    Norings take on steriod testing

    interesting article


    FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Here's what Nomar Garciaparra plans to do when Major League Baseball makes a surprise visit to test him for illegal steroids.

    "The day I'm getting tested, I'm going to call my doctor and say, `Guess what, you're going to test me, too, and we're going to send my results [to MLB] just to make sure,' " he said yesterday as the steroid controversy roiled. "I have to have a backup in case something happens. Maybe I'll even get blood taken out because it's more accurate than urine."

    sounds like nomah has some interesting points, most of which i agree with; let the players get it done by mlb and their own doctors, but i do disagree with the last statement, every ball player should be tested, not the final week of spring training, not at the all star break but every 3 months, but that's just me.

    I wouldn't have guessed that false positives were that big of a risk. While I may be wrong, Nomar and/or the writer do nothing to convince me otherwise. Additionally, the Balco guys have nothing to do with false positives.

    To be honest, for me, the article sounds like a "let's throw everything against the wall and see what sticks" defense. For now I will blame the writer.
