Minors to test for HGH immediately
By: DJ Bean

A major foot has dropped in the attempt to clean up professional sports, as MLB commissioner Bud Selig announced Thursday that testing for human growth hormone is to begin immediately in the minor leagues. 


Blood testing for HGH does not exist in the majors, but Selig was able to implement it in the minors because most of the players in farm systems are not yet in the MLBPA. 


The players' association would have to approve any plans of Selig's to test for HGH in the majors. Currently no other professional league in North America conducts the blood testing.

Olney: Brewers' Hart 'good fit' for Sox

ESPN baseball writer Buster Olney was a guest of the Dennis & Callahan show Thursday morning to talk about possible trade deadline moves around the league.


"Corey Hart might be a good fit for the Red Sox," Olney said, speculating that the Sox could have interest in the Brewers outfielder.
