This final note today, from the Marketplace Desk of a day late and a dollar short.

Nobody was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame yesterday, as you may have heard. It was an unusually closely watched ballot, because of the first-time presence of so many confirmed or rumored steroid users.

Never an organization to miss an opportunity, today Major League Baseball expanded its drug testing policy.

“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VA
