Matthews Not Here To Talk About The Past

Seriously, is Mark McGwire consulting Gary Matthews Jr. on how to conduct an interview about steroids and HGH? Here is what Sarge Jr. had to say about the whole situation.

"I just want to tell you guys that I'm not really in a position to answer any specific questions on yesterday's story. I do want to say that I do expect it to resolve itself here in the near future pretty soon. I've got my representative looking for more information on it and to find out stuff. Until we find out more stuff, I just can't comment on it. At the appropriate time I will address the matter."

Notice he didn’t deny using HGH/roids. He might has well have just said, "I'm not here to talk about the past." Or maybe he could have broken out with a, "I don't speak English."

If you are innocent of taking the juice, here is how that interview should have gone.

Hey Gary, are you HGH?

No.

What are your thoughts of being linked to a steroids probe in Pittsburgh?

It's (expletive).

How do you explain your average jumping up by 40 points last season?

One more dying quail each week.
.

Then he should have made like Tommy Lasorda and threatened to sue the person who named names. But Matthews response does not paint a picture of innocence.

I think there is a class that they all go to for this. I think Bonds sits at the head of the class and McGwire already graduated.

All these men have a future in politics.

I can neither confirm nor deny that you just asked me a question. My agent is looking into whether or not we wish to inquire further into this potential inquiry. Thank you for your supposed time.
