The Great Grimsley Matter

This could get really, really big. Jason Grimsley, a 15-year vet and the epitome of the journeyman reliever, was recently busted for possession of Human Growth Hormone (HGH). Baseball does not test for HGH, and Grimsley states -after a career of taking steroids- that he has only taken HGH since the MLB testing policy began. What makes this different from the Bonds and Giambi cases that stemmed from the BALCO mess, is that Grimsley sang like a bird, naming several different players.

It’s real easy, and more than a little scary, to do a Six Degrees of Separation with Grimsley and 15-year, eight-team career.

The Smoking Gun has the affidavit, but the whatever names that Grimsley gave are blacked out.

Again, this could be big.
