So what's going on in the world of baseball? Not much. However there are some very relevant things going on right now that fans should be aware of.
More Ritalin Please!
According to a report in the New York Times the amount of players using Ritalin and Adderall has more than tripled over the course of one year. Baseball officials first became suspicious when ball players began studying harder for longer and scoring higher grades on their exams then before. More red flags were raised after ball players sat through an entire lecture by Bud Selig and actually paid attention.
I want a recount!
It looks like Baseball's Commissioner Bud Selig had his contract extended through 2012. Clearly, I had no vote. Besides leading Baseball into the steroid era, looking the other way while Baseball benefited from the steroid era, then beginning a witch hunt called the Mitchell Report to shift the blame of the steroid era off his shoulders, I suppose he's had a successful term. He did begin revenue sharing, which I agree with, but I do not think I will be campaigning for 4 more years of this guy.
Calling all cars, Miguel Tejada is on the loose!
It looks like the Feds have begun their investigation of Miguel Tejada. Its about time! I think we'll all feel a lot safer once he's off the streets.
When does Baseball start?
