Thursday: Washington Nationals -205. Hate laying so much chalk but we have some great variables here. This line should actually be closer to -300. It's TOUGH on a road team the next day after going into extra innings and losing. Furthermore, Alec Asher is not a quality MLB pitcher. His numbers were crap last year so he dabbled in PED's and got busted. He's coming off a 50 game suspension and will be rusty as he's only thrown a few innings at low level minor league ball and 4 innings 5 days ago at AAA. Lastly, the guy misses his spots as evidenced by giving up 22 dingers in only 153 minor league innings last year. In his short MLB stint last season, he was beat up pretty good. Washington wins big here. - 9/8

"We are being unfairly punished. If the drug testing agencies cannot determine if an athlete is taking performance enhancing drugs how are the teammates supposed to know?... It negates all the family functions, church functions, and social events we missed in the name of winning an Olympic medal." ]
Stacking is taking multiple types of steroids at once or mixing oral and injectable formulations. Many steroid abusers believe stacking increases results, but this method has not been scientifically proven.
