Baseball drug scandal

It's the big news item right now, as dozens of top baseball players are implicated in a report.

Baseball has been slipping away from me due to the theocratic tendencies of some teams (and the Major League Baseball commission itself), and due to the teams no longer being made up of "hometown boys" (thanks to so many trades). Add a widespread steroids scandal, and the sport is probably tarnished beyond repair.

Time to start looking at Little League, Japanese, or even Cuban baseball, I guess.
