Alderson addressed issue of steroid use in baseballThe Mets’ new general manager, Sandy Alderson, who presided over the Oakland Athletics and G.M. in the late 1980s, recently addressed the issue of steroid use in baseball.

It is worthwhile to note that Alderson was interviewed by Congress and former Senator George Mitchell for a report on the subject after Jose Canseco wrote a book detailing his and teammate Mark McGwire’s use of performance enhancing drugs.

I wanted to enact drug testing at the time but was limited by California state law and the collective bargaining agreement with the players, says Alderson.
