Pujols Offers Salary Back if Caught Using Steroids

Even though Cardinals 1B Albert Pujols was tested six times last year for steroid use and found to be clean, he is still feeling under suspicion, mainly because of the amazing year he's having. Now, he's starting to feel indignant. He told USA Today, "Come test me every day if you want. Everything I ever made in this game, I would give back to the Cardinals if I got caught." It seems to me that Pujols has been given his due lately as the undisputed dominant player of his day. Is he bringing on this talk himself by sounding so defensive? Would he be better off saying nothing and letting his bat and clean drug tests speak for him?
