When pitcher Jason Grimsley admitted Wednesday to using illegal performance-enhancing drugs, and provided names of others who used them according to a federal investigator, it cast another huge shadow over the game and those who play it.
The Tigers reacted Thursday to the new developments. Some were glad it happened, others sounded like baseball has become the victim.
Todd Jones: “They’re not going to stop until they get what they want. The government is not going to quit. I just find it funny nobody else has skeletons in their closet except baseball players.
“I played with (Grimsley). Everybody makes choices, some better than others. He got a lot of pressure put on him because he’s not that kind of guy. He wouldn’t give up players’ names. There must have been a lot of heat on him.”
