MLB to implement blood testing for HGH in minors
« Topic Start: February 24, 2010, 07:51:49 PM »
New York Times reported today that MLB is going to be implementing blood testing for HGH for all minor leaguers this year.  This will put pressure on the major leaguers' players union to either accept some similar program, or once again appear to be protecting the guilty at the expense of the innocent.

On Home Plate this morning... they were claiming that you can't pick up HGH with a blood test unless you do HGH within a day or two of testing.

They also claimed that the players would accept blood testing if they knew it was 100% accurate.
