Obama 'depressed' re: Arod

The President gives his take:

If you're a fan of Major League Baseball, I think it -- it tarnishes an entire era, to some degree. And it's unfortunate, because I think there are a lot of ballplayers who played it straight. And, you know, the thing I'm probably most concerned about is the message it sends to our kids.

I don't have kids, but to those who do: is this a real problem, or is it more a made-up political issue?


- Roy Oswalt is downright pissed:

The few times we played them, when he got hits, it could have cost me a game. It could have cost me money in my contract. He cheated me out of the game and I take it personally, because I’ve never done [PEDs], haven’t done it, and they’re cheating me out of the game.

Ummm... Roy, do you realize you played with Roger Clemens, Andy Pettitte and (currently) Miguel Tejada?
