It's nice to see players, especially veteren players like John Smoltz, come out and say what everyone knows - that MLB steroid testing is a joke
. Smoltz talking:
"The more this becomes a monster, the more it plays into everybody's mind," Smoltz said after a spring training workout. "There's a way they should do tests. Do them the way they should be done -- not a platform that's just a smoke screen."
"This stuff did not just pop up out of nowhere," Smoltz said. "This controversy is not going to end until the studies and tests are done the right way."
"It's not good for the game. It's not good for the future of the game. It's not good for the kids who want to play this game," Smoltz said. "It sends the wrong message."
He's absolutely right, MLB *AND* the Players' Union need to get together FOR THE GOOD OF BASEBALL and get this ever increasing mess straightened out. The longer they wait, the larger the mess becomes, and the larger the negative impact that it's going to have on the game.
Maybe if more baseball players start speaking out on the subject, it will force Baseball into action. This can't be swept under the rug any longer - immediate action must be taken.
