Dugout Digest – bupkis

Let's put a nice little bow on the Hall of Fame mess that transpired on Wednesday. No one was voted in by the writers, and Roger Clemens reacted like a teenage girl. There's been so much said by other writers (and much more eloquently than I could say it, too) about this fiasco, and it's not worth continuing to beat the drum about two days later. So, let's all just move on and look towards the 2013 season. We can worry about the Hall of Fame next winter.

In some news that came out yesterday that seems like a direct response to the PED-bashing portion of the BBWAA, MLB will begin random blood testing for HGH during the 2013 season. This is a pretty substantial step forward for the league, which has seen its drug policy grow by leaps and bounds in the decade since it was introduced.

Also, we discovered the awesomeness of Sammy Sosa's Pinterest page, lamented Jonathan Singleton's 50 game suspension for marijuana usage, wondered just what the hell an interview cap is, and broke down some New Years Resolutions across the league.

Today, we'll have a piece coming about Justin Upton declining a trade to the Mariners and just where the Diamondbacks go from here, and who knows what else as the day rolls along.

Enjoy your offseason, everyone.
