Selig officially announces investigation into past use of PEDs
2006-03-30 12:37
by Bob Timmermann

Commissioner Bud Selig at a joint press conference with former senator George Mitchell announced that there will be an investigation into past use of performance enhancing drugs in baseball.

Key point from the Associated Press account:
No matter what the findings of an investigation, it would be difficult for baseball to penalize anyone for steroids used before Sept. 30, 2002, when a joint drug agreement between management and the players' association took effect. Baseball began drug testing in 2003 and started testing with penalties the following year.

If Mark McGwire wouldn't answer a Congressional committee about possible past use of steroids, is George Mitchell going to have any luck? Who is going to ask the questions?

Perhaps Jack Bauer? "McGwire! You better tell me now if you used steroids or MILLIONS OF PEOPLE WILL DIE!!!". Then Bauer would shoot McGwire in the thigh.

Victor Conte was released from prison today and denied the assertions made in Game of Shadows.

This is going to turn into one of the ugliest stories in the games history. All so Selig can save face. What a dipshipt. I'm not absolving players, but whyinvestigate rule breaking when there were no rules in place.

If this is a legal thing, let the feds investigate it, it's not a baseball matter at this moment.
