I'm actually glad that he's asked for this, but it remains to be seen if MLB actually grants his request.

The Players’ Association worked out a one-time amendment to Rule 10.22(a) with MLB officials on Thursday.

Smart move. People resent those that try to deny they used PEDs; it shows he has some class and is regretful.

I've linked to this guy before. I'm still amazed that our small-town paper, the Mankato Free Press, has as good a baseball writer as he is. Anyway, I learned some interesting things about past commissioners messing with the batting title before:


"Nellie Fox, that little son of a gun, was always on base and was a great hit-and-run man. He sprayed hits all over."

Players are already in that situation, though. In subsequent years, you've had an MVP and batting champ test positive for PEDs. You think anyone who strives to be an MLB player isn't aware of the choice he has to make?
