Quick programming note: I've written two pieces for The Faster Times about drug use in baseball.
First is about Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington, and the silliness of MLB requiring all personnel to be tested for drugs to...keep steroids out of the clubhouse. Read about the curious logic behind the tests.
Second piece is about Kansas City Royals catcher Jason Kendall. It's rare that a baseball player not named A-Rod gets the tabloid treatment, but gossip sites have been having a field day with his bitter divorce from wife Chantel. Read the piece to see why he's getting such coverage.
