The former New York Mets club house attendant, Kirk Radomski is name dropping again. He plead guilty to steroid dealing and money laundering in 2007, but avoided jail time by snitching and cooperating with George Mitchell.
Now Radomski’s goal is to make money. How will he make money? Of course, he’s writing a book, a tell-all to be exact. The book is expected to out players that were linked steroids and drug use during his time around the league.
In an attempt to garner more attention, Radomski has added former major leaguers Dwight Gooden and David Justice to the list of former steroid abusers. Justice and Gooden both adamantly deny ever taking steroids. Furthermore, David Justice denies even knowing Radomski.
For instance, Dwight Gooden admitted to using cocaine, yes cocaine. He failed many drug tests in his career, which culminated with Gooden being suspended for the entire 1995 season. Radomski claimed he took urine tests for Gooden in the late 1980′s to hide this drug use, but I’m not buying it. Gooden admitted cocaine use, why would he lie about the urine tests? Doesn’t make any sense.
And the bogus story of taking David Justice to the airport is hilarious. He claims that on the ride he sold Justice 4 or 5 boxes of HGH and steroids before Justice got on the plane; I repeat get on a plane with 4 or 5 boxes of steroids. I guess Radomski believes we’re all idiots, next he’ll claim he sold steroids to the Pope, who knows.
I hate the term, but this guy is a loser. Going forward, Bud Selig needs to make certain that all MLB trainers, workers, attendants, etc. are not steroid users or dealers, lets not tempt the guys in the clubhouse. History has shown that their not strong enough to resist a steroid filled needle. By the way, has anyone seen Radomski? He’s surely used a few needles in his day, probably still does.
