MLB | Steinbach, Lansford Say McGwire was Clean

The San Francisco Chronicle's John Shea reports former Oakland Athletics C Terry Steinbach and former Athletics 3B Carney Lansford, teammates of former Athletics 1B Mark McGwire, said McGwire never took steroids. "I came through the system with Mark; we were roommates in '87," said Steinbach, recalling their rookie year. "Mark wasn't one of those guys who all of a sudden one offseason got so big you couldn't recognize him, like they say about steroid users. Mark loved to lift weights. ... He was in the gym regularly." "Jose (Canseco)? No, at least not in the gym at the Coliseum or the gyms set up for us on the road. He was phenomenal in '88. Up to that point, he showed up on time and did his drills. All of a sudden, he didn't do the extra work in the outfield, and it showed. It frustrated us as teammates. It was frustrating that 24 guys marched to the same beat and Jose didn't."
