Baseball Supermen Conquer the World

Evidently it's time to add Raphael Palmeiro to the ever-growing list of baseball stars with asterisks next to their names in the record books.

It's a bit shocking for a star of Palmeiro's caliber to get caught in a year when scrutiny of the sport is at an all-time high. What could he be thinking? It's rather depressing to see a star that you've enjoyed watching since he first came up to the Big Leagues resort to this:
In a prepared statement, Palmeiro said he could not explain how the steroids got into his body. "I have never intentionally used steroids. Never. Ever. Period," he said. "Ultimately, although I never intentionally put a banned substance into my body, the independent arbitrator ruled that I had to be suspended under the terms of the program."
Sure, Raffy. Just like Cookie Monster in rehab on a recent episode of The Family Guy, trying to convince the rehab staff that "those cookies aren't mine!!!". I want to believe you, but it's not an easy thing to do these days.

Guess it's time to find a DVD of old Ryno highlights. Note to all aspiring MLB players: listen to what Ryno says, and take it to heart. Congratulations Ryne Sandberg on your induction into the Hall of Fame!
