Don't Eat The Food

I hope the Dodgers are making sure that the team doesn't enjoy the local cuisine when they visit China next month.
When an American caterer working for the U.S. Olympic Committee went to a supermarket in China last year, he encountered a piece of chicken - half of a breast - that measured 14 inches. "Enough to feed a family of eight," said the caterer

"We had it tested and it was so full of steroids that we never could have given it to athletes... They all would have tested positive."

In recent years, some foods in China have been found to be tainted with insecticides and illegal veterinary drugs, and the standards applied to meat there are lower than those in the United States, raising fears of food-borne illnesses.
Wow! Last thing we need is for every member of the Dodgers to test positive for steroids, or worse.
