The United States Government versus Major League Baseball

Citizen Ty linked to an ESPN article this morning talking about the millions of dollars and years of time spent trying to bring down Barry Bonds.

Do I want Congress to be Bud Selig's boss? No, but I think that baseball put itself in the situation where Congress is breathing down their neck. I don't want to speculate on the psychology of the government going after suspected PED users (because I'm not sure that someone from the government monitors what people write on blogs, among other reasons). There are other, more pressing issues facing the country today.

But I do think Congress/G-Men would never have been involved had MLB taken the lead on cleaning up its own sport.

Just want to give a shout out to the Government Blog Monitors and tell them to keep up the good work. You guys are awesome and really clean out the tubes on the interwebs fabulously. Download times are dropping like Stimulus on Americans!
