Naming names

Add Jose Guillen, Ismael Valdez and Matt Williams to the list of known steroid users. Unless you believe they bought the stuff for research purposes. And no, to mention the excuse du jour, I don't believe Matt Williams spent $11,600 on drugs without knowing precisely what they were.

Here's an interesting opening day nine:

SP: Paul Byrd
C: Benito Santiago
1B: Jason Giambi
2B: Neifi Perez
3B: Troy Glaus
SS: Miguel Tejada
RF: Gary Sheffield
CF: Mike Cameron
LF: Barry Bonds

Each of these players is suspicious at best. We can also call in Jason Grimsley, Guillermo Mota, and Scott Schoenweiss in relief, and there's no shortage of hitters on the bench, two of which have hit 66 or more homers in a season. Third base alone is amazingly deep with Ken Caminiti, Adrian Beltre, and Matt Williams in the wings. IF Brian Roberts and OF Rick Ankiel add versatility. We can throw Ismael Valdez into the rotation. I'm sure this roster will fill out nicely very soon.
