Say It Ain’t So, Baby Bull

https://i0.wp.com/www.geocities.com/Colosseum/Field/9257/cepeda.jpgThis story got our morning off to a sad start.

Giants great and current Hall of Famer Orlando Cepeda, 69, was pulled over in Cordelia after being clocked at 83 mph on the freeway. Unfortunately for everyone involved, that’s not where the story ends. The CHP officer on the scene smelled marijuana in the car, which eventually led to a cornucopia of illegal … stuff:

The officer called for a K-9 unit, and the officers found marijuana, a bundle containing a white substance believed to be either methamphetamine or cocaine, and a syringe, Corrington said.

Cepeda was cooperative during the stop and showed no signs of being under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time, authorities said. He was booked at Solano County Jail on suspicion of speeding, possession of marijuana while driving, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

A syringe? Heavens, Orlando.

Cepeda took a $500 signing bonus from the Giants when he signed as a mere 17 year-old and started his career at Seals Stadium. The Pride of Puerto Rico was the 1973 Rookie of the Year and was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1999. He is (was?) firmly entrenched in the Giants’ pantheon, along with Mays, McCovey and Marichal.

But will someone please tell him that he’s no longer a pro athlete?

    Tony LaRussa will be proud. Josh Hancock may be gone, but SF Giant Community Relations doper Orlando Cepeda is still speeding in more ways than in his car.

    Pulled over for speeding by the California Highway Patrol, the officer discovered:

    1) marijuana
    2) cocaine
    3) syringes
    4) liquide methamphetamines

    This HOF MLB drug addict speaks to ‘at-risk children’ re: ‘the dangers of drugs’.

    btw: NO CHARGED WERE FILED!!!!! Typical MLB exemption for cheating.

    Is there even just one MLB employee who is NOT a full blown steroid, amphetamine and alcohol drug addict?

    I say NO!

    Josh Hancock was yet another Tony LaRussa doped protege.

    Others:
    Bobby Welch
    Dennis Erkersley
    Dave Stewart
    Jose Canseco
    Mark McGwire
    Tony Phillips
    Dave Parker

    Does anyone actually trust Tony LaRussa’s MLB image? He hides behind lost animals (ARF) to maks his doping crimes. They all do.
