Numbers on Steroids is a look at baseball players during the 90s to see if anything screams out at you.
Vitamin B12 hit a home run in the WBC this weekend off the Pontoon so let's take a look at his stats and see when he started enjoying the B12.
Explaining It Away
Looking at Tejada's stats I don't think much jumps out at you. He ramped up at the start of his career and started to hit his prime at the age of 26. He held on to those peak numbers for 7 seasons plus a little bonus pop from moving from Oakland to Baltimore. He then started the true decline in 2007 and 2008 when he was 33 in Dominican Years, or 47 in American years. There aren't any questionable spikes, just a ramp up a steady peak and a ramp down. That's how you picture most careers to work.
Miggy was both thrown under the bus by Mr. Palmeiro and taken to task by both Congress and the Mitchell Report. He obviously took something whether that be steroids or HGH. He likely took it in 2000 when he played with Giambi and the likes in the Bay Area and he obviously continued it with the Oreos.
Yummy, B12 Is So Delicious
