Performance Enhancing Awesomeness

I mean today's players are just loaded up on drugs that help them perform better. Outrageous, completely skewers the stats put up by them. Nothing like in the good old days when...

“I probably smoked two joints, drank about three or four beers, got to the ballpark, took some [amphetamines], took a pain pill, drank a cup of coffee, chewed some tobacco, had a cigarette, and got up to the plate and hit,’’ Carbo said.

Wait what? Is that a recovering rock star? Nope it's Bernie Carbo, who pinch-hit the game-tying home run during the famous game six of the 1975 World Series (That actually allowed Carlton Fisk to win the thing in the 12th Inning for the Sox). Apparently he had a drug problem (but is bouncing back nicely).
