Power Outage

Could that bastion of truth and integrity Jose Canseco been on the money when he claimed that a huge percentage of MLB players were taking performance enhancing drugs? The recent power outages of some of baseball's better known players in their 30's makes me wonder. This was probably best spotlighted in the recent Boston/Detroit series where fearsome home run hitters David Ortiz and Magglio Ordonez looked like shells of the players they were just 2 years ago. Maybe it's not roids but age as some athletes just plain lose it at a certain age. given the allegations of age doctoring for foreign born players, maybe we're dealing with players much closer to 40 then 30 then their birth certificate would indicate. No matter the reason, it is kind of disturbing that we are now to the point that whenever someones power numbers drop the first word we think of is steroids.
