If you tuned in to the Boomer and Carton show on WFAN today, you are probably a little pissed as I am.
Here is what happened. Mike Lupica of the NY Daily News wrote a fantastic article on the whole Jose Reyes and HGH topic. I LOVE Mike Lupica. He is one of the few sports writers that I do like. To Lupica’s credit, he does NOT say that Reyes took any HGH. Nobody is even saying he ALLEGEDLY took any. Well, nobody except Carton.
Yes, that is what Carton said. He seems to think that he is an expert in the field. Well, he said he spoke with a doctor. Here’s what he said:
I spoke to doctors.
Well I hope those “doctors”, if you really did talk to any, are not your doctor, Mr. Carton. Based on some preliminary research I have done, in no way, shape or form is a hyperactive thyroid even related to HGH. It is not even a way of treating it. If Reyes were to have “healed faster” like HGH is supposedly supposed to help with, then HGH certainly did not do it’s job since Reyes missed the rest of the season.
Carton you were careless. There is no other way to go about it.
Do us all a favor, Mr. Carton. Stop trying to be the shock jock of sports radio. You suck at it and at some point, you are going to bring WFAN a big lawsuit. Freedom of speech only goes so far.
