Steroid Scandal Hits Hub

May 1, 2001 -- Red Sox vs. Oakland  pitching coach Joe Kerrigan talks to Paxton Crawford on the mound.

Globe: Crawford Said It Was Everywhere
Herald: Wakefield Reacts to Crawford's Clubhouse Culture Charges
Alex Speier: Steroid Scandal Lands at Fenway

"Though Crawford痴 former teammates said they were unaware of his use, they were unsurprised to hear that a Red Sox tried to gain an edge with illegal substances. Already, the franchise endured other incidents in which their players were tied to the use of performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs). Police found steroids in the car of former infielder Manny Alexander in 2000, and minor-league pitcher Felix Romero was suspended and subsequently released after failing a test for PEDs last year. Former Sox player Jeremy Giambi (brother of Jason) told the Kansas City Star last year that he used steroids throughout his career. Jose Canseco boasted of his steroid use throughout a career that included a stint in Boston in 1995-96." -- 6.21.06, Alex Speier, Union-Leader

Thank God He's a Country Boy

"Shoot, why not? I'm just a country boy; I didn't even think twice."
-- Paxton Crawford, to ESPN The Magazine

John Denver performing

Life on the Sox farm was kinda laid back
Ain稚 much an old country boy like me can't hack
But I was late to rise, a couple pitches that I lacked
Thank God I知 a country boy

Well a simple kinda life never did me no harm
I had a good family, but wastin on Boston's farm
They said the stuff I took wouldn't do me no harm
Thank God I知 a country boy

Well I got me a fine vial I got me a needle
HGH kickin in I知 back in the saddle
With juice in the veins this game isn't such a riddle
Thank God I知 a country boy

Paxton Crawford When the pitchin痴 done and I知 out with my bros
I'd pull out my needle keep juicin on the go
Jimy doesn't sleep gotta keep it kinda low
Thank God I知 a country boy

I壇 throw really hard all day if I could
But the lord and my stuff didn稚 make me very good
So I needle when I can, pitch when I could
Thank God I知 a country boy

Well I got me a fine vial I got me a needle
HGH kickin in I知 back in the saddle
With juice in the veins this game isn't such a riddle
Thank God I知 a country boy

Well I would致e traded my life for diamonds and jewels
Acting like one of them money hungry fools
I shoulda tossed that needle, grabbed my farmin tools
Thank God I知 a country boy

Yeah, superstars drivin in a black limousine
A lotta minor leaguers thinkin that痴 mighty keen
I told ESPN exactly what I mean
Thank God I知 a country boy

Well I got me a fine vial I got me a needle
HGH kickin in I知 back in the saddle
With juice in the veins this game isn't such a riddle
Thank God I知 a country boy

Well, the needle was my buddy till the day I retired
I fell on a glass and cut my back open wide
Shoulda lived a good life and played the game with pride
And thank God I知 a country boy

[Name blacked out] taught me young how to insert the needle
Taught me how to cheat and how to fool all the people
Taught me how to lie, give reporters just a little
Thank God I知 a country boy

Well I got me a fine vial I got me a needle
HGH kickin in I知 back in the saddle
With juice in the veins this game isn't such a riddle
Thank God I知 a country boy
Thank God I知 a country boy
