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.

Sandy Alderson tapped with fixing Dominican baseballSandy Alderson, the new sheriff hired by baseball commissioner Bud Selig, for addressing the litany of problems presently plaguing one of the richest talent resources of the game had a rude awakening as soon as he took the job two months ago.

Alderson met with MLB team representatives at the Embajador Hotel in mid April and the conference was marred by a raucous protest by dozens of Dominican trainers organizing a rally outside the hotel.

A big majority of personnel, including one of the Prospect League founders, Ulises Cabrera, who rushed to greet Alderson, were not happy with the American interfering in the Dominican baseball business.
