    MLB to test for HGH

    Boom goes the dynamite!

    Under the changes, players will be subject to random unannounced in-season blood tests for human growth hormone and baseline testosterone readings will be taken for all players to make it easier to detect the use of synthetic testosterone.

    I still say, "How do we know players are not given advance notice to clean their systems?"

    Case in point... lots of athletes getting arrested for recreational drugs, but never failing drug tests by their respective sports. Our Bengals have a had a few of these in the past (Chris Henry, Jonathan Joseph, etc). I have mentioned it before, but I know of a former NFL QB that smoked lots of weed. Was always informed by his team 90 days before getting tested. Imagine that. Only the dumb fail.
    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.

    As PEDs go this is a bridge to nowhere for baseball players.
