Op-Eds Speaking Truth to the Powers-That-Be

MLB Won’t Get Healthy Until Selig Gets Tough: Baseball’s Fungible Steroids Rules

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.”

About Truth-2-Power

A phrase coined by the Quakers during in the mid-1950's, "Speak truth to power," was a call for the United States to stand firm against fascism and other forms of totalitarianism; it is a phrase that seems to unnerve political right, with reason. The Founding Fathers of United States risked their lives in order to speak truth to the power of King George and the mighty British Empire. It was and is considered courageous. Join us!
