ONE EXAMPLE: MLB Network's Tom Verducci on Thursday noted Tigers SS Jhonny Peralta "is the latest big-leaguer with reported ties" to a Miami anti-aging/drug clinic.

MLB Network’s Larry Bowa noted the penalties handed out by MLB for PED usage "aren’t stiff enough." Bowa: "I thought the thing was cleaned up a little bit, and I still believe it’s working, but now this comes out. It’s a black eye for baseball again" ("MLB Tonight," MLB Network, 2/7).
