I’ll give Andy Pettitte F.P. Santangelo this much credit : his admission of PED use following the release of the Mitchell Report has made it a bit easier for other players to come out the closet (after they’ve been outed, natch), and along with Brian Roberts, you can add ESPN’s Fernando Vina to the new list of those confessing to something-or-other.

You’ll note that Vina insists he wasn’t trying to “gain an edge”, much as Pettitte claimed his two-off HGH experiment was only motivated by wanting to help his team. So there’s your new spin going forward ; HGH users loathe to acknowledge the drug gave them a competitive advantage over other players recovering from injuries would instead have us believe that they’re merely guilty of being AWESOME TEAMMATES.
