This is the logical conclusion of allowing statistics and records determine how outraged we should be about PEDs:
South Korean baseball officials could introduce drastic
anti-doping protocols next year with a plan to target specific players
for drug tests.
The Korean Baseball Organisation (KBO) said players who showed marked
statistical improvement would be targeted in a clampdown on drug
cheats, South Korea’s Yonhap news agency reported on Wednesday . . . League officials said they would begin examining the new testing
procedures at the end of the season with players exceeding their career
averages set to be selected for testing.
We could call it the Norm Cash or the Zolio Versalles Rule.
For what it’s worth, I’m struck by the notion that the vast majority of PED users mentioned in the Mitchell Report and those caught by subsequent testing protocols kind of, you know, sucked. So I can’t see that such a testing procedure ever would have worked all that well here.
