His opinions on them, anyway.

"It's like McCarthyism or something. They're looking to see who looks like a communist," he said.

I think Dusty oughta shut up and go back to mismanaging his baseball team.

It can't take THAT much effort to screw up the Cubs like that, though. 'Sides, I'm more interested in Turk Wendell's (ajc.com) opinion on the subject. We're, like, contractually obligated to pull for him... he did go to my alma mater.

Well, that's not the only time his mouth has gotten him in trouble. What was it last year or two years ago....Blacks play better in the heat than white players or something?

He said that the Latinos from the Caribean played better, because they are used to the heat.

Anyhow, the part of the Barry Bonds interview that made me chuckle was this quote:
``You got something to say, you come to my face and say it and we'll deal with each other. Don't talk through the media like you're some tough guy.''

Ah Barry, this is my good friend Irony. Have the two of you met?

Well... Dusty's head HAS become bigger as he's gotten older. So maybe Wendell should point a finger at him, as well.

Dusty is right. Passing judgement on individuals without proof and guilt by association are hallmarks of the bygone era.

Sure, innocent until proven guilty. But, just like there was something to McCarthy's hunts (there really WERE communists, you know, even if McCarthy obscured that fact by being a jackass), there very likely ARE steroids in baseball; and I, for one, think it's a problem. Furthermore, baseball and issues of national security are two different things. It's like Warren Sapp (may he rot) comparing NFL officials to slave-owners. They're different situations; comparing pro sports to, well, real life, kind of belittles things like slavery, the loss of personal freedom, etc. It's like stubbing your toe, and then trying to commiserate with a double-amputee. "Oh man, I totally feel your pain... look at this hangnail!"

My biggest issue with 'roids is, I guess, one of personal guilt. I love baseball, and I love watching these guys play. I don't want to see someone like Bill Mueller (hypothetically) feel compelled to take a potentially life-threatening, testicle-shrinking drugs because he has to to be competitive. I hardly want a willingness to shorten one's life to be a pre-requisite to be a professional baseball player. Bad enough that it more or less is for football.

I'm stunned that the Cubs let a fired guy run their team through a) the trade deadline and b) the draft pick-signing deadline.
