Gabe Kapler on PEDs and PED suspicions

Harry How

Former Ranger outfielder Gabe Kapler writes at BP about performance-enhancing drugs and the shadow they cast over players

Former Ranger outfielder Gabe Kapler has written a lengthy and interesting piece for Baseball Prospectus about PEDs, the temptation to use them, the difficulty of being suspected of using when you are clean, and the aging curve for hitters.

Kapler, of course, was one of those players that people just offhandedly suggested (or assumed) was a steroid user because he was big and muscular.

A summary can't really do the piece justice, so I'd suggest you click on the link and read the whole thing.
