Raul Ibanez

I was thinking about this kid, Jerod Morris, and his supposedly accusatory comments toward Raul Ibanez about potential steriod use. I realize that this is a dead horse that continues to be beaten but I just wanted to put in my two cents.

As a Mariner fan, I have been a Raul fan for the past few years when he was with us. Becasue of this, I know how prone to hot streaks he is. In fact, it seems like every year there is like a month and a half where he just owns everyone and everything. I think this fact is very lost to most people simply because where he played, he played for a small market team and his streaks were less publicized. I have heard announcers say countless times something along the lines of "If Raul Ibanez played for (insert Yankees, Red Sox, Dodgers, etc...) he would be a superstar." Now that he has moved from Seattle to a large market team, a team that just won the world series, he is in much more of a spotlight. His production didn't "come from nowhere," he has hot spots like this every year, the only difference is the amount of media he is getting this year.

I don't think it was Morris' intention to call out Raul as a steroid user, I think he was making a simple statement that in these times, unexpected production and publicity also brings steroid suspicion. I just wish that he knew Raul as I have before made it.
