Peter Gammons' February 28th piece on espn.com ...
... starts out with McGwire and his androstenedione, moves on to Brian Downing and Ken Caminiti, then throws in this tidbit:One mid-'90s Oakland A's farmhand said privately they called their minor league culture "the laboratory."
Regardless of the value of any one of the many pieces of unattributed hearsay in this article, Gammons gives Selig too much benefit of the doubt in this article.
The truth is probably that Selig knew as much as Kevin Towers now admits he knew, and that like Towers, Selig turned a blind eye toward juiced-up sluggers who were passing Maris and Ruth and juicing attendance and TV ratings.
Take the poll.
