MLB is going to implement a mandatory steroid test since 5 % of players tested, had a positive test. this ought to take the HR #'s down a notch, be ready for good old fashioned baseball with stolen bases and stretching doubles into triples. i think it'll be good for MLB. anyway here's the link.

Interesting Aegis it seems to be stretching to all sports now..Over here in the UK it has been real hot with the new designer steroid and other drugs and they are really clamping down on it all..
As you say the homers may drop,im sure there is lots of them that take performance inhancing drugs...

I heard on the news that more than half of the players are on steroids.

i've got a couple guesses.
1. Barry Bonds
2. Sammy Sosa
3. Gary Shefield
4. the Giambi that plays for the Yankees (his first name escapes me)
5. Eric Gagne
6. and i'm gonna guess that there will be about 1/2 of mlb testing positive if the tests were given today.

I wouldn't be too sure about that they seem to be throwing the ball harder and faster,have they changed the ball over the years or they just getting better(maybe with some help lol)

While it IS nice that players are going to be tested, the consequences of testing positive are laughably pathetic.

I think testing positive once should result in a one season suspension without pay. Forget giving treatment, if the player wants to come back he'll find his own.

A second time should result in multiyear or permanent ban.

being caught at all should cause the player to be stripped of any awards he has won in the past.

As the policy stands right now, it is an embarassment to Major League Baseball.
