Saturday Lance Zierlein of the HOUSTON CHRONICLE wrote that since Houston Texans linebacker Brian Cushing has returned from his PEDs suspension, he’s not been able to recapture the level of play that made him the NFL’s first and only two-time 2009 NFL defensive rookie of the year.
Zierlein on Cushing’s first four games back with Houston:
Last Thursday ESPN and San Francisco Giants announcer Jon Miller appeared on KNBR-AM in San Francisco and said the Colorado Rockies may be manipulating the supply of humidor-stored baseballs at Coors Field to suit their needs in certain game situations.
More specifically, Miller inferred that the Rockies may be providing umpires with harder, humidor-free baseballs when […]
NEW YORK TIMES reporter Judy Battista has the scoop on why Brian Cushing had HCG in his system when he was busted for the substance by an NFL drug test last September:
Battista’s Tweet was in response to ESPN’s Adam Schefter reporting on Twitter.com that Cushing had previously tested positive for HCG.

John Hickey of AOL Fanhouse has an update on the reception Mark McGwire is getting from his MLB peers.
Justin Morneau, Twins. Jonny Gomes, Reds. Carlos Gomez, Brewers.

The Milwaukee Brewers announced today that a statue of Bud Selig is being cast and will be unveiled at Miller Park in August.
Whose idea was it? Tom Haudricourt of the MILWAUKEE JOURNAL-SENTINEL gives us a clue.
Peter Gammons is a treasure. Love watching and listening to him. No one knows or cares more about baseball.
(ARod gave steroid confession to Gammons last February)
But something he wrote today @ MLB.com about the ongoing media and fan treatment of Mark McGwire disturbed me a little.
Clearly the baseball public is different than the public […]
Thanks to a new government memo that links Michael Vick to steroids, the DALLAS MORNING NEWS today published allegations from convicted Dallas drug dealer David Jacobs that he supplied Vick with steroids.
(David Jacobs said he supplied Vick with steroids)
The Dallas outlet did not publish Jacobs’ claim until TheSmokingGun.com obtained a government investigation memo that […]
ESPN’s T.J. Quinn has comments today from a drug dealer who the FBI has long claimed provided steroids to Mark McGwire.
On Thursday, Curtis Wenzlaff confirmed what had been reported and confirmed by FBI sources and documents nearly five years earlier — that he supplied the drugs to (Jose) Canseco and (Mark) McGwire and he […]
The walls may be closing in on Mark McGwire. Earlier today, the Busch family ripped into the former Cardinals first baseman. Statement from Adolphus A. Busch IV:
The highly orchestrated apology by and on behalf of Mark McGwire has reached a point that tests one’s tolerance. I suspect I am not alone in my disappointment at […]
