I’m glad we got rid of this guy. He pitched crappy this year, and now he’s got this cloud hanging over him:
Scott Schoeneweis, the veteran New York Mets reliever and a survivor of testicular cancer, received six steroid shipments from Signature Pharmacy while playing for the Chicago White Sox in 2003 and 2004, ESPN has learned.
According to a source in Florida close to the ongoing investigation of Signature, Schoeneweis’ name appears on packages that were sent to Comiskey Park while the White Sox were battling to win the AL Central title in 2003. Two more shipments arrived at the stadium in 2004, months before Schoeneweis underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left elbow.
Schoeneweis vehemently denies any wrongdoing, so we’ll give him the benefit of the doubt and see how it plays out. Doesn’t look good, though.
