Jim Parque admits HGH use

with 2 comments

Jim Parque was a pitcher for the Chicago White Sox from 1998-2002. At the end of 2002, Parque tore his labrum, and feared his career to be in jeopardy. So with no other alternative in sight, Parque used HGH to recover, and pitch for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in 2003. Throughout his stay in Tampa, Parque said he used HGH six times.Steroids Parque Baseball

As a follow-up to yesterday’s post, this story shows a difference usage for performance enhancing drugs. Parque used HGH to recover from an injury, not that that makes his usage legal or right. Although, I understand it more than the simple cheaters of the game such as A-Rod, Manny Ramirez, and etc. The usage of performance enhancing drugs is wrong, and Parque should have just faced the harsh reality that his short major league career was over. I understand he was desperate, and trying to hold on to his career, but Parque still cheated.

Chicago White Sox manager, Ozzie Gullien, put it best saying, “There are three things you do it for, when you admit something. You’re going to make money out of that? I don’t think anybody would buy the [expletive] book. Sleep at night well or to be noticed? Or to be in the public eye? I think this kid did it to sleep well. He wants to show people out there that when you do the wrong thing, it’s still not working. I wish I could be his father. I’d be proud of him for coming out and saying that.”

Buehrle: Congratulations to Mark Buehrle on his perfect game yesterday.

Favre: Come back already, like I’ve predicted earlier.
