In its game story lead, the newspaper took a cheap shot at Washington, who admitted earlier to taking recreational drugs once and getting caught with a drug test.
Later in the story, it says, Washington, who failed a drug test for cocaine last season, only could watch helplessly as his Rangers hitters flailed and dove while Sabathia's pitches danced around the strike zone.
I would have left Washington's drug history out of this. This story should be about baseball.
