Op-Eds Speaking Truth to the Powers-That-Be
A little sports truth for those who think that MLB is doing more than rounding up the “usual suspects” a-la “Casablanca” when they propose 100 game suspensions for substance cheaters. There is no rule against steroid use in the game, just a deal with the MLBPA that’s toothless. Brian Ross explains in a piece for The Huffington Post:
“Did you know that there is no rule against steroid use in the rule book of Major League Baseball (MLB)? Swearing, spitting, fighting, and gambling, yes. Performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs)? No.
If you want to know the truth about what will happen in their “get tough” dealings with Alex Rodriguez and others who might be outed by the Biogenesis clinic scandal, look at what they did with Manny Ramirez.”
