Ex-manager: Leave Mike Piazza alone!

Bulging muscles the result of weights, not steroids, says Lasorda

After all the steroid revelations, most people just assume that any baseball star of the ’90s was probably juicing. But though a new book names superstar catcher Mike Piazza as a notable steroid user, Piazza’s former manager Tommy Lasorda insists the rumours can’t possibly be true. He says that Piazza only had all those bulging muscles because “I saw him in the weight room working out all the time,” and that Piazza can’t be a steroid user because “He goes to church, he’s got a nice family.” Lasorda hasn’t shown this much faith in anything since he told us that those Slim-Fast milkshakes would make us lose weight.
