NL West rules

Note no exclamation point. These are rules, like laws.

Arizona managing general partner wants to institute a stricter code of conduct for players on the DBacks. Kendrick told Arizona Republic columnist E.J. Montini that the team had "quietly" gotten rid of players they suspected of using steroids and other PEDs. Kendrick wanted to institute stricter rules for his team. The players don't think that Kendrick will get his way.

Other rules for teams in the NL West

Giants: You must be over 40.
Dodgers: You must be under 25.
Rockies: You must accept Jesus.
Padres: You must be willing to complain about the size of PETCO Park.

Whoops, wrong setting there on the comments

You forgot a few rules, Bob:

Padres: You must have frosted tips
Giants: You must urinate on your hands
Dodgers: You must live with Caroline Hughes
Rockies: You must buy the new video Ipod

The first link doesn't seem to be working anymore. It only takes me to a site map. Either that, or perhaps the site is enforcing Kendrick's code of conduct on baseball fans, too, and I've been released.

So is Russ Ortiz one of the players they've quietly released for using PEDs? Because if so, the drugs don't seem to have done him much good.

Were these "no steroids" rules in place before or after they traded Johnson and Schilling?

I was thinking maybe we could start some rumors about Brandon Webb.
