Originally, this post was going to be kind of an open letter to MLB and Commissioner Bud Selig.
It would have been something like, "Dear MLB, please quit dragging this process out and just suspend Alex Rodriguez. Enough with the leaks to the press about suspensions to come. Enough with A-Rod coming up with more injuries to extend his stay on the disabled list. Put us all — fans, reporters, commentators, players, etc. — out of our misery and just get this over with so baseball can just move on."
Of course, I'd like to think I could've embellished that some and drawn it out into at least 800 words of snappy prose. And I'm sure I would've gotten right to that. But then the news of Ryan Braun's suspension for the rest of the season broke, and this whole story with the Biogenesis clinic, its connection to baseball and PEDs, and the players involved in the scandal suddenly became much bigger and far more serious.
Why more serious? Aren't rumo...
