The MLB Idiots Changed Their Minds!!

From the Friday NY Times, unlike the Thursday article. Opposite, in fact. Here you go...

"Major League Baseball said earlier this week that the number of players who tested positive for amphetamines for the first time in 2008 would be made public in a report on its drug-testing program to be released in January. On Thursday, however, baseball said the number of positive amphetamine tests would not be included in the report.
Rob Manfred, baseball’s executive vice president for labor relations, said in a telephone interview Thursday that the commissioner’s office and the players union would withhold the number of positive amphetamine tests because, “under our program, first-time positive tests for amphetamines are treated as confidential, and because of that, those numbers will be kept private.”
Baseball officials said a misunderstanding in their office regarding the drug-testing policy led to the conflicting reports.
“The report will detail the number of tests conducted this year, the number of positives for steroids, the names of the substances players tested positive for and the number of therapeutic-use exemptions but will not include the total number of amphetamine positives,” Manfred said."
