Whether you believed Papi’s explanation or not, it was more plausible in that case than in this one. FDA regulation of the manufacture of supplements has come a long way in the past 15 years, and there’s no obvious reason why an American-born player like Chavis would be using foreign-source supplements.I'll give him the benefit the doubt just like so many have given Papi the same. We will never know for sure
More fundamentally, the rules changed in 2004; players are now responsible for what they put into their bodies. In addition to making Chavis liable to suspension for a positive test, that changes the moral and ethical calculus of turning a blind eye to what the actual ingredients in a purportedly legal supplement might be.
