Bud Selig, when asked if he would consider suspending Alex Rodriguez for his admission of steroid use, said, “It was against the law, so I would have to think about that.”
More from Selig’s statement, released today: “We are fully committed to ridding our game of steroids and other performance-enhancing substances.” … “These drugs and those who use them and facilitate their use threaten (wrong word. barn’s burned. horses dead) the integrity of our sport. It is disappointing that others may have acted to thwart or prevent a legitimate drug testing program from being implemented sooner (no introspection here? not even a little?). That only served to stiffen our resolve. We are very proud of the enormous progress we have made, and it is important to note that the recent revelations are at least five years old and a residue (CSI canvassed the scene) of pre-program behavior. But we will not rest or relax our efforts until the use of these illegal drugs are gone from baseball.”
Go get ’em, Bud. Glad to know you are out in front, and think that you always have been. He also said his heart was broken. I’ll send a pajamagram for V-Day.
