Dukie Named in Steroid Probe

I guess it was bound to happen at some point given the scope of the current steroid investigation, but I was still a little surprised to see ESPN reporting that Scott Schoeneweis received six steroid shipments while he was a member of the White Sox in 2003 and 2004.

Or maybe it's not THAT surprising. Even though Schoeneweis is generously listed at 6-feet, 190 pounds in his official MLB profile, I'd say that having seen him up close back in the day, he's actually smaller than all of the Committee members except for The Dude.

The sad thing is that as a survivor of testicular cancer, Schoeneweis would make for a sympathetic figure if he 'fessed up. Since he's taking the opposite approach, let's hope he's innocent as he claims.

Oh, and if he is taking performance-enhancing drugs of any type, they sure didn't help him during the stretch run of the Mets season...

Kind of sounds like Wade Wilson -- the truth for Wade was embarassing. Of course, he also is a coach and not a player, so his incentive was entirely personal. Not quite the same for Schoenweis.
