No asterisks*

Bud Selig says that the players who used steroids and happened to break cherished records while doing so will not have asterisks put next to their "accomplishments" in baseball's record books. Apparently, it is not "fair to the players" that their tarnished records be noted as such with the use of an asterisk. So, let me get this straight. If you use steroids and break records - "hey, you're cool", but if you happen to break a record because MLB has lengthened the regular season from 154 games to 162 - "you didn't really break the record." Please tell me: how does this make any sense at all?

Also, apparently the same players that were "invited" to testify last week by members of the U.S. House of Representatives may now be subpoenaed and required to appear in front of the committee. These players are Jose Canseco (he's already RSVP'd), Mark McGwire, Jason Giambi, Sammy Sosa, Rafael Palmeiro, Frank Thomas, and Curt Schilling. Also, Selig, Don Fehr, Sandy Alderson, and Kevin Towers have been invited to testify. I'm all for this, I think the steroid stuff needs to be aired out in the public eye so those of us who love the game can get a plain view of who exactly was juicing, and who wasn't.

Thanks for the link to my site as well, Brett! I ran across yours and was quite impressed, so I had to link. We cheeseheads have to stick together. You also earned a link on a Twins site! Stick and Ball Guy was impressed with you and added you. He's relatively new and quite a decent fellow. Check him out if you get an opportunity.
