BDD: Offense Up; Down with MLB’s Drug Policy

At Baseball Daily Digest, I point out that offense is on the rise once again in Major League Baseball, and that means that the drug policy has been a failure.

One thing is for sure: what we have right now isn’t working, no matter where you stand on the so-called issue. If you like ridding the sport of athletes who inject themselves with anabolic steroids, then you can’t like the fact that offense hasn’t been affected. If you dislike telling adult athletes what they can and can’t put in their bodies, then you can’t like the fact that has been no correlation between the tougher policies and a decrease in offensive production, yet the policies stay in tact with progress moving at glacial speed.
