I understand that Gary Matthews Jr. has been advised by his agent not to comment on the recent steroid raid to which his name was connected. Any kind of admission might put his contract in jeopardy (although even that seems doubtful). Like it or not, though, Matthews has already been found guilty in the court of public opinion. This paragraph from the L.A. Times says it all:
"Asked whether he had ever used performance-enhancing substances, accidentally or otherwise, Matthews said, ’I haven’t read the story myself and I don’t have all the information. Until I get more information, that’s my position.’"
I can’t think of a good reason why he would say that if the real answer to the question was simply, "no."
