MLB Network Does Not Shy Away From PED Scandals, Other Issues That Impact League
Published February 8, 2013
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. The broadcast went on to discuss the Miami Biogenesis Clinic and the players linked to it and PED use. 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).
