Selig insists `This sport is cleaner than ever'

NEW YORK (AP) -- Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig insists "this sport is cleaner than it's ever been."

Selig declined to detail timing for decisions on the sport's investigation of the closed anti-aging clinic Biogenesis, accused of distributing performing-enhancing drugs. MLB could attempt to discipline former MVPs Alex Rodriguez and Ryan Braun along with other players.

Speaking Monday during a question-and-answer session arranged by Politico, Selig defended baseball's drug-testing program, which began for the 2003 season.

"People say, `Well, you were slow to react.' We were not slow to react," he said. "In fact, I heard that this morning, and it aggravated me all over again."
