Dr. Anthony Galea is a name I hope I don’t hear much more.
Because a steroid scandal is the absolute last thing the Mets need.
Carlos Beltran and Jose Reyes have both been questioned by the FBI in connection with their relationship and visits to Dr. Galea’s office for treatment. Galea is being investigated by Canadian authorities for attempting to smuggle human growth hormones into the US.
Both players have met with investigators and discussed their treatment with Galea. Both claim that HGH or steroids were not involved or discussed.
Hopefully, as this week winds down, we hear less and less of this story. Unfortunately, steroids are too juicy of a story to overlook, so as long as it’s slightly relevant, it will be written about and discussed at length.
But please, for the sake of Mets fans minds everywhere, let’s hope we don’t hear much more of it. I think we have enough to worry about.
