This is the biggest thing for me--where were these tough-guy sportswriters taking a tough stand against PEDs *while* it was happening? It looks like a cover-your-ass move by them now because they completely ignored the situation as it unfolded. It was their responsibility to inform the public of this sort of behavior because they were in those locker rooms and they failed at it miserably all in exchange for some cheeky quotes...
"On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."
