The veil over MLB is about to come off. The owner of a drug lab in Miami connected with several players, including Alex Rodriguez and Ryan Braun, is set to speak with MLB. Jayson Stark says it could be the biggest drug bust in sports history, with severe consequences for players and teams involved.
The interesting aspect is not the bust, but what will happen after. Fans already knew baseball players were taking something. Will things change because it's now out in the open? Or will baseball simply continue it's decline as a slow sport filled with cheaters that refuses to adapt to the times?

EVERYTHING I AM
The tax code and tax reform are a politician's go-to issue in most cases as it always seems worthy of fixing, one way or another. The IRS scandal is an example of why it actually does need reforming rather than just bashing. The new rules allowing social welfare groups the ability to hide donors caused over 3,000 new applications for a 501(c)(4) designation to come in. The ambiguous rules for determining whether those groups are political or not make it difficult to know who to accept.
Essentially, the whole "scandal" boils down to the IRS taking a shortcut knowing that many of the applicants were using the 501(c)(4) for political purposes when they weren't supposed to. They had more than double the applicants and they took the easy road.
