MLB has ramped up its drug testing this offseason, and it seems as though they're really getting on players' nerves.
One player to be subjected to the intense and overbearing scrutiny of the tests is Boston Red Sox southpaw David Price, who voiced his displeasure with being tested for the third time this offseason. Three times. Really?
It's easy to see why he's so upset. Not only is this something he's already done multiple times over the past few months, but it's also disrupting his leisure time. Nobody wants to have someone in their house waiting for them to give a urine sample when football is on.
And it doesn't help that Price has been drug tested at decidedly not random times in the past.
While it's all fine and good that the league wants to keep the game free of performance enhancing drugs and substance abuse, there simply must be a better way for them to go about things.
The point, of course, is for them to be random and unexpected so that way results can't be falsified.
However, the tests have become incredibly intrusive and are disrupting the day-to-day workings of players' lives. It should come as no surprise that there's growing frustration among the players, especially from veterans of the game like Price.
