I would say that this is a “bombshell”, but it anything really a bombshell anymore when it comes to PED’s? It’s still just as it has always been. The users are still staying one step ahead of the testers. As long as they are able to, players will cheat to gain an advantage. If Larry “Bud” Selig was really serious about cleaning up the game, the penalties would be much stiffer. It’s about risk/reward. Players are not afraid of getting caught because the suspensions aren’t very severe. If a player has an opportunity to maximize their earnings, and make an extra $10-$15 by cheating and the risk is being suspended for 50 games the player is more likely to cheat. If that same player has to risk a lifetime ban for taking PED’s, I think they would think long and hard about that before subjecting themselves to doping.
