Stark article on cheating at ESPN

By Jason Wojciechowski on August 11, 2005 at 8:15 PM

Jayson Stark has penned one of the better articles about steroids I've seen from the mainstream media over at ESPN. It is, as usual for Stark, a bit unfocused, and it doesn't really answer any questions, but it certainly asks a few. Most importantly, "Why do we only seem to care about hitters who cheat?" and "Why do we only care about the sanctity of records? What about seasons and games and World Series results?"

I'm glad there's somebody at a major media outlet who's not just caught up in the "by God, he cheated, so boot his ass out!" hysteria.
