A few days ago, Mike Vaccaro of the Post made the following comment on Twitter:
1 more on Hall/PED: I think we did way too little to find out what was happening in ’90s, seem way too hellbent on meting out justice now
I think that Vaccaro is right on the money, and a [...]
Mark Feinsand decided to parse A-Rod’s comments after last night’s 3 home run barrage in Kansas City:
Less than eight weeks ago, Alex Rodriguez tried to change the way people looked at him despite the fact that he was marching toward 600 career home runs.
“The columns I worry about are RBI and wins,” [...]

I have written about this topic a number of times, so I am just going to pull out what I wrote when A-Rod came clean and give it a bit of an update:
YesterdayToday we learned that A-Rod tested positive for anabolic steroids in 2003 Mark [...]
From Bruce Jenkins:
At the height of Barry Bonds’ pursuit of the home-run records, Duane Kuiper and Mike Krukow made lively, enthusiastic calls on the Giants’ network. They always loved Bonds as a ballplayer. They knew that whatever the extent of his plunge into steroids, it didn’t tarnish his reputation as one of the [...]
Late last week, I brought up Buster Olney’s article on A-Rod’s struggles and the possible link to steroids. In the comments, I noted the following:
There is no reason to assume Alex just went off steroids. Either he went off in 2003, or he is still on some undetectable stuff. Why not treat a [...]
Prior to a Yankees-Red Sox series, I typically click through the Boston tabloids to read what they are saying about the Yankees and the upcoming series. Gerry Callahan’s article caught my eye this morning, and I think that it is indicative of a huge difference between the media in New York and the writers [...]
When reading through Bob Klapisch’s article on yesterday’s stinker in Baltimore, I noticed one passage that made me consider the role of the media in creating an atmosphere of pressure for players in NY:
Sabathia is no dummy: He knows that with $163 million in his pocket, the old way of doing business no [...]
At some point yesterday, Alex Rodriguez made comments about the excitement that Jose Reyes brings to the playing field. Depending on which blog or newspaper you get your news from, you might have been treated to one of two fairly different stories.
Peter Abraham, Lohud Yankees Blog:
Alex Rodriguez told reporters in Jupiter today [...]
This is an issue that I have been harping upon for a while, and now I find out that Curt Schilling agrees with me. I feel a bit nauseous:
During the 2001 season, in the clubhouse, Pedro [Gomez] and I got into a shouting match about players and steroids. In the middle of [...]
Yesterday we learned that A-Rod tested positive for anabolic steroids in 2003. Today, the media vultures are out, picking at the bones of the player that they had previously trumpeted as the great clean hope. Buster Olney believes Alex to be tarnished forever, and luminaries such as John Kruk, Tom Verducci, and Bill Madden feel [...]
