WASHINGTON — Ticklethewire.com’s own columnist Greg Stejskal is stirring up a little controversy in major league baseball.

The retired Michigan FBI agent, who became one of  the FBI’s expert on steroid use in sports, told the N.Y. Daily News earlier this week that one time slugger Mark McGwire used some type of steroids while he played.

“The FBI agent who led a landmark steroid investigation said investigators obtained information that former home run king Mark McGwire – who is ending a self-imposed exile to return to the St. Louis Cardinals as the team’s hitting coach – had used performance-enhancing drugs in the early 1990s,” The Daily News reported in Monday’s edition.

“We had information, after Operation Equine had finished, that we believed to be credible info that McGwire did in fact use steroids,” Stejskal told the Daily News. “And then you look at the physical changes. Based on a certain amount of expertise, his physical development would indicate steroid use.”

The St. Louis Cardinals announced Monday that McGwire will join the coaching staff.
