Seems other sports have no problem letting guys off.

Anyone heard this before ".....because I have nothing to hide. I have passed over 25 drug tests in my career, including at least three in the past year."

I always get a tremendous laugh out of these statements. The average MLB fan probably hasn't the slightest ides just how routine the whole charade appears to those of us with a more seasoned perspective.  "Three...in the past year."  ;D

Oh, make it stop!

I especially liked this quote from the New York Times

The ruling was a blow to Major League Baseball and Commissioner Bud Selig, who has repeatedly said that his sport now has a comprehensive testing system second to none and that it has fully addressed a drug problem that has plagued it for more than a decade.  ::)
