Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"I know what steroids did for me. It made me superhuman. It made me an android, basically. Your body shuts down, and the stuff takes over. You had guys throwing harder than 95 mph when they had barely touched 90 mph their whole life. It wasn't just that but the strength, the confidence it did for you. The confidence, the feel, the results, is mentally addictive. It's habit-forming to say the least...We didn't have drug testing anyways. But it was still wrong." - Matt Herges ( "Breaking Down Hall of Fame ballot" by Tom Verducci, SI.com, 01/04/2011)
