Reaction to Big Papi
I'd encourage any baseball fan to read this article about today's revelation that David Ortiz was one of 104 players to fail a survey drug test in 2003. It is written by espn.com columnist Howard Bryant, formerly of the Boston Globe, and in my estimation the best, most nuanced, most connected and informed baseball journalist on the topic of steroids in the majors. Read the article, and anything else you can find by Bryant. Whether it has to do with steroids or not. I recommend him because he's really good, and because he's one of my favorite baseball writers.
