Calm Before the Storm

Not much happening this week. A few arbitration cases, a swirl of speculation about BALCO, the sound of equipment bags being loaded onto planes headed for Florida and Arizona.

With all the talk about steroids, I loved the following quote from Jason Schmidt re. his run-in with Felipe Alou after the playoff loss last year:

As for Schmidt and Alou, the pitcher said he no longer harbors ill feelings toward his skipper for giving the Game 4 start to Jerome Williams and suggesting to reporters that Schmidt did not want the ball because his elbow was hurt. "It was (four) months ago and testosterone was flowing at the end of the game there," he said.

Sigh. Remember the good old days, when having too much testosterone simply meant being a macho asshole, not a macho asshole dope fiend?
