Welcome to the club

After watching the wall-to-wall coverage of the breaking news of David Ortiz and Manny Ramirez testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs in 2003, I had to just sit back and laugh.

Not because baseball has been dealt yet another black eye. But rather because of the coverage it received my the majority of the national media on TV and the blogosphere.

When the heavily-Yankee laden Mitchell report came out a couple of years ago and when Alex Rodriguez was caught testing positive for PEDs in 2003, most of what was insinuated was that this problem was a Yankee problem. And most took great delight in shouting from the rooftop that the Yankee championships in the late 1990s are now tainted.

With Manny and Big Popi now on that list with A-Rod, all I've heard over the last day is how steroids were a baseball --wide problem.

No, really? (Sarcasm intended)

I said this before and I'll say it again -- if you think your favorite team does not or did not have players using PEDs you are naive. And, no, I don't think any championships are tainted by this. Unfortunately, it's just the baseball world we live in these days.

I guess it took a couple of big names not associated with the Yankees who tested positive for this for the pundits to come off their high horses.
