If the MLB isn't already in shambles, the league has stopped testing players for steroids.

Juiced balls, botched negotiations, and now lack of PED testing, the MLB does it again! For the first time in 20 years, steroid use will be no longer tested (for now) in Major League Baseball. The testing pause is in part of the lockout and the "Work Stoppage Guide", the terms state that they cannot test during this period.

My gripe with this whole situation is that if this pause began December 2nd, a question I have is why the hell are Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Sammy Sosa, and Alex Rodriguez are not in the Hall of Fame?! A few short weeks ago, these group of historic players were denied entry into the Hall by pretentious writers. Obviously this is a stretch comment, but if the league isn't following the rules anymore, then what gives? I don't condone PED's, I am just stating the facts. The players who were caught using it, still tell the story of baseball. Again, Bud Selig, the commissioner who was aware of the steroids' era, was elected into the HOF, then these players should be too. The integrity of the sport is lost.

But I digress. Just classic MLB nonsense at this point. At this rate, the season is in jeopardy and Rob Manfred is killing "America's pastime". Very few have been caught with PED's recently, but it will be hard to predict if players will attempt to start using them until the new CBA is in place, but this will be a slippery slope if things are figured out soon. Way to go Robby!
