Exclamation Federal Agents Raid Diamondbacks Jason Grimsley's Home

Quote:
Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Jason Grimsley told federal investigators he used illegal performance-enhancing drugs, according to court documents unsealed late Tuesday.

Thirteen agents searched Grimsley's house in Scottsdale, Ariz., for six hours Tuesday, according to Internal Revenue Service Agent Mark Lessler, who would not say what they found.


In seeking a judge's permission for the search, investigators who cracked the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative steroid scandal said Grimsley initially cooperated in the probe. He withdrew his assistance in April, but not before he allegedly made "extensive statements" about illegal drug use, "for the purpose of performance enhancement," according to the court documents.


IRS Agent Jeff Novitsky told the federal judge that investigators wanted to search the right-hander's house for "any and all records showing contact or relationship with any and all amateur or professional athletes, athletic coaches or athletic trainers" regarding illicit drug use and purchases."


According to Novitsky, Grimsley told him the names of other players he believed were using, but the names of those players were blacked out of the court records.


"I have no comment about that and no idea about that," Grimsley told The Arizona Republic on Tuesday, hours before the Diamondbacks played the Philadelphia Phillies.


Diamondbacks general manager Josh Byrnes said the team had no immediate comment.

According to court documents, Grimsley failed a league drug test in 2003. Authorities said when he was cooperating, he admitted to using human growth hormone, amphetamines and steroids.


He added that amphetamine use was prevalent in pro baseball, and that it was placed in coffee in clubhouses -- marked "leaded" or "unleaded" to indicate which pots contained the drugs -- Novitsky wrote.


The Republic reported that Latino players were cited by Grimsley in the court documents as a major source of amphetamines, as were major leaguers on California teams who could easily travel to Mexico to buy the drugs.


The newspaper reported that the affidavit, which was filed in U.S. District Court in Phoenix, said that Grimsley took delivery of two kits containing human growth hormone at his home on April 19.

remember when baseball writers said that steroids wouldn't help pitchers so they shouldn't test them? I think it was Rob Dibble

I heard he named some 2 "shocking" names to be involved in it too. And one "surprising" according to someone who saw the names.

Strap In For The Grimsley Express

Quote:
So we’ve been digging through this <a href="http://www.thesmokinggun.com/archive/0607061grimsley1.html">Jason Grimsley affidavit</a>,
and there’s some pretty fun stuff. We understand the mindset behind
what one commenter called “the missing white girl story of the week”
aspect of this, but we kind of have a feeling this might stick. Some
highlights:</p>

<p>• Grimsley says he has used the various steroids “throughout his career,” which spans 15 years.<br>
• Since drug testing began in baseball, Grimsley has only used HGH, which is not tested for by MLB.<br>
• Grimsley was also an “habitual” amphetamine user and said, “they
work.” Until last year, clubhouses had coffee pots labeled “leaded” for
those that had greenies, and “unleaded” for those that don’t.<br>
• He said he got his greenies from “Latin players.”</p>

<p>Then it starts getting fun, because, as <a href="http://www.all-baseball.com/double/archives/023141.html">noted by Double Play Depth</a>,
Grimsley starts going crazy and naming a TON of names. In the current
affidavit, they’re blacked out … but it’s only a matter of time until
they leak too. (We’re actually surprised they bothered blacking them
out this time.) Grimsley has since said he will no longer cooperate,
but we’ll see how long that lasts.</p>

<p>Whether you think this steroid business is overblown or if you a
“what about the kids?” type of guy, this is certianly not going away.
We imagine Barry Bonds being happy; he would never talk to someone like
Jason Grimsley. Takes some heat off him.</p>

<p>By the way, big Deadspin prizes and man-hugs to anyone who can
figure out how to read the names under the black marker there. Any
forensic scientists out there?</p>

Damn straight.

I'm not sure what's better, hearing or not hearing about this stuff?

Re: Federal Agents Raid Diamondbacks Jason Grimsley's Home

hmm, according to ESPNRadio today he listed about 30 players, and some were pretty big names. I really hope Clemens and Pujols aren't on the list. As well as my boy Manny. If Tejada's name is mentioned I'd be worried for him as it would be the 2nd time a fellow player has linked him to steroid use. I don't know who it is, but I bet those names are leaked before monday.
