View PostThen Brady Andersen...do you believe Tejada actually wrote 2 checks totalling approx $6,000 for the drugs headscratch.gif None of these guys were ever considered Einsteins I guess?

 

 

 

It wasn't against the rules back then. Same way they caught Jason Grimsley. He had the stuff shipped to his house.

Actually, the real truth is somewhere in the middle - it wasn't a substance specifically banned by baseball. But it was against the law (without a prescription) and baseball did indeed have general 'don't break the law' coverall rules...so yes, they broke baseball rules.

But there was no rules in place or penalties set in place in MLB. Yes it was against the law but MLB always turned there head, untill somebody wanted to make a big deal out of it and then they made the rules and penalties.

That's true - but baseball does have 'general' integrity rules in place in which they can interpret any way they'd choose...which is a lousy way of running business, but is something baseball has used to their advantage for a long time...like forever.

 

But the point is that this rule is in place and among other things, would cover breaking the law (obtaining substances illegally)...not right that they only did this arbitrarily...but it's there

Then why were all 109 samples from 2003 kept confidential and not labled as to whose sample it was?

 

It may have been against the law but baseball always turned the other way untill somebody put some heat on them.

Very simple processing on these raft survivor people. Send them back where they came from and let them play baseball in their own country. See if they really "love" the game after signing a contract from their country for chicken crap! Greenbacks equal wetbacks, that's the sport these days.

Which is my point before - they have these 'catch all' rules in place, but only use them when it's to their benefit. A-Rod is still in the prime of his career and is a good source of income for MBL, why would they want to lose that? Crappy way of running business, but in my opinion, it's exactly how they do it. Send the old farts, such as Barry Bonds, etc to the wolfs so it looks like they're doing the jobs.

 

So at the end of the day, it's not that baseball didn't (or doesn't) have rules to enfore...it's how they enforce that's the issue. I just wonder how much dirty laundry baseball itself has as far as these cover ups before someone starts to look in their laundry basket.

hold it, the testing was agreed to by the union and MLB, for annonmous testing of the players. Samples were submitted and for all practical purposes were to be kept quiet. and they were.......that is until the data was subpoened by the feds in conjunction with the Balco investigation involving Bonds. So there is no conspiracy , no witch hunt. The irony is other than the players who took the steroids, If anyone is to blame is Barry Bonds.

 

this might actually shake some people loose to testify and leak additional info.
