MLB Week in Review (August 2-8)

The MLB will go through a major transition heading into next year as the long-time commissioner of baseball will step down from his post. A former owner of the Milwaukee Brewers Selig became the commissioner under some controversy. Fay Vincent became the commissioner in 1989 and oversaw a tumultuous times in the league. When he blamed the owners for stalled labour negotiations because of collusion the owners struck back forming a group that attempted to forcefully remove Vincent as the commissioner.

2013 Year in Review (This Year’s Top Stories)

2013 was not a sports powerhouse year as there were no major events throughout the year but that wouldn’t stop the stories from coming. There was plenty to talk about this year despite the lack of major world events. It was a year of great surprises but one aspect of the year took over the rest. 2013 was not the most positive year for sports as heroes fell almost monthly in a year that was not great for those who support the merits of sports and sports figures.

MLB Week in Review (August 3-9)

The MLB Week in Review has been full of Biogenesis information in the last few weeks and the last thing I wanted to keep harping on was the scandal. There really is no bigger story than the scandal though and this week it reached what might be its peak. There is no real need to explain what the scandal is all about as it has been harped on multiple times. Essentially an “Anti-Aging” clinic lead by Tony Bosch named Biogenesis would supply steroids to multiple athletes.

MLB Week in Review (July 27-August 2)

This past week the tradition would continue as fans flocked to Cooperstown to see the legends that created the MLB. The Baseball Hall of Fame is a celebration of what the MLB treasures most, their history. It is a place where the best and worst of the league are displayed, still waiting for the steroid era display, for all to find out how the league became what it is today.

MLB Week in Review (July 20-26)

The story will not go away and it does not seem to be slowing down as Biogenesis may be talked about for years to come. As was mentioned in previous posts the MLB has started to focus on another massive scandal in baseball. It started in the offseason when the Florida based Anti-Aging clinic, Biogenesis, went bankrupt and reports began to come out that they were providing PEDs while they were in business.

MLB Week in Review (July 6-12)

A few weeks ago The Sport Addiction would post a MLB Week in Review about Biogenesis and the hunt for cheaters that the MLB was undertaking. The MLB was looking at Biogenesis, an anti-aging clinic in Florida that had reportedly sold steroids to a number of players in the MLB. Major League Baseball would spend the majority of the offseason downplaying the comments of Anthony Bosch, the former owner of Biogenesis.

MLB Week in Review (June 1-7)

The MLB was happy to move on to a new era after the 1990s and early 2000s as they had just gone through one of the toughest parts of their history. The steroid era was unprecedented in the MLB as no league had dealt with the issue on a scale like baseball. It was a time were steroids became the major conversation throughout the sports world and the MLB was the centre of the controversy.
