Baseball has another Lowe-down cheater

I was very disappointed to hear about this affair wrecking their marriage, but then I learned that Carolyn Hughes has really super hair, so maybe that justifies adultery after all.

Palmeiro took powerful steroid

Exactly, Evil one. That's why I say it's really a public health issue, i.e., "Would someone please think of the CHILDREN?!?" as opposed to a player-health or game fairness issue. What's driving congressional involvement in this matter are the stories of high-school age kids and so on taking steroids in order to be competitive and then suffering serious health consequences, often death, as a result.

I demand to see the results of the drug tests on those who pay $10 to go see a movie starring Rob Schneider. Back on topic... Baseball has ruled they give a player an unfair advantage. That may be the ostensible reason, but the real reason steroids are being tested for has to do with public health policy, and NOT with any supposed advantage given to a player by them.

I hate it when those steroids accidentally make their way into my Wheaties. Wish there was something I could do about that. I'll bet Raffy feels the same way.

Palmiero busted?

Ironically, in this comment thread all the condemnations of steroid use are accompanied on the right-hand-side of the page by a bunch of Google-sponsored ads like "Buy Legal Steroids" and "Buy Hardcore Anabolics".....

Toss Out All The Hall Of Shamers

"science also says a breaking ball is just an illusion and the ball doesnt really change direction...thousands who faced a wicked curve would take exception" Maybe they would. But then, they'd be wrong. Wouldn't be the first time.
