Juiced Ball gets tested

[New York Times]

Commissioner Bud Selig has taken notice of the nearly 25 percent increase in home runs in the first month of the season. And he was curious enough about the jump to ask that Major League Baseball test the baseballs, he disclosed yesterday during an annual meeting with newspaper sports editors in Manhattan.
The results of the tests have not been revealed, but again I wonder why it took so long. It's been two plus weeks of Juiced Ball talks to finally get some action. It's not like Selig needed a court injunction or something to see action. All he had to do was take a shipment of balls and run them through a test. Seems simple.

Oh, and we all know these balls are going to come back as "normal," and that won't chance any of the tin-foil hats' opinions.
