MLB, Union Seem On Same Page With PED Issues; Weiner Talks Expanding Penalties
Published February 26, 2013
A BUNCH OF YES MEN? In N.Y., Bob Raissman writes YES Network on Sunday during its first Yankees game telecast of Spring Training “took a more conservative approach" when reporting Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez’ recent link to PEDs, as the TV coverage “took on a buttoned-up approach.” Jack Curry joined Michael Kay and Ken Singleton in the booth “to discuss story lines surrounding the Yankees," including the allegations in the Miami New Times around PED use by several players. Curry said, “Alex Rodriguez’s name was on that list.” He added that both Yankees Managing General Partner & co-Chair Hal Steinbrenner and GM Brian Cashman when asked about the allegations “had said the investigation was in MLB’s hands.” Curry: “So this all hovers over them (the Yankees) now. Since the first couple of days everyone has moved forward.” Raissman notes the YES crew “then moved on to other Yankees issues,” but they “should’ve stuck on the A-Rod thing longer to voice opinions” (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 2/26).
