'Roid redux

I wrote the following in August, but it bears repeating today in light of the Sen. George Mitchell's report on the use of performance-enhancing drugs by Major League Baseball players.

Here’s how to get steroids out of Major League Baseball, once and for all:

Tell the players -- all of them -- that they have to submit a urine sample every day of the season, and if they test positive for a banned substance even once, they’re done. Out of the game. Forever.

What could be simpler?

And if the players’ union objects, shut down the league. Forever. Having no baseball games at all would be far better than having games in which every accomplishment has become suspect.
