The wild, wacky, God-awful human hellscape that is the book-jacket blurb. Plus, five questions with Andrew Epperson and the time my employer insisted everyone had to attach themselves to a desk.
I have never bought a book based on blurb. There is no proof that Ortiz was took PED's. His name and others were leaked to the New York Times. Ortiz never tested positive for any banned substances after Major League Baseball implemented a formal program starting in 2004. However, he was reportedly one of the players who turned in a positive sample in 2003 when the league did confidential survey testing of players as it attempted to get an understanding of the scope of performance enhancing drug usage in the sport. It is always possible he was juicing while he was with Minnesota but we will never know.
