…. Amazing, but true

Jayson Stark has a nice long steroids column in which he takes a look at what, (if any) impact the steroids testing program has had on offense this season. Lo and behold, there has been none!

And, for the first time, a nationally syndicated columnist has come out and said what you have been reading here for months; maybe, just maybe, the steroids craze is all BS. Here's Stark:

Steroids were way too convenient a one-stop explanation for the dawn of the powerball era. Which would me

an this was clearly the most overblown story since Ted Williams' trip to the cryogenic freezer.

He also quotes Gene Orza, an anonymous player and an anonymous GM with essentially the same take. To be fair, the season has just reached the quarter-pole; and I'd guess that steroids' effects should be more evident in August, as normal wear and tear slows players down, the 'juice' would keep 'em going.

Nonetheless, the early returns lean towards vindication for OBM, one of the lone voices of reason during the frankly hysterical frenzy during spring training.
