so what happened to those 7% of the baseball guys who tested positive?

Not a thing. We don’t even know who did test positive. The testing was done not in the interest of punishing the cheaters but in the interest of determining how significant the issue was. If certain percentages (I don’t remember the numbers) were reached, then a system would be put in place to suspend those who tested positive in the future. If they weren’t reached, the problem would be deemed not significant enough to worry about because apparently having just a few cheaters isn’t a problem, it’s only a problem if you have a lot of cheaters. What a great message they are sending to kids who look up to these guys.

It must be nice (for the players at least) to have such a powerful players union.
