Wrong Target Cal

I find it fascinating Cal Ripken is going to "make it his business" to find out what Alex Rodriguez’s motives were for using steroids.  After all, Ripken was a teammate of Rafael Palmeiro and as a lifetime Oriole, shouldn’t Cal concern himself with that?

It’s an odd comment coming from somebody who certainly had the standing to speak up years ago.  Can you imagine how different the steroids era would have ended up being if Ripken had stood up in 1998 and called foul on what was going on? 

I will give Ripken credit, he says the steroids era is a dark cloud that is "hanging and hanging" over baseball.  Are you listening Bud Selig?
