Season Over For Palmeiro

Kudos to the Baltimore Orioles for benching Rafael Palmeiro for the rest of the season. Palmeiro, who famously wagged his finger at Congress in a hearing about steroid use in the sport, later tested positive and was suspended without pay.

I suspect the Orioles suspended Palmeiro to avoid the bad publicity he was drawing to the team rather than making an ethical statement. Let's hope that baseball teams will voice their collective disapproval by not signing Palmeiro in the off-season.
