This list is supposedly the complete list of the 103 players who tested positive for banned substances back in 2003. It’s being thoroughly debunked by the Sons of Ivy.

Whoever made this up (assuming it’s fake) clearly hates the Cubs. Out of the 103, here are the current and former Cubs on the list:

1.Nomar Garciaparra
14.Alfonso Soriano
29.Milton Bradley
59.Derrek Lee
71.Moises Alou
72.Sammy Sosa
73.Corey Patterson
74.Carlos Zambrano
75.Mark Prior
76.Kerry Wood
77.Matt Clement
78.Antonio Alfonseca
79.Juan Cruz
80.Aramis Ramirez

    No one on that list would surprise me in the slightest. Lee is probably the biggest raised eyebrow since his power surge occurred after the testing went into place, but I can’t deem anyone clean.

    The other surprise would be Alfonseca because I have to wonder how much he would have sucked without steroids.

      You’re right. Although, with Alfonseca, the sixth finger should have been a tip-off.

    Are these in any certain order? Any reason why is Nomar #1?

    • Ace

      No idea. The whole thing just reeks of fakest fake that ever faked.

    No way in hell this list is true. I’d list all the reasons why here, but I just wrote a story on it. Basically, there are the wrong number of players, too many stars, and just a bunch of other reasons. It’s someone just trying to stir stuff up.

      Good stuff, Seth. And I agree.
