Just what does it take to commit a doping infraction in Major League Baseball? You pretty much have to get caught injecting HGH or steroids in the Commissioners office if recent rulings are any indication. MLB decided that there was "insufficient evidence" to suspend four players including Troy Glaus of the Toronto Blue Jays.
This is pretty incredible when you consider that Glaus received multiple shipments of nandralone and testosterone; Scott Schoeneweis of the NY Mets received six shipments of steroids; and Rick Ankiel of St. Louis admitted to using HGH. If doping weren't such a serious problem that has infected sports like baseball and football right down to the high school level, this might even be funny.
But as it stands, the Commissioner and MLB should be embarrassed. So should MLB sponsors. As a cyclist I find it particularly frustrating that while cycling has gone to great lengths to clean itself up, sponsors like Telekom continue to abandon the sport while doping is accepted in big North American pro sports. Sponsors and fans alike should start voting with their dollars. That's the only way that the doping is going to stop.
