It has been months now since we have heard the word "steroids" uttered in the sporting news about the allegedly "cheating" baseball players.

Selig is making a mockery of the rule book used for more than a century, in my opinion. The tug of war between the union and ownership is the primary concern for him. The game is getting lost.

The most recent chapter in the baseball steroid scandal has produced a rare flat denial. David Ortiz has told us he did not take steroids. Do you believe him?
There can be no dispute that baseball players, indeed many of the famous ones, have taken steroids. Conceded it is news, but all media disclosures accomplish is the ruining of reputations.
Baseball survives -- and thrives -- because fans want to see quasi-mutant athletes slamming home runs from Baltimore to Brazil, provided that steroid use isn't thrown in their faces.
If there's still work to be done in cleaning up the sport, saying it's ancient history and blaming the messenger doesn't help.
Talk about a sports fanatic's wet dream. There I was in the Celts' locker room, free to talk to whomever I wanted.
There's been a lot of "teachable moments" in Beantown this week and the revelation that Ortiz's name is on a list of players that was meant to be confidential with anonymous testing shouldn't be wasted.
I've had it with the steroid controversy in baseball. It's time to take control. MLB and MLBPA can agree to end this dripping mess by disclosing the entire list of the players who tested positive.

The general public doesn't mourn the deaths of less-famous people who might have continued to also do great things if they hadn't left us before their time.

Why beat up on the mendacity of sports? Is the message from the sports media meant to be apocalyptic: the nation and its pastime have struck out for good?
Manny Ramirez is gone, suspended for 50 regular season games for testing positive for a banned substance, but should he be allowed to play in this year's All-Star Game?
Year after year of daily physical abuse leads to substance overuse which in turn can often lead to abuse and dependence.
I spoke to Michael O'Keeffe, author of the new book on Clemens, what he thinks will happen next to Roger, baseball, and the use of steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs in sports.
The slump is something that almost every ballplayer at every level has experienced in some form. David Ortiz is in a serious slump.
Being famous means being memorable, never forget. Big corporations want characters. Buzz is about who talks about whom. That will never change.
The sports writing fraternity has pronounced Ramirez guilty; but wait, not only "guilty", but guilty beyond question. (Barely mentioned were the 15 previous drug tests he had passed.)
Manny grabbed the headlines for a day. It drew solemn pledges from MLB officials to do whatever it takes to end the cheating. And just as quickly the Manny flap will blow over.
Even when we are finally back to thinking about baseball and not A-Rod's hip surgery or Manny's fertility drugs, the public scrutiny will continue.
Steroids provide the unpredictability that baseball so desperately needs. What could be more interesting than emotionally volatile man children with rock-like projectiles and bats?
