MLB New Steriod Policy

MLB and the players have agreed to a completely overhauled steroid policy. I would like to say that I am very happy that the Union agreed on much stricter policies for testing of the players. Under the new rules it is good to see that a first time offender can be suspended for up to 10 games, I just hope if a big time player comes up positive they suspend him for 10 games. Also there can be random testing throughout the season and the off-season. This hopefully will curtail the use of steroids in baseball and put some of the fans at ease. Also players that don’t use steroids now have more proof to back themselves up because in the new system if caught they will be suspended in the old system 1st time offenders got counseled and the public didn’t know about it. I know there always will be a way to beat the system, but as long as the system is not so easy to break, it is a plus for everyone involved.
