Hey Gordon, love the chats. In his almost-daily blog on ESPN, Buster Olney has set up a PED-free zone at the top of the page and the PED zone at the bottom. I don't know how much say you get in the Globe's editorial decisions, but any chance you guys could do the same around here? I for one want to read about baseball and spring training, not some drama involving a box of 8 year old bloody needles.

You're kidding? Someone out there doesn't want to read all these PED stories? Rather read about HRs and RBI?
A: Tommy, I get as much say in Globe editorial decisions as Joe Cochran, the veteran Sox equipment manager, gets when Terry Francona makes out his lineup card. But while we clearly have an obligation to cover stories related to steroids and other performance-enhancing substances, there is little question that we will continue to feed you a steady diet of stories pertaining to what is happening on the field, and about the personalities who play the game.
OK, fine. We are now officially pouting.
