Among the things that ain't what they used to be: the shame and disgrace of being busted for steroids.

Exhibits C and C: Bartolo Colon and Melky Cabrera.

They're both back in baseball - although Colon has five games left on his suspension - and will be earning nice paychecks, without having to go the Hester Prynne route (look it up, you lazy kids!) where you wear your sins forever.

When baseball had work stoppages, minor-league players who crossed picket lines were marked forever as "scabs." But if you're a convicted juicer, hey, play ball.

Colon and Cabrera are doing fine. Cabrera, now a Toronto Blue Jay, is tearing up the Grapefruit League, .361 with power. If he carries that bat into the regular season, how long before Moose-Melk Men appear?
