SENSE AND SENSIBILITY

Posted By Alex Belth On November 26, 2003 @ 1:14 pm In Bronx Banter | Comments Disabled

The mainstream media has been nothing less than shrill in their coverage of performance-enhancing drugs in sports, especially baseball [1]. Lisa Olson [2] adds her two-cents today with a piece on Barry Bonds’ personal trainer and Jere Longman has a cautionary tale about steroids and a Texas teenager in the New York Times. For a more measured and clear-headed take, check out Rob Neyer’s [3] latest, as well as a lengthy, and exceedingly well-researched piece by Dayn Perry [4] (thanks to Mike Emeigh at Baseball Primer’s Clutch Hits [5] for the link). Perry’s article is almost a year old, but it still holds up and should be required reading for anyone interested in the steroid issue.
