This may sound strange coming from a guy who is about to suspend several players for violating his league's substance abuse policy, but Bud Selig thinks that baseball is cleaner than ever. If you compare the 2013 game to, say, 1955 or 1877, Selig's comparison probably falls short, but it's definitely a different league than the one that saw Roger Maris' record broken a bunch of times in quick succession. Or is it?
Clean or dirty?
Alex Rodriguez is one of several players who could face lengthy suspensions for PED use, but is his just one of a few cases?
PED usage has brought up issues of legitimacy and fairness over the years, but is it really that much different than, say, wearing contact lenses, or training with legal supplements?
Younger fans can scarcely remember a time when Bud Selig wasn't baseball's commissioner -- he's been occasionally controversial, but his longevity is undeniable.
