Jay McGwire [Creep Of The Week]

Deadspin first reported on Wednesday that Jay McGwire, the younger brother of former Home Run Champ/Beloved Slugger/Savior of Baseball and current non-Hall of Famer Mark McGwire was shopping a tell-all book about how he introduced Mark to steroids.

The book, titled "THE MCGWIRE FAMILY SECRET: The Truth about Steroids, a Slugger, and Ultimate Redemption" details how Jay introduced Mark to steroids in 1994 (a season in which he played only 47 games), so he “wouldn’t lift his way out of baseball” and help with joint problems and muscle recovery.

The reason behind the book you might ask: it seems that the younger brother has some financial problems but more importantly, found God.
"Mark is a man I think most would like to forgive because his reason wasn’t nefarious—it was for survival. My bringing the truth to surface about Mark is out of love. I want Mark to live in truth to see the light, to come to repentance so he can live in freedom—which is the only way to live."
Now that is love, selling your brother out and further diminishing his reputation and career (though I am not sure it can get much worse), all so he can live in freedom. Sounds like one hell of a bond between brothers.

Note to Mark: It probably would have been a good idea to not ruin the relationship or let your brother/drug dealer go broke, especially after your wonderful experience with Congress.

Note to Jay: Judging from the picture above, you might want to reconsider the title of your book if you ever want to get it published. I don’t think it was much of a secret you both were on roids.

  1. I love Jay's peddling the t-shirt, "Do I Use Steroids? No, but thanks for asking! McGwire's Fitness."
