If you did, you might have seen Bill Conlin’s article. He reins in on the steroid controversy and talks about a clubhouse shield: “What you see here, what you hear here, let it stay here.” Presumably, this assumed code will never allow the full truth to be exposed. But I wonder if he purposely gave examples of Phillies encounters with the substances as a way for the fourth estate to shed some light on the shield’s shadow. He seems to chastize Tom Bosewell for writing down the contents of Lefty’s locker; but ironically Conlin commits the same sin. On a related note, Canseco, Schilling, and Selig and the only ones willing to testify on Thursday. The rest have requested their subpeonas be withdrawn. Check out Thursday’s Hearing Agenda or the House’s letter to MLB attorneys. I’ll report back, if it’s open to the public. If any one else is planning to go, let me know – we’re planning a tailgate party next door at my house.
