Baseball's solution to the steroid problem
Eliot Pellman, Major League Baseball's medical advisor, likened steroid use to an "insidious, contagious disease," but defended baseball's current program. Pellman said that a new video will be shown to players, who will also have access to a special hotline.WOAH THERE! Slow it down, buddy. Maybe we should start with a few fliers and a web page. A special hotline and video is pushing the budget just a tad. No need to do more than we have to!
I would love to have seen the forehead slaps that followed this statement. This sounds like a little kid trying to come with an answer to the timeless parental question, "How do you think you should be punished?"
"Ummm... I guess I could skip watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles at 4 o'clock and only watch Mucha Lucha..."
I mean really, a video and a hotline? Pellman... You're sitting in a CONGRESSIONAL HEARING! Nobody wants to hear about your crappy video and phone counselors. Jeez.
