Baseball, Steroids, and Porn

Bud Selig stopped by to chat with Don and Jerry during NESN's broadcast of last night's Sox game. We had visitors over, so the audio was down and I couldn't hear the commissioner's remarks, but that he offered a mewling non-answer to the appropriate question about Barry Bonds and steroids comes as no surprise. (You would think also that the commish could afford a better-fitting pair of pants.)

Non-surprise No. 2: Bill "the Spaceman" Lee has a very different take on the steroids issue (from the Nashua Telegraph via Boston.com's Eric Wilbur):

“Steroids?” Lee said. “I see that our cows in Vermont are being injected with too much BST . . . There are more drugs in our food supply than there are in Barry Bonds. A red herring. It’s wagging the dog, because we don’t want to address that the drug companies control our thing. And the fact that BALCO is the little guy, being squashed by Merck and Upjohn and all the big companies. As they say in Deep Throat, follow the money.”

I get the drift, Bill, but, er, isn't that All the President's Men?

Meanwhile, the Globe's Gordon Edes reveals that the ever-entertaining Julian Tavarez's backup plan as a youth involved becoming an adult movie star.

You see? It's all related.
