    Mark McGuire's Brother's Book

    One of Mark McGuire's brothers has a book coming out on Monday, detailing how he hooked Mark up with steriods and alleges he knew it would increase his production, not just heal from injuries.

    Mark McGwire saddened by brother's betrayal in writing book about steroid use - ESPN

    One of the weird things I caught in this article:

    "The brothers haven't spoken since 2002. They fell out after Jay McGwire's stepson, Eric, tickled Mark and caused Mark to spill coffee on himself. Mark then swatted Eric on the backside. Jay's wife, Francine, then refused to attend Mark's wedding."

    Hacked?

    Re: Mark McGuire's Brother's Book

    I can't believe a brother would do that to another brother. I just can't think of anything that would make me do that to one of my brothers no matter how much money someone gave me. Jay is a loser! Mark is no angel and he deserves the backlash he is getting, but you never sell out your family.

    Re: Mark McGuire's Brother's Book

    Is it possible the family is full of losers, of which Mark and Jay are two examples?

    EDIT: Not to try to turn this into an "I hate Mark McGuire because I hate the Cardinals" or whatever type thread. Honest question.

    Well, another brother, Dan, did go to Iowa for a while. He was a backup QB, IIRC.

    I am not a Mark Mac fan at all but I feel bad for him. His brother deserves an *** whooping in my opinion. That is a bunch of crap.

    Re: Mark McGuire's Brother's Book

    Didn't he have a brother that played QB for the Hawkeyes? I wonder how he feels about all of this...

    ... Just Googled him. Dan McGuire - Iowa QB 1987.

    Edit: I'm too slow, as usual.

    No matter how you feel about Mark or his family I am just saying it is never ok to turn on your family just so you can get paid.

    What about that quote I posted above? Is it just me or does it not fit in that article? It looks like someone included it as a joke.

    What if he's telling the truth? I imagine some (all?) things are embellished (at best), but still. Even you cannot believe that Mark is a saint and only juiced to recover from injury.

    If he's telling the truth (mostly), then I don't see it as turning on your family.

    I don't disagree with that quote even though I am a cards fan, but I personally see Jay's betrayal as worse. You just don't sell out your family even if you don't get along.

    Re: Mark McGuire's Brother's Book

    I guess I'm just hung up on that quote becuase the rest of the article is reasonably well written but that quote is a hodgepodge of information that is not easily read. Sorry - the perfectionist in me I guess.

    To me, it doesn't matter. NEVER sell your family out. Just stay out of the picture.

    I do not like Mark McGuire but I feel for him here. I could never do that to one of my brothers and if one of them did that to me, I'd be crushed. What a shame.

    Re: Mark McGuire's Brother's Book

    Is this book, the real reason that Mark finally admitted to it not too long ago?

    I agree, Jay should shut up.

    Poor Mark McGwire

    Cheaters should never be exposed under any circumstances.
