Before you look, guess which year it was. I am somewhat embarrassed to have been a couple of years off.
Major League Baseball issues a statement about the A-Rod therapeutic use exemptions. But questions remain.
Jul 2, 2014, 3:48 PM EDT
“Everything has been great since 2008,” the statement basically says. But what about when A-Rod got the therapeutic use exemption for testosterone in 2007?
A-Rod received therapeutic use exemptions for testosterone for several seasons before Biogenesis hit

Baseball brought the hammer down on A-Rod for taking testosterone and other PEDs. But baseball allowed A-Rod to use testosterone and other PEDs for several seasons before he turned to Tony Bosch.

And the Daily News decides to start a pissing match with me.

Derek Jeter is very, very sure he doesn’t want to become a manager.

Baseball is on pace for more shutouts this year than any season in the history of the game. But the problem isn’t the lack of scoring. It’s the lack of action.

The Biogenesis nightmare is a magnificent thought puzzle featuring slimy people from all walks of life. If you have a notebook handy, I’ll get you started and you can play along.

Florida investigators warned MLB not to purchase the stolen Biogenesis documents. MLB did it anyway.

I’m starting come around to this “history’s greatest monster” stuff.

Buster Olney pulls out his McCarthy mask and shakes his finger at Melky Cabrera
May 1, 2014, 4:30 PM EDT
MLB insisted all along that its investigators acted properly. Now it has fired the leadership of its investigative unit.

Albert Pujols hit a three-run shot to left field off Nationals starter Taylor Jordan in the top of the first inning and then crushed a two-run bomb to deep left-center off Jordan in the top of the fifth for the 499th and 500th home runs of his 14-year major league career on Tuesday night in Washington, D.C.

You probably know this, but the Kansas City Royals single season home run record is 36, and Steve Balboni set it almost 30 years ago.

Watch as Angels first baseman Albert Pujols moved to within two home runs of the big 500-homer milestone on Saturday afternoon against Tigers closer Joe Nathan …

Hey, cut me some slack. There has been no Puig news since yesterday and I’ve already taunted Phillies fans twice today. I gotta feed at least one of my obsessions every few hours.

Henry Aaron is NOT The Home Run King. That sounds like I’m going to follow with some rant about Barry Bonds breaking his record and how terrible that was … but I’m not. My thought here has nothing to do with that. Henry Aaron is not the Home Run King because that silly title would do nothing but diminish his greatness.

God, A-Rod, you can’t buy of subjects of drug investigations and purchase stolen documents! That’s bad! Oh, wait. That’s what Major League Baseball did.

Mark Teixeira suffered yet another injury.

We may not have Alex Rodriguez to kick around anymore, but we can settle for his nephew.
Mar 28, 2014, 4:44 PM EDT
In the wake of the Biogenesis scandal and Alex Rodriguez‘s subsequent 162-game suspension, Major League Baseball and many of its players have called for tougher drug testing and harsher suspensions for violations of baseball’s drug policy. They just got it. Major League Baseball and the MLBPA have announced that they have reached agreement on changes…

Yesterday I explained how misguided the New York Daily News was in painting A-Rod as a “deadbeat” for still having an outstanding balance on his legal bills. I explained how legal billing works and how unusual it is for anyone — person or corporation — to have settled a multi-million dollar legal bill scarcely a…
