Revisiting: ADHD among MLB players

Rob Neyer has some comments on a story that MLB has approved 108 therapeutic-use exemptions to Major League players for ADHD.

This is up two exemptions from last season.

Now, back on January 10 we took a brief look at drugs used to treat ADHD, such as Adderall, which is apparently an epidemic on college campuses during Finals Week (I made it through finals on Kamel Reds, which I no longer use, and Red Stripe, which I do.) What do these college pups call Adderall? "Scholastic Steroids." Huh.
