Another two names from the infamous list of 103 players have been released, once again dredging up the past and leading everyone to wonder who else is on that list. It's time for MLBPA to get it's head out of its arse and let MLB release the list. That being said, it is not enough to release the names. What the players tested positive for must also be disclosed.
Here's why. There are many non-steroid substances that are banned by MLB's drug policy. When A-Rod admitted to his steroid use, he mentioned an over the counter energy drink that he used to take while in Seattle that was now banned. To my knowledge this drink does not contain steroids but some other banned substance. This is why the drug for which players tested positive must be released, since a positive test does not inherently mean a player took steroids, which is what everyone assumes. That is unfair to the players, minus those who took steroids and ruined the game by making it popular again.
Baseball and the MLBPA have to do the right thing here. Get the names and substances out there and let's move beyond this.
