MLB Steps Up

Fans initial reaction may be, "Oh, no, not another baseball superstar." Or it may be, "Old story. I've already made up my mind about that issue. I don't need example #76."
But, after fans think about it -- especially baseball fans, who presumably want the game to come out of this healthy someday -- they may say, "The new testing-with-penalties program finally nailed somebody who actually matters, not small fry. And it got Manny of the Dodgers. Great player, popular player, powerful franchise. Maybe baseball's drug-testing, while not up to Olympic standards and not including HGH, is finally getting fairly serious and somewhat effective. Maybe the Manny Case pushes everybody -- labor and management -- a step further toward best-practices testing across the board."
Of course, if this were a linebacker in San Diego in the NFL, he'd just get a four-game suspension, make the Pro Bowl and everybody would shrug.
