ESPN Finally Allows Fernando Vina To Speak About Mitchell Report

ESPN ANALYST FINALLY GIVEN CHANCE TO DISCUSS HGH: When the Mitchell Report came out last Thursday, one of the names named was Fernando Vina, former player and current baseball analyst for ESPN. However, on the day the report was released, the Worldwide Leader neglected to quiz their employee about his role.

Now a few days later, the boys in Bristol finally sat down with Fernando to get his side of the story:

In his chat with Bob Ley on Monday, Vina admitted to using HGH, but denied he ever took steroids.Fernando said he took HGH during his injury-filled 2003 season, hoping the drugs would speed up his healing process. He said the substances didn’t help, and Vina was out of baseball by 2004.

Fernando came clean about his past use, and isn’t proud of it: “It’s something I regret. I’m embarrassed, and I’m just trying to go forward from here.”

Does this mean going forward to ESPN’s accounting dept. to pick up his severance package?
