Heck, pin a spotlight on "HOF" manager Tony LaRussa and show how his teams were at the epicenter of the steroid bust out.

Agreed that neither side's hands are clean in this and MLB only chose to go after the cheats after it became obvious to everyone what was going on and they could no longer make a buck off of the ShamME*, Mark "I'm not here to talk about the past" McGwire and Barroid show.

Bud wants to be viewed as the guy who saved MLB from steroids, but the truth is he is the one who let it get bad in the first place. Seeing a prime time expose on that simple fact would be teh awesome...
Remember though that MLB teams are making more money than ever before and teams worth are skyrocketing. TV contracts are huge and players salaries are increasing. Every one associated with the MLB has benefited, was this because of what the bud man did or is doing, I dont know but it sure hasnt hurt.
