Bill Simmons absolutely knocks it out of the park with this one. Perfectly captures my feelings regarding Manny’s suspension and the specter of PED abuse on the 2004 Red Sox. I desperately don’t want to care that players on that team used, but I can’t shake the feeling that they did, and that does not make me happy.
So as we all know, one name from a supposedly secret list of 104 baseball players who tested positive for steroids back in 2003 got out into the public. Naturally that name was Alex Rodriguez. Even more naturally people reacted with outsized histrionics (Big ups to Rochelle Riley by the way, going way outside the box on that one).
