The PED issue is only a small part of the story. We've known for some time that there would be medical break-throughs that create tough decisions for MLB or for all sports. Imagine if Colon's procedure involved a prosthesis? If HGH were involved in the procedure, there is a whole other degree of wrong-doing, but right now the crime in my mind is the coverup of the procedure.
Think about it - nobody is suggesting that this procedure is irrelevant to Colon's success. It's not like he rehabbed and got himself into terrific shape. So if you are a Colon supporter at this point, and believe there was no wrong-doing on his part, then you see the procedure as a medical break-through.
OK. How likely is it that Colon takes part in a medical break-through where the Doctor, instead of using his Miami facility where the procedure was developed and would be detailed in Colon's medical history, makes a house call to Dominican Republic (not exactly Sweden when it comes to technology). And once this medical break-through has completed, rather than holding a news conference and shouting to the world how amazing the break-through really is, it completely slips his mind when disclosing his medical history to the Yankees.
PEDs are a very small part of the story, and it's a story you can't tell in any plausible way without seeing the dirt on Colon's fingers.
