Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig insists 'This sport is cleaner than ever'

Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig insists "this sport is cleaner than it's ever been."

Selig declined to detail timing for decisions on the sport's investigation of the closed anti-aging clinic Biogenesis, accused of distributing performing-enhancing drugs. MLB could attempt to discipline former MVPs Alex Rodriguez and Ryan Braun along with other players.

Speaking Monday during a question-and-answer session arranged by Politico, Selig defended baseball's drug-testing program, which began for the 2003 season.

"People say, 'Well, you were slow to react.' We were not slow to react," he said. "In fact, I heard that this morning, and it aggravated me all over again."
