There is a lot of sentiment in the hot stove thread that the steroid issue should have a thread of its own. Its a valid point since the hot stove is mainly about which free agents are signing with whom, and given that there was a seperate thread for the discussion of the Pistons/Pacers brawl. I used the word "scandal" to describe what is going on, but honestly I am not all that surprised, in fact most of us knew that this was coming for the better part of a couple of years now. Of course Jason Geombi has already admitted to it, and Barry Bonds is the biggest target of interest, but it will be interesting to see if anyone else is brought to the forefront. Where does baseball go from here? How do they punish the guilty once they are found guilty? What about the individual/s that are leaking the grand jury testimony which itself is a punishable crime. What happened this week I suspect is only the beginning.
