More bad news for a Met

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.

"I don't even know what that is," Schoeneweis said, according to the Daily News. "Steroids in Florida? I never received anything from Florida. I'm not going to comment. I never even heard of it."

Getting your drug mailed to the ballpark is as dumb as you can get. Even Doc Gooden had enough sense to smuggle his blow to the park in his rosin bag.

He was always a situational lefty. None of those guys are really good. Just lucky they wwere left handed.
