Selig: Positive tests to be expected: "Commissioner Bud Selig responded Monday to news of a second positive test for steroids by saying: "I'm afraid this probably won't be the last one." The Commissioner was in Boston to observe the ceremonies celebrating the Red Sox 2004 World Series championship and the Red Sox home opener against the New York Yankees. But this happy event coincided with the report that Jorge Piedra, an outfielder on the Colorado Rockies 40-man roster, had tested positive for steroids." It's so odd how the reports come out as something that would take the focus off of it is happening. For example, the announcement of Alex Sanchez being suspended happened right before opening day. Are they going to be telling us everything right before something big is going to happen....Everyone better watch out....they'll announce a dozen major people a day before the all-star game the way they're going at it.

'Operation Cluck': How pathetic are the giants fans that even if they don't have Barry Bonds they still bring out the pathetically stupid rubber chickens and hang them up when Odalis Perez of the Dodgers walks the giants catcher and 8th hitter Mike Matheny with 2 outs and a runner on third to get to the pitcher and the final out of the inning. Giants fans, please get a life because you sure don't know anything about the game of baseball. If you did you wouldn't be carrying about those stupid chickens with you and you sure as hell wouldn't be hanging a lame chicken up on your wall because a Giant got walked intentionally. Giants fans please find some new excuses as to why your team just plain sucks. Thanks. Your Truly, The Dodger Fans

38 Minor Leaguers Suspended: This coming a day after Alex Sanchez became the first Major League player to be suspended for failing a drug test. Looking at the 38 players and their respective teams, it seems to be a team problem with steroids. The Mariners top the list with 8 players, followed by the Cubs with 7. The Athletics, Rangers, and Angels all have 5 offenders. The Padres have 4, the rockies have 2, and the Cardinals and White Sox each have 1 offender a piece. If there is such a problem in the minor league level, how is the problem not ending up at the major league level all the time? Something more than a 15 day suspension and a slap on the wrist needs to be done to these steroid users that are ruining the way the game is susposed to be played.
