    THG bust hailed as a success

    After uncovering what's been referred to as the "possibly the largest anabolic steroid drug bust in
    U.S. history", anti-doping authorities are hailing the recent tetrahydrogestrinone (THG) affair as a
    big success in the fight against doping. The drug, believed to have been manufactured in a
    Californian nutritional supplement laboratory, was supposedly an "undetectable steroid" that could
    be used by athletes (particularly track and field) to enhance performance without risk of testing
    positive. The difference between THG and other banned drugs is that it appears to have been designed
    with the specific purpose of doping in mind. Acting off a tip-off from a track and field coach in
    June, the US Anti-Doping Agency together with the US Department of Justice pinpointed the drug's
    source allegedly to the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative (BALCO), which supplies high profile
    athletes such as baseball play Barry Bonds and sprinter Marion Jones.

    Can there be any question about the male baseball player in question? All of a sudden, in his
    mid-30's, his stats explode:
    http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/players/stats?statsId=3918&context=batting "OPS" is really the best
    all-around offensive stat. Bill James showed back in 1978 or so that baseball player peak at around
    27, not 37....
