Bud Selig says baseball is 'cleaner than ever'

Despite a recent investigation into Biogenesis, a Florida-based clinic accused of distributing performance-enhancing drugs to players, Major League Baseball commissioner Bud Selig proclaimed that the "sport is cleaner than it's ever been" on Monday.

Selig spoke to members of the media during a press conference ahead of the All-Star Game and insisted that baseball's drug-testing program is working. The program was implemented before the 2003 season after the league found rampant PED use among players.

"People say, 'Well, you were slow to react.' We were not slow to react," he said. "In fact, I heard that this morning, and it aggravated me all over again.

Several reports state that the league could suspend up to 20 players in connection to the ongoing Biogensis connection, including former MVPs Alex Rodriguez of the Yankees and Ryan Braun of the Brewers, arguably two of the game's most recognized stars.

Of course, this proclamation is coming from the same guy who also told reporters that he has never sent an e-mail, and "he never will."
