Please make it stop

Steroids, posing a risk to the sanctity of the game, the sanctity of one's health, and now, apparently, the sanctity of one's mortal soul. The headlines from two separate stories running today:

Bishops see human frailty in baseball's steroids scandal;

and

Some baseball players sold their souls to the devil.

I was about to say that we've finally reached the end of our journey in the land of hysterical metaphor, but then I remembered that no one has trotted out pedophilia yet. It will come before spring training, however. Of this I have no doubt.
