BOSS WITH BIGGEST CHEATER in MLB WINS 'EXECUTIVE OF THE YEAR' IN BOSTON--Mark Shapiro

The Boston Herald story amazingly opens as follows: Mr. Massarotti, and why is that?
  • The team with the biggest cheater in baseball, Paul Byrd, hasn't been swamped with 24/7 vitriol on radio, tv, print, and internet? Why is that, do you think?
After all, he pitched in the 2007 post season in a deciding game.
  • His years-long drug use was not revealed, however until the day of a deciding game against a different team--fascinating how that timing worked out.
  • When questioned, Byrd would not deny using up to and including that moment, saying it was a "private matter." The next news we hear is:
Paul Byrd's boss, Mark Shapiro, HAS BEEN DEEMED A GENIUS AND IS NAMED 'EXECUTIVE OF THE YEAR' BY THE BOSTON BASEBALL WRITERS (BBWAA chapter).
  • Massarotti makes no mention in his Shapiro story of Paul Byrd or any drug problems of any kind. Just that Shapiro has a lower payroll.
From this recognition of Shapiro and its reporting, one is left with no choice but to see MLB and its writers still do not care about drug abuse. If it concerns the Cleveland Indians.
  • They still care very much about talking about payroll disparity. How lucky for the Cleveland Indians.
