the thought by Wright. Sheffield said about the Mets, “It’s been a lifelong thing for me. I wanted to fulfill my dream. I have a chance to win a championship here. If it comes to me coming off the bench, I’ll do that.”

It is reasonable from the player to join the franchise, but what is clicking in the mind is that why would the Mets want to enroll this player after knowing all the steroid gossips that have troubled him? Just because it was a no-lose move for Mets as they were only one who were paying Sheffield $400,000 and could cut him more easily than the infield grass.

But, one thing is sure if the reason is only this, the team could lose a great deal. Jerry Manuel spoke frankly before the game about how he isn’t worried about nursing along Daniel Murphy or Fernando Tatis. He said, “I’m not trying to develop or evolve. I’m trying to win a championship.”

Sheffield behaved in a proper way and knocked some bunch of runs then also the situtation remained the same as the real problem was in signing the player. Mets was once home to Kirk Radomski and signed Guillermo Mota to a two-year, back-loaded deal so that he would not suffer in monetary way due to 50-game drug suspension penalty.

Now the Mets have signed Sheffield, a player whose past links with performance-enhancing drugs are still a doubtful question. He himself had admitted the usage of a steroid cream in 2001 and was later named in the Mitchell Report as the steroid user. With all these mess ups, it would definitely not surprise anybody if Sheffield’s name was there in the list of positive tests from 2003 that could be leaked anytime.

Being a family-friendly franchise, the Mets have always tried to eliminate itself from any kind of potential embarrassment. But what appears to be questionable is that whether signing of Anna Benson’s Santa is more disgusting than the player, who himself has confirmed the acceptance of using a designer steroid, but without knowing what it was?

For the moment, however, the Mets could at least make the appearance that they are trying to implement the right ideology when it comes to battling the curse of steroids. By signing Sheffield, the team become the only one team that has signed the player after fully knowing his tainted past.

  HOW BOGDAN FOUND OUT ABOUT STEROIDS IN BASEBALL

baseball-steroidsJust this week, Andrew Michael Bogdan revealed the story behind how he found out about steroid use in the Major Leagues. Bogdan was the FBI informant that led the agents to Kirk Radomski. Although indirectly, he played an important role in the formation of the Mitchell Report. Bogdan helped the FBI in exchange for some leniency in his real estate fraud case.

Larry Bigbie used to be a talented player of the Baltimore Orioles and of the St. Louis Cardinals. He was one of the young stars with lots of talent that even Ray King was traded in for him. Unfortunately, Bigbie always got stuck in the bench because of one injury or another. Back in his Orioles days, there was a locker room “hang-outer” also known as Mike Bogdan. Bogdan was a cool guy so he easily befriended the athletes. What they didn’t know was that even at that time, Bogdan was already working for the FBI. He was charged for real estate fraud but instead of serving his time in jail, he volunteered to be an informant to track down steroid dealers. It was easy to do so especially when he manages to befriend Bigbie. Bigbie eventually admitted to Bogdan that he took anabolic steroids and HGH. Bogdan ratted him out to the feds and even took a used syringed from his trash to serve as proof. This soon led to Radomski who had supplied Bigbie with the performance enhancing drugs. And so, Bigbie was soon forgotten and the Mitchell Report was born.

bogdan-steroidsJust recently, the man that led the FBI to anabolic steroids dealer Kirk Radomski has been revealed. He is actually one of the targets of  other FBI investigations involving real estate fraud. Andrew Michael Bogdan was the FBI lead who, according to Jeff Novitzky, has been acquainted with several athletes within the Major Leagues. For some time, the FBI depended on Bogdan to lead them to Radomski and this eventually led to the conviction of the steroid dealer. Radomski’s arrest was important especially to the Mitchell Report which served as a basis of charges against baseball athletes who had allegedly used performance enhancing drugs.

Bogdan was charged with fraud in a real estate flipping scheme to which he pleaded guilty in 2001. He was then under probation for 5 years and was asked to pay a sum more than $277,000 for restitution.
