Nice puff piece, the first sentence makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside...

Major League Baseball and the Players Association have agreed to an enhanced drug policy that enacts all of the recommendations made by former Sen. George Mitchell in his report that analyzed the use of performance-enhancing drugs in the sport late last year.

Does it?

In the report, Mitchell made 20 recommendations to strengthen the current program, about a half-dozen of which couldn't be adopted unless the changes were collectively bargained.

Of course not, the best recommendations would never get past the union...
