Of course, Rafael Palmeiro isn't going to get in trouble for lying to Congress...because they couldn't find evidence that there were steroids in his system when he testified. And I'm sure that in the legalese, that is the appropriate decision.
But let's think about this for one second, shall we? Assuming his test was accurate -- and I think we have to do that -- this means one of two things. Either Palmeiro was lying about "never ever doing steroids," or he decided AFTER testifying to try steroids out for the first time, then immediately got busted. Which of these two things seems more likely?
I always thought he was a bit of a fraud - talented, to be sure - but never quite a superstar. And now he'll likely be the first guy to hit 500 HR with 3000 hits and not make the Hall of Fame. And...I'm okay with that.
RIF! Reading, It's Fundamental.
