"Everybody juiced in some way," Lee said. "You had a rough night so you take a few greenies. That was tough playing in those days. These (players have access to) designer drugs like the East Germans were using a long time before. "The object of life is to try and live longer, be healthier. Ponce de Leon was looking for the Fountain of Youth. If you told me there was a magic bullet, I'd be knocking over old folks homes so I can pitch for one more year. Every kid's a little bit bigger. It is out there in our society. "To single out ballplayers and BALCO for putting a little Clear on the back of your tongue to make you heal faster from injuries ... hell, how many times did I get injected? At the end of the '74 season I couldn't get out of bed because my kidneys shut down. That's what the team put me on."
