Major League Baseball is flexing some muscle now about illegal steroid use amongst players. Commissioner Bud Selig is calling for much stiffer penalties (including league expulsion for a third offense) and MLB nailed its first semi-big steroid user, Twins relief pitcher Juan Rincon. It's good to see that pressure from Congress has pushed baseball to create serious penalties for illegal steroid usage.
I'd go a step further: first offense = one-season suspension; second offense = permanent expulsion. But, my tolerance for drug use - and especially drugs used to cheat, which have absolutely no merit or positive usage in today's sports - is virtually zero.
