The steroid that Rafael Palmeiro allegedly took is a powerful drug, experts say, one not likely to be ingested unwittingly. The drug, stanozolol (sta-NOZ-ah-lol), is an anabolic steroid that has been used for decades. "It's potent. It's up there in the major leagues of anabolic steroids," said Dr. Gary Wadler of New York University, a leading expert on steroid use. Steroid experts said it was unlikely that Palmeiro had accidentally taken stanozolol. "It's virtually impossible to imagine how someone could have taken stanozolol without knowing it," Wadler said.

The man whose finger-wagging image may forever be the lasting snapshot of baseball's so-called steroid era hasn't paid much attention to the sport's most recent drug scandal. Rafael Palmeiro spends his mornings working out, his days playing baseball with his two sons at his suburban Dallas home and his nights watching on TV as his former teammates throughout the majors play the game he still loves. He has seen the ESPN and newspaper reports that his former Orioles teammate, Jason Grimsley, allegedly said in a federal affidavit that Grimsley took human growth hormone and other illegal steroids.

CHICAGO -- Boxer Fernando Vargas, who once tested positive for the anabolic steroid stanozolol after a fight, will throw out the first pitch at Wrigley Field tomorrow when the Chicago Cubs play host to the St. Louis Cardinals. Vargas' throw, confirmed yesterday by Joe Rios, the Cubs' manager of entertainment, will take place one day after the Orioles' Rafael Palmeiro returns from his 10-day suspension for having tested positive for, it has been reported, stanozolol.

INDIAN WELLS, CALIF. -- Rafael Palmeiro finally came forth yesterday with his long-awaited explanation of the positive steroid test that has stained his great career, and the only thing missing was the last line: "That's my story and I'm sticking to it." We waited 3 1/2 months for Palmeiro to either come clean or give us some reason to believe that he never, ever intentionally used illegal performance-enhancing drugs, but the statement he released through his attorneys yesterday was largely a restatement of the facts and excuses that trickled out in the days and weeks after the stunning Aug. 1 announcement that he had tested positive for steroids.

While Orioles first baseman Rafael Palmeiro chased historic hit No. 3,000 last month, he did so with the knowledge that he had failed a drug test. According to a source familiar with the chronology, Palmeiro tested positive for a steroid in May and appealed the ruling in secret arbitration proceedings in June. He then had to wait for an arbitration decision as he neared his 3,000th hit, which he got on July 15. During that time, Palmeiro's situation was known only to certain representatives from Major League Baseball and the players union until it was made public Monday, the source said.

WASHINGTON - A House committee is investigating whether Orioles star Rafael Palmeiro committed perjury in testifying March 17 that he never used steroids. Rep. Tom Davis, a Virginia Republican who chairs the House Government Reform Committee, told Palmeiro privately Tuesday night that the panel is duty-bound to investigate whether the ballplayer lied when he pointed a finger and told committee members: "I have never used steroids. Period." The perjury investigation, just under way, was triggered by Monday's announcement that Palmeiro, 40, has tested positive for a steroid, later determined to be stanozolol.

On a stifling August dog-day afternoon, the city's shoulders seemed a little more hunched, its gait a little more shuffling, and not just from the oppressive heat and humidity. "If what we've heard about Palmeiro is the way it really is, then it's just sad," said Mike Durham, owner of The Sport Shop, a store that sells jerseys, hats and accessories at Harborplace on Baltimore's waterfront. Durham was referring, of course, to the 10-day suspension of star Orioles first baseman Rafael Palmeiro after testing positive for steroid use. "The fans who come in here are fans, and I couldn't tell you whether we've sold more or fewer Palmeiro shirts over the last two days," said Durham, 59. "But I do know that the local fans who are coming in here are all saying how sad it is."

Rafael Palmeiro's 10-day, steroids--related suspension ends today, and he now faces an uncertain - and potentially harrowing - adjustment as he rejoins the Orioles and faces baseball fans to whom he has provided an incomplete explanation. Palmeiro, who was in contact with Orioles players during his suspension, returns for tonight's game against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, but may view the game from the dugout. Orioles manager Sam Perlozzo said he might ease Palmeiro back into the lineup, not to protect him from the fans' wrath, but rather to allow the 40-year-old first baseman to work his way back into shape for a day or more.

WASHINGTON - A House committee remains uncertain whether there is enough evidence to warrant referring Rafael Palmeiro's steroids case to the Justice Department for a perjury investigation, and it is considering several options for handling his case. In one scenario, the House Committee on Government Reform would make public the documents it received Aug. 12 from Major League Baseball related to the Orioles first baseman's positive steroids test, according to officials familiar with the discussions.
