MLB gettin’ in the “supplement” business

MLB to sell supplements

That’s what the headline read in the Edmonton Sun article.  I must admit I did a double-take.  Reading the article didn’t help. 

“Major-league baseball teams will start selling approved supplements to players in an effort to prevent positive drug tests.

Management and the players’ association are having NSF International, a company based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, certify that products are clean. Once a supplement is certified, teams will buy the products and make them available for resale to players in the 30 major-league clubhouses.

“They do all of the auditing and testifying of the products and certify they are clean,” management lawyer Frank Coonelly said yesterday.”

So you can’t beat ’em, join ’em?  The article doesn’t specify what are approved supplements.
