(Photo: Mark J. Terrill/Associated Press) It’s obvious that Carlos Gomez’ performance in the early part of 2013 is enhanced compared to previous seasons.  These days, remarkable production can lead to speculation that a player might not be enhancing appropriately.  Last week, The Brewer Nation included a post partially titled “In Defense of Carlos Gomez,” which recounted a talk radio discussion where one host said Gomez’ improved stats “raise an eyebrow.” The Brewer Nation’s defense of Gomez speaks for itself, but it also provides the opportunity to review what we think we know about PEDs.  Roger Clemens was acquitted of perjury charges last year, but it’s widely assumed that his dominating career was made possible by PEDs.  When Melky Cabrera was suspended for using PEDs last year, he was the top hitter in the NL.  Almost baseball fans outside of Milwaukee believe Ryan Braun owes his MVP in 2011 to PEDs.  It’s conventional wisdom that PEDs result in improved production.
