    You have to give baseball a hand for catching a guy who has only hit 4 home runs in 1,351 at bats. If baseball was really serious about their drug policy you would expect the Bonds, and Giambi’s to have had positive drug test by now. But they haven’t and this is just another example of the incompetence of the people running baseball. [font=&quot]Oh yeah I didn’t notice a previous thread on this, but if there is one just ignore this one[/font]

    What sort of logic is that?

    The same kind of logic that says if stupid fucking Canadians weren't running Hockey we would have had a season? :wink2:

    MLB loves this. They can throw this bitch under the bus and not give a shit what happens to him.

    LoKyBuckeye I give up. This board is too hard to understand.

    Big deal. MLB's entire policy is a joke. A bad player on a bad team.... they need to test more and test for the right things.

    Actually the two people at the centre of the hockey strike Bob Goodenow and Gary Bettman are both Americans, and yeah my logic was a bit messed up but i think that if baseball was really serious about fixing the steroid problem they would be catching the big cheaters, the people hitting crazy amounts of home runs or the ones who gain 15 or 20 pounds of muscle in the off-season.

    they cant make them test positive. if you think bonds/giambi/sosa will test positive under the current testing things then either they are completely retarded or...........ill stop there :biggrin:

    Funny how they all seem to concentate around a few MLB organizations. 8 for Seattle, 7 for the Cubs, 5 each from the A's, Angels, and Rangers.

    as far as MLB's testing policy, i don't think you can do much more than all that random testing per week and knowing everyone will be randomly tested at least once during the year, added on so normal testings. I just think they have to be more harsh with the penalties. Correct me if i'm wrong (because im writing all of this based on what i remember from articles, no referances at the moment), but doesn't the MLB have a "5 strikes and you're out" rule or some other bullshit? I know its atleast 5. That is completely ridiculous. I believe in second chances and all, but i don't think anyway do you give the guy more than 3 strikes. And even that 10 game suspension that Sanchez got isn't that big of a deal. Up it to like 15-20 games and a hefty fine. Scare the shit out of these cheaters and make sure that they are gonna play straight.

    Well- I'm going to work on having their citizenship revoked... I've had enough of their crap.

    But 27 is right... you can't just go catch the "big Cheaters" if they're not "big Cheating" anymore... plus... maybe this kid hits zero dingers in his career off roids... 0 to 4 is a big percentage increase. :wink2:
