Baseball made it look so easy. Can you even name the MLB players' union's executive director? Recall any players taking shots at Bud Selig on Twitter? The word "ultimatum" in a headline?

Vote and comment below!
A baseball sea change?
Baseball is getting serious about its crackdown on performance-enhancing drugs, but is it a big deal?
When to give?
Spring training and offseason blood testing for HGH has been agreed to, but in-season testing is still on the negotiating table.
