What The Dumb Hysteria Over A-Rod And PEDs Is Really About

deadspin.comAs you all know, Major League Baseball seems determined to prematurely end the career of one of the greatest players in the history of the sport. Given that the 211-game suspension provides chance both to attack the never-popular A-Rod and to join a PED witch hunt, it has the enthusiastic backing of a lot of the press. Bill Madden of the New York Daily News won the hysteria competition early, comparing one of the countless athletes to have used PEDs with a guy recently convicted of killing 11 people during the time in which he ran a massive racketeering enterprise. (If you combine this with A-Rod slapping the ball out of Arroyo’s glove, I think that makes him comparable to Ted Bundy. If he’s ever caught with a corked bat, he’d be worse than Hitler.)
