Here we go again. I said Donnie Boy would use this is a ploy for the CBA talks. Looks like I hit it on the money again.

It better be a ploy. If they actually try to remove the drug testing and efforts to clean up the game, the public is going to stop caring or at least care a lot less.

Historic records is what keeps baseball interesting to many people if they start dropping like flies, people are going to tune out...

Several comments by congress members already on this, from a request from the committee chair to Bud and the MLBPA on a position statement to talk of reviving Senator Bunning's proposed legislation---sure, everything's supposed to be on the table for the upcoming agreement, but congress is letting baseball know the new policy better be off the table real quick

+1 (Especially in an election year.)

The public backlash would be astounding.

No wonder Bonds announced he wants to play another year. 2005 drug tests will be back. :rolleyes:

I'm continually amazed at how clueless both Fehr and Selig are on this issue.:o:
