These guys are heroes, IMO.  Although BALCO doesn’t have the same implications as something like Watergate, it is still worth the investigation for no other reason than the public health issue.  And, like Watergate, without investigative journalism and confidential sources, everything would be covered up and nothing would change.  Baseball (as well as other sports) has now had over a decade to fix the steroid problem, with no result.  If these journalists didn’t publish this testimony, there’s no way that it would have ever seen the light of day.

I find it sad that a waste of oxygen like Victor Conte gets 4 months in prison, and these guys get 18 months for doing the right thing.
