Oh, of course one other that happened over the weekend was the news that A-Rod tested positive for steroids in 2003 (I’d offer a better link than this, but finding an actual hard news story in sports is difficult and time consuming because sports journalism is almost entirely opinion). Anyway, to be a hypocrite and contribute to the opinion cacophony that is sports journalism, I’ll just go ahead say this renders baseball in 1990s and early 2000s a complete joke. Of course, not everyone cheated, but the fact that you could not have been the best player during that time period without taking steroids essentially invalidates everything that happened from a historical-competitive perspective. That’s really too bad.
Frankly, the best way for MLB to rehabilitate its image would to provide and publicize on a regular basis, test results from every player in the league. Any thoughts?
