WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. John McCain is lamenting the latest report of a baseball player linked to performance-enhancing drugs.
Last week the players' union confirmed that Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz was among the 104 major leaguers who tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs in 2003.
In response to the revelation, McCain sent a message on his Twitter account that read, "David Ortiz tested positive for steroids, 'where have you gone Joe DiMaggio?"'
McCain says the situation in baseball makes him sick. Even more
bothersome, he says, is the idea that someone in a laboratory somewhere is trying to develop a substance that tests can't detect.
The Arizona Republican spoke to CNN's "State of the Union" for its Sunday broadcast.
