Given the nature of the HGH testing (it's only detected in the blood stream, shortly after injection), I'd have to imagine that someone ratted him out....that or he has the worst timing imaginable.
Of all of the banned substances though, why would he choose HGH?

I think your comment actually answers your question. The window for MLB to bust him is actually very short, so he went with something that would be less likely to show up in a screen.

"All those that value clean sport know that HGH testing is a necessary part of an effective anti-doping program; otherwise you give athletes a license to use this potent performance enhancing drug with impunity," Tygart said. "This case demonstrates how MLB has stepped up to the plate and implemented HGH testing in the minor leagues to protect clean athletes and the integrity of competition."

Somewhat nice to see one of these cheats own up, take responsibility, and not b.s. about what caused the positive test.

And then there's this fucking clown:
I'm kind of sick of people completely ignoring science in favor of rhetoric, which is something that has pissed me off about the steroids bullshit basically forever.

Right, because its a complete coincidence that a record that was not only unbroken, but basically not seriously challenged for almost 40 years was broken 6 different times by 3 different players, all of whom later admitted to or were caught taking steriods, HGH, or both. Obviously, its just because they were the bestest darnest hardest working most talented home run hitters ever.
How's the view from under the sand?

You guys can believe who you want, but my point is that the rhetoric has always sucked and I hate zealotry.
