2013-03-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Did you read Eric Knott's article? What are your thoughts? Do his anecdotal stories of the effects of steroids match anything you have heard, regarding velocity, ability, strain, wear and tear, etc.? Thanks.
(Matt from SD, CA)
I thoroughly enjoyed Eric's honest and insightful description of PED life in the minors. For anyone who missed it, check it out: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=19717

His descriptions are right on, especially the trade-off between performance and health risk. A player who is able to increase muscle and ramp up the energy within the system is naturally putting his joints at risk, and since most players do no focus on joint integrity in their workouts, elbows and shoulders can easily become the weak links in the chain for PED users. The increased kinetic toll is why harder throwers are naturally at an elevated risk for injury, and proper conditioning requires a balance between strength and flexibility throughout the body in order to ensure smooth function.
