The effects of PEDs on baseball: negligible.
After all, baseball is a game. Its players necessarily abide by otherwise arbitrary rules that only make sense in the context of baseball. Why do players run the bases in a clockwise direction? Because the rules say so. There is no economic, social, legal, or moral benefit to picking this over counterclockwise. MLB runs the game. They say: clockwise. And so it is.
This may seem self-evident to you, but on a day like today it doesn’t to me. Not on a day when the Capitol Hill for the House Oversight committee decides to intimidate aging athletes – again. Not on a day when it feels compelled to seek clarity on matters such as 1. parties attended by Jose Canseco and 2. Roger Clemens’ glutes. As far as I know, the Constitution doesn’t give the Federal Government the authority to regulate baseball. What am I missing?
