In the words of the great philosopher, Feodor Chaliapin ...  "I'm Confused !!!"

I'm not a big baseball fan until maybe September after the US Tennis Open, but this year's Dodger's home streak has gotten my attention, so I have to ask the following:

If Manny had applied to MLB for a "medical dispensation" to take the medication prescribed by his physician then he would have been able to play, but because he didn't he is treated like a common criminal and suspended !!!  That's why I'm confused !!!

I'm not making a comment on steroids, etc. ... I have some very different ideas but now is not the time nor place for that discussion ... I just don't understand any of this !!!
