Vote: Did Rafael Palmeiro sell out a teammate?

Rafael Palmeiro isn't expected to play another game for the Baltimore Orioles this season, but his shadow continues to loom over the entire franchise.

The latest development in the positive steroid test that led to Palmeiro's suspension earlier this summer is a report that he may have implicated a teammate during a grievance hearing before his suspension was announced. According to an unnamed source familiar with the unsuccessful grievance, Palmeiro said vitamin B-12 he received from Miguel Tejada could have played a role in his positive test.

So with so much of this story still shrouded in secrecy, what do you think, SportsNation? Do you believe this news? Do you believe Tejada's denials in response to the story? And with the season winding to a close, how successful has baseball been in getting rid of steroids?
