Thats why God invented things like the remote control.

It'll be critical for Arod to pad his stats and get another MVP on a non-playoff team.

ESPN is saying that Rodney Harrison is going to get suspended for 4 games for obtaining HGH. At least we know it won't effect his chances of being selected to the Pro Bowl.

Too bad it's not baseball, he could just say I'm sorry and do some charity work [/Giambi]

giambi was never caught under baseball's drug testing policy

reality is baseball's penalties for testing positive are actually tougher than the NFL's

50 games for a first offense in baseball = 31% of the season
4 games for a violation in football = 25% of the season and a trip to the pro bowl

You're right (re: tougher penalties in MLB)...I always kind of thought it was funny that nobody seemed to care about PED's in the NFL. But it's fun to take swipes at Giambi...and I'm a little pissy about Harrison getting suspended on top of Seymour missing at least 6 weeks

baseball is the golden sport from sportswriters and old time sport fans... it will always be criticized more for the same things that other sports do.

performance enhancing drugs are used just as much in other sports, if not more, and mostly with less harsh penalties as baseball has... but, to put it this way...

very few people know how many yards rushed emitt smith had, or how many yards thrown dan marino had without looking the numbers up...

everyone knows how many homeruns hank aaron had.

baseball records seem to last longer. emmit broke walter paton's rushing record less than a decade after it was set.

aaron's record lasted over 30 years.

brett farve will (probably) break marion's td record before mid-season.

how long did roger maris' single season hr record stand?

baseball hsa plenty of records that may never be broken.

To wit, most sports fans know that Ted Williams was the last to hit over .400 (and most know it was .406), most know Dimaggio had a 56 game hit streak (and many know Pete Rose came closest at 44 in pursuit of it), and most know in addition to Hank's 755, Babe's 714.
Of course it can be aruge that these numbers are easier to remember than larger numbers like yardage in football, but baseball is a game about individual statistics much moreso than football, so these numbers stick with us.
