We're talking baseball
From the Here We Go Again Department: Baseball has decided to once again take us down the path of irrelevancy and investigate steroid use from a few years ago. It is entirely symbolic and a colossal waste of time. The best reaction they can hope for if and when their findings are released is a big yawn from the fans. The fans have moved on and simply donít care about that any more. Truth be told, they didnít care much about it to begin with. Owners, players, fans, basically everyone, except maybe pitchers, liked when these guys were hitting 500ft home runs. OK, the partyís over. So why pursue this if your best case outcome is no reaction? Furthermore, why stop at this? Why not investigate every greaseball Gaylord Perry ever threw? Or every cut baseball Joe Niekro ever threw? Maybe you can add an asterisk to their strikeout totals. Maybe you could investigate every potential Hall-of-Famer that Ty Cobb mangled with his cleats sliding into second base or every grounder he ever bounced off of one of his own teamís glove for a base hit. There was no rule against leaving your gloves in the field after the side was retired then just as there was no rule against steroid use a few years ago. Free unsolicited and unwanted advice from CrabAppleLane for MLB: JUST LET THIS ONE DIE ALREADY

If they find out something that happened (a few years back), what difference is it going to make in today's game?
