With all the recent news of steroid abuse in baseball, Congress has worried that the young fans of baseball will be tempted to try steroids, so they have argued that stiffer drug testing and stiffer penalties need to be in place in order to discourage steroid use at the professional level. For their part, Major League Baseball has disagreed to the required stiffer penalties and testing, citing the interference of Congress as a negative impact on younger fans.

Which of the following, if true, would best contribute to a partial explanation of Major League Baseball`s citing fans as a reason against testing above?

(A) The number of expansion teams in the next five years is the highest it has been for any five year period over the past fifty years.
(B) Congress has not shown any particularly strong desire to help Major League Baseball be successful.
(C) Major League Baseball has had little success getting Congress to back off using any other reasons.
(D) Some baseball players are on medications which interact dangerously with steroids.
(E) Major League Baseball has recently started youth outreach programs designed to increase positive interaction between young fans and players.

E)...when the steroid abuse is in the press, its like a rumor. but when test are initiated, the rumors seem to be true. thats why it would have a negative impact on the youth b/c they believe its true and this would influence the positive interaction b/w fans and players.

After using POE, I reached E the best.
I think that D slightly support the idea of the Congress, rather than the idea. of the Major League Baseball

Going with E on this one. The MLB feels that implementing the proposals from Congress will hurt its outreach program. And this will have a negative impact on younger fans who are reporetedly having positive interaction with the players.

OA is C!

OE:

Explanation:

Paradox: Why would MLB cite fans as a reason against the testing when Congress cites the fans as a reason for the testing?

Formulate an Answer to the Question
Formulate a resolution to the paradox (if possible).

Remember, the best answer provides a connection between the two sides of the paradox without changing or discounting either side.

(A) This addresses expansions teams which has nothing to do with the fans.

(B) This addresses the success of MLB, which is not mentioned in the argument as being something that needs to be explained.

(C) This could explain why MLB cites the fans.

(D) This confirms the paradox in that it gives a reason why both parties would want to have stiffer penalties.

(E) This could also explain why MLB cites the fans.

Identify differences in remaining choices

(C) This gives sufficient reason why MLB would cite a completely contradictory position to congress.

(E) This choice should be eliminated because it suggests that there is another reason MLB could cite aside from the one they did.

(C) remains.
