Extra Bases: Paxton Crawford Admits to Using
Steroids and HGH While with the Red Sox

" 'One time [in 2001], I walked right into the Red Sox clubhouse with a bunch of needles wrapped in a towel and left them on my chair. A few minutes later, one of my teammates came running over, saying, ‘Paxton, someone knocked your chair over and your freaking needles are all over the floor!’ Man, we just died about that. He said it was the funniest thing he'd ever seen, told me I was nuts. But that's the way it was back then.' ” -- Paxton Crawford in ESPN The Magazine
