Baseball and steroids

We've seen this all before. A baseball player stands accused -- and this time admits -- to involvement with steroids and human growth hormone. Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Jason Grimsley was arrested by the FBI and is apparently naming names in major league baseball's latest black eye.

It will be interesting to see over the next few days and weeks and player's names get leaked out to the press and what reaction, if any, Bud Selig and the player's union have to this latest controversy. It's apparent to this observer that organized baseball would prefer to sweep this whole steroid issue under the rug. I really do hope Congress introduces legislation to force baseball to clean up its act!
