Quotes on the Rincon Steroid Suspension
"If Juan Rincon comes back and pitches 11 days from now, are the effects of steroids going to deteriorate to where his talent is back to his God-given level? No. He'll have the benefit of whatever steroids he took. I guarantee you, in 10 days, Juan Rincon does not become a mere mortal. I think he'll still be throwing the ball pretty good with the enhanced chemicals."
-- Angels manager Mike Scioscia
"No way. You're kidding me? I know him so well. He's not a guy who could inject that. ... I just know that Juan would be afraid to do anything like [take steroids] I think they need to tell people what the suspension is for, because people see a name on the screen and think he must be doing the same things as Canseco, when he really took some ephedra instead of andro."
-- Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz, Rincon's former Twins teammate
