Another big shocker in the underbelly of baseball, as former Boston Red Sox reliever Brendan Donnelly has denied allegations from the (tiring) Mitchell Report that he used performance-enhancing drugs.
The now infamous report stated that former Mets clubhouse attendant Kirk Radomski claimed Donnelly phoned him in 2004 looking for an anabolic steroid called Anavar. Radomski then sold Deca-Durabolin to Donnelly for $250 - $300.
Donnelly admitted to calling Radomski to talk about Anavar that season, when he was injured.
"Upon learning that Anavar was classified as a steroid, I realized that was not an option. That was the end of it," Donnelly said.He went on to say that he was "sick to his stomach" when thre report was released and hasn't slept since then. He also fully supports the MLB testing program and would like to see wider testing adapted.
Same story, different teller.
Donnelly, who became a free agent Wednesday night just before the Report was made public, is recovering from tendon replacement surgery and is expected to miss most of next season.
