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.

Piazza goes to Padres

Yeah Mike Piazza is such a great 1B they should make him play first. I mean the guy played a whole 0 games at first last year....don't you think if he was any good at 1B or even maybe partly decent the Mets would've used him there, but he's not so good pick up Kevin Towers, your team's really getting better now.

"If steroids are cheating, why isn't LASIK?"

That was the stupidest article that I have ever read. What kind of little child wrote the article that the link is to? A week ago, Tiger Woods was celebrated for winning golf's biggest tournament, the Masters, with the help of superior vision he acquired through laser surgery. With the help of Superior vision? Tiger woods sees 20/20. That is what your born with. That's the correct eyesight that your susposed to have!!! If you have less than that, it could be from tons of different things and you would wear contacts or glasses instead. The Lasik proceedure only corrects your vision to what it is susposed to be, it doesn't make your vision some ungodly amount better than everyone else. Get a clue and a life. Steroids is cheating and it always will be...

Dodgers shock Giants in ninth.

Man o man the front page is gonna get cluttered if we start making a new entry for Every. Single. Baseball game. You must be a Giants fan :P I usually post on the Dodgers - Giants Rivalry mostly...never about the lame Diamondbacks :) I thought with Benitez out there, and with J.D. Drew coming up the game was over, but Benitez struggled and the unfortunate happened for Giants fans. Plus the post was to discuss Armondo Benitez's newly acquired Mariano Rivera virus....or maybe all the closers right now are struggling bad...Rivera, Benitez, Folke, Gagne...no good closer is being effective at this point in time.

Spreadin the boos.

Rivera has some real struggles that only come with the Red Sox. Since 2001, including post season, Mariano has only blown 16 saves against other teams while blowing 11 saves against the Red Sox alone. Hopefully Rivera will get out of the funk that he's in and regain his control too, but the Yankee's and Red Sox play another what 16 times or so, so it might be a long year for Rivera if the Red Sox keep lighting him up like that. ohhh and A-rod needs to learn how to handle the hot corner a little better than that...making two errors on the same play was pretty pathetic for Yankee fans. Paying so much for someone to drop the ball in the clutch, not once, but twice....ouch.
