In order for a player to undergo additional testing other than the random tests when his team is tested, the HPAC Committee would have to approve it. HPAC is a four-man group represented by the Players Association, MLB and one doctor from each side.One doctor "from each side"? Great. How about someone...I dunno, not bought and paid for?
Also, Joe Torre on Palmeiro:
"The doubt is there; that's the problem...Just from hearing his statement that he made a mistake...the only way you clear that up is to just let people in on what the mistake was."Exactly. Now apply that to Giambi's non-apology from just a few months ago. Now you'll see why I'll always be skeptical of that man.
