    New MLB CBA will include HGH testing

    From ESPN.com:

     http://espn.go.com/mlb/story/_/id/7255517/new-major-league-baseball-cba-include-testing-hgh-according-sources

    Major League Baseball's new collective bargaining agreement will include blood testing for human growth hormone, sources confirmed to ESPN The Magazine's Buster Olney.

    A report in the New York Times, citing two league sources familiar with the deal, said testing would begin in February during spring training. According to the sources, the penalty for a positive HGH test will be the same as a positive steroid test -- a 50-game suspension.

    Took too long. Effective CBA must include standards based upon Olympic testing, regularly updated to include the latest PED technology

    I cannot for the life understand why the players and the Players Union would not want to adhere to the most strict of testing policies. If things are equal Pujols would still be the best offensive star in the league, and paid the same. Letting the cheaters cheat only makes a mockery of the game.

    It's called a j-o-k-e Steven. I think you try to be intentionally obtuse and thick, especially with things I post. Probably why I had you blocked back during the season. It just gets tiresome.

    If steroids are illegal, and supposedly, against the rules of baseball, I'm not getting the 50-day suspension thing for a positive test. Shouldn't you be charged with something, and out of baseball?

    As for HGH, it's cheating and a 50-day suspension just may be something players are willing to risk. After all, it's not like they can't play again. Ridiculous.
