You`re so slick, honey, know every trick now. You know I want it, I want it so bad. You know I need it, I can`t believe it. So come on baby, please relieve it. -J Geils Band
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! Ok, ok, I’m over the hurt. Big Papi was dirty. I get it. I don’t like it, but I get it. What I also get is that there some rat bastard out there releasing these names one by one. Niagara Falls! Slowly I turn. Inch by inch. Step by step. Some rat bastard has let out seven names. Why not let them all out? Ozzie Guillen said, “Can somebody in baseball, please get that stupid list out and move on.” Ozzie Guillen said, “This is ridiculous. This is embarrassing. This is a joke. Whoever is there is there, get them out and that’s it.” Ozzie Guillen got it right.
I know the Players Association is ardently against releasing the names. I know the Players Association was supposed to destroy the tests. I know the tests are supposed to be under court seal and the union has said time and again it would fight to maintain that legal privacy. I know Jimmy Conway always says never rat on your friends and always keep your mouth shut. I know and I don’t care.
The only way to stop the bleeding is to release the list. The only way doubt can be erased about all the innocents is to release the list. The only way for this nonsense to end once and for all is to release the list. The only way baseball can move past this and truly begin to heal is to release the list. The only way any closure can be brought to the subject is to release the list. MLB, I implore you, do like Oziie says. MLB, I implore you, get that stupid list out and move on. Do it now. Do it for the good of the game.
Peace out homies. Six two and Even!
