Reilly re-distributing baseball's MVP awards

    Sounds like a great idea, because it's clear that Reilly has personally drug tested all of baseball's MVPs of the steroids era, so he knows who's clean and who's not.

    I wonder, if he had written this column a year ago, how many MVP awards would he have given to A-Rod?

    My thoughts exactly -- I am glad he can say for certainity who is and who isn't clean and who deserves MVP's and who doesn't.

    What a self-important tool bag.

    How much does he get paid by ESPN?

    That article is awful.

    Didn't really enjoy the article either, but at least he (twice) acknowledges he's running the risk of looking stupid later.

    Dear Rick,

    Too bad they don't have sobriety tests before you can enter the LSU press box with your girlfriend and make a fool of yourself.

    I don't think I can read or listen to any baseball stats, awards or HoF talk for a while. Just tell me who wins the games.

    Maybe he is still drunk from the beer pong tournament?

    That was the last straw for me. That will be the last column I read of his.

    More useless drivel.

    Exactly, but that isn''t news regarding Reilly. I'll give him credit. He has been going after possible steroid users for a while. But his approach has been lousy.

    Of note to me is how willing he is to go after Bonds now, but when he wanted to ambush a player and suggest he should get tested in 2002, he chose Sosa instead even though Bonds was considered the more likely suspect at the time.

    Didn't he choose Sosa because Sosa offered to be tested anytime, any place and Reilly called him out on it.

    Not exactly. He said he would be the first guy in line if baseball started testing for steroids, but he made it clear during the confrontation that he had no interest in going against the player's association.

    Here is the column.
