Alex Rodriguez, a former Seattle Mariners shortstop, was suspended by Major League Baseball today for using performance-enhancing drugs. Patch file photo
John Simpson August 5, 2013 at 05:42 pm
Former Major League Baseball commissioner Bart Giamatii used to say that the rules of the game ofRead More baseball are inviolable, that without rules the game becomes mere entertainment and ceases to be a true athletic contest. Rodriquez and the dozen other players who were suspended today knew the rules but went ahead and broke them. The punishment they received is not enough. If a player is caught gambling he is permanently expelled from the game. The same standard should be applied to those who use drugs as well. Major League Baseball missed an opportunity today to send a clear message that the rules in baseball are inviolable, and that the game is about athleticism and not chemistry.

I'm with you Brent, except in one respect. Perhaps the Sonics would have stayed in Seattle ifRead More leadership, both Wasington State and Seattle, had generated a committed vision for a stadium. At the time, our local capacity for action was nil. Sacramento, today, has generated a serious, committed effort in an incredibly short time led by a mayor. Imagine that! So, noting that distinction, Howard, David, and even Clay, are kind of absolved. The threshold criterion in Stern's mind is the will to act on an arena. In that sense, he appears consistent. As for Howard, on one hand he appears to have had his one great imaginative idea when he opened the latte site. Hansen, on the other hand, is a creative generator. I still think a team will emerge, if not now, relatively soon, say within two years.

I am so pleased and appreciative of this terrific group, led by our wonderfully focused ChrisRead More Hansen-you are keeping our hearts, souls, and dreams alive for our future NBA Basketball Team!! We will persevere! No fear-even if it is a few years off-this may be just a warm up for the final steps necessary to bring our Sonics Home!!! They are coming! One of your biggest fan and supporter!!

The only thing that makes people crazier than politics, religion or gun rights is professionalRead More sports. I suggest we invite the Sacramento patch users to join us to have a discussion on this topic. Might be fun to watch!

Congrats to Jim and King's. It always seems like a lot of successful high school football coaches inRead More the Northwest played at PLU for Frosty Westering. One of these days he'll win a road playoff game in Grays Harbor County and win a title.

How fun, Kim. Where are you going?

In California (unfortunately) Sep 14, 1990 against the Angels.

Griffey had a great career despite an injury plagued final 10 years but at the same there's noRead More evidence he used performing enhancing drugs which were so common during his era. In my mind there's no question that he should be voted into the Hall of Fame before Bonds, Clemens, McGwire, Sosa, Palmeiro, etc. even though some of his career and individual season stats aren't as good.

I agree it was sliding into home plate winning the playoff game over the Yankees in 1995! We wereRead More in center field and could see his smile under the pile without binoculars!
