Steroid-era confessions and denials
Bronson ArroyoOne day after Ortiz and Ramirez were outed for banned substance use in 2003, Bronson Arroyo said that he wouldn't be shocked if he was on the 2003 list as well. Arroyo said he used androstenedione before the MLB banned it in 2004, and amphetamines until 2006. Arroyo, now a Cincinnati Red, played with the Red Sox from 2003 until 2005. "Before 2004, none of us paid any attention to anything we took," Arroyo said, according to the Boston Herald. "Now they don't want us to take anything unless it's approved. But back then, who knows what was in stuff? The FDA wasn't regulating stuff, not unless it was killing people or people were dying from it." Arroyo said andro "made me feel great, I felt like a monster. I felt like I could jump and hit my head on the basketball rim."
