It's OK for a steroid user to become a coach in the NFL

Romanowski AP.pngFOX’s Jay Glazer reports that Mike Shanahan is interviewing Bill Romanowski to be the Redskins’ new strength and conditioning coach. I repeat: a man who took the “cream” and the “clear” just like Barry Bonds did is poised to be the STRENGTH and CONDITIONING coach for an NFL team.

In light of the bruising Mark McGwire has taken from FOX’s Ken Rosenthal and others, FOX’s Glazer will no doubt likewise demand that Romo not be given the job:

shanny at it
again: he’s interviewing Bill Romanowski for strength & cond coach.
while controvertial, who knows this stuff better than him?

I’m not a fan of the NFL, but at least NFL commentators aren’t deluded about the purity of the game they cover.

The Baltimore Orioles have claimed utilityman Jace Peterson off waivers from the Yankees.

Peterson has played in three games this season and has been DFA’d twice. He had no place to play in New York but perhaps the O’s can use his versatility. While mostly a second baseman in his career he’s appeared at every position except pitcher and catcher at some point along the way, and that’s useful. More useful for a team that isn’t going anyplace like Baltimore, I presume. Saves ’em on gas money from Norfolk when someone gets an owie.

To make room for Peterson the O’s moved Gabriel Ynoa, who is suffering from shoulder inflammation, from the 15-day to the 60-day disabled list. Ynoa has yet to appear in a game this season.
