|THE STEROID HEARING|
|For Matt Morris and the Cardinals, it was business as usual on Thursday.|
"I haven't kept up with (the hearings). I wanted to get my workout in."
-- Yankees first baseman Jason Giambi, who lifted weights instead of watching Thursday's hearings.
"I think now that everybody's had their say, to some degree, it sounds like everyone is spinning their wheels, just passing time. There's nothing coming out of this other than the attention, obviously."
"I think we're kind of jumping the gun a little bit on saying we should go to the extreme of the Olympic two-year ban. Obviously if they get caught a second time it's a lifetime ban. We're in an entertaining business. The Olympics are put up on a pedestal of purity."
"I hope what's not diminished is the perception of the skill it takes to hit a 95 mile-per-hour fastball or throw a no-hitter."
"I didn't have the TV on today. I don't know what's going to come out of it. Whether I watch it or I don't doesn't change what's happening there."
