If you ever wanted to release a story that no one saw, this last weekend was it. Baseball took all the headlines and bylines for two straight days. Barry’s 755th, Tom Glavine getting his 300th win, and Alex Rodriguez being the youngest player to reach 500 home runs.
After the news the commentary, where cycling tends to receive coverage, also took these three stories to press. Is Barry’s record legit? Will Glavine be the last 300 game winner? Will Alex knock Barry off the top so we don’t have the have this argument anymore?
If you were on the USADA and wanted to put out a story that would allow you some time to get out of Dodge, this was the weekend. But as we already know, nothing.
