Major League Baseball Steroid Testing Policy

This article from the New York Times is so hilarious as Major League Baseball touts their drug testing policy as one of the toughest in sports.

I wonder if they have considered looking into the policies and procedures of international cycling.

    "Advance notice of only a few hours could provide the opportunity for players to … use a device that allows them to fill their bladders with drug-free urine."

    Ewwwwww.

    And I like this part: "Baseball has increasingly toughened the penalties for violators." Relief pitcher Juan Salas was suspended for 50 games, he lost a third of his $380,000 salary and his team released a statement that they "will do all we can to help Juan get his career headed back on a positive course." In cycling, the team statement is usually "You're FIRED!"
