As baseball management and players continue to reprise their roles of "Dumb and Dumber," it is the fans who are being played for the fools as the union allegedly agrees to steroid testing.
The players' union did not agree this week to random testing for steroids. They agreed to test to see if there is a problem with steroids. The plan calls for testing in 2003 and if 5% of the tests come back positive, there will be a follow-up survey in 2004. That means no firm action until at least 2005. And the proposal has no terms for penalties when players are found to be "on the juice."
