    But will anything happen to the players if they test positive?

      Won't happen. The Players Union won't allow it to.

          If the FDA makes steroids a banned substance, the MLBPA won't have a leg to stand on.

            I think ESPN said this on SportsCenter last nite: there's a rule in the MLB bylaws that states something to the effect if there's reasonable suspicion that a player is taking an illegal substance, they can test them.....

            I don't know if the MLBPA can get around it, but since they agreed to the CBA, I don't think they could w/out going to court...

              Yep.

              I think baseball is feeling the heat from the Feds. How else does that info get out?

                The only thing that matters here is if MLB will use a trainer sending roids to bonds as reasonable suspicion.

                I can Bud sweeping that under and giving him a pass, but hanging others like Giambi and Sosa and Sheff.

                I dont think Bud wants the fallout that would be Bonds and the roids cases

                  Wonder if standard contracts have prohibitions against performance enhancing drugs?...and if the players found to be using would be in breach?

                  Wondering what Steinbrenner's options are if the skinny Jason Giambi fails to produce?

                  The whole thing is about money...
