Jack Cust, really?

From the Mitchell Report:

"Jack Cust is an outfielder who began his major league career with the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2001. Since then, he has played for five teams in Major League Baseball, the Diamondbacks, Colorado Rockies, Baltimore Orioles, San Diego Padres, and Oakland Athletics. In 2007, he played with Oakland.

At the beginning of the 2003 season, Cust and Larry Bigbie were both playing for Baltimore’s class AAA affiliate in Ottawa. Bigbie’s locker was next to Cust’s. Cust eventually asked Bigbie if he had ever tried steroids. Bigbie acknowledged he had, and Cust said that he, too, had tried steroids. Cust told Bigbie that he had a source who could procure anything he wanted, but Bigbie informed him he already had a friend who could supply him.

In order to provide Cust with information about these allegations and to give him an opportunity to respond, I asked him to meet with me; he declined" (159).

I'm sure it's possible, but this anecdote sounds the thinnest out of all of them. Maybe he'll man up to it, if not I'll continue heaping all the blame on McGuire, even though he saved baseball's ass by shrinking his own nuts, he (re)started it.

Yeah, it seems McCarthy era flimsy.
