    throwing a question out to the board...even if true, why take that long, you have a guy allegedly(sp) pushing a story about failed tests, wouldn't you think that the league(along with the essentiall personnel) would know about said test results??... 

     




    i wiould imagine they get all their ducks in a row and make sure they have all the bases covered (especially after the Braun incident) which is why it takes so long after the initial positive test..

     

    also, i asked a similar question on the Braun matter.... let me see if i can find the thread.

    thanks mef..


     




     

    Looking around other sites, no one else has touched this story, pretty much being ignored and has been out there since early last evening.

    If it was credible it would have been picked up by ESPN or the MLB network.

    wouldn't this "technically" be # 2 for Braun...he wasn't exactly exonerated the first time around??... 


     




    That would be "double jeopardy" Jete...  would it not?  Can't be tried twice for the same crime.

    You would think if Cano saw it coming he would have jumped at the first offer from the Yankees.

    another article on the subject. nothing new, but it does confirm that all players involved would get a 50 game ban for a first time offense (braun included). and also looks at the effects it would have on the yankee roster.

    Texeria  was also just scratched from the WBC with an arm injury, no idea how serious it is.

    I don't know why everyone would be so surprised by Granderson. He's not a big guy and hits for a LOT of power. I'm less surprised by him than my Cano who has a seemingly natural build for his output.

    ehh....everytime Cano came up to bat I would say out loud.."Cano will beat you"...and he often did.  was it PED's?  Don't know, but if you are a Red Sox fan, you are silently hoping.

    granderson does not surprise me one bit, look at how his home run number have jumped up the past 2 years, 4 of his first 5 years as a full time player he had 24 or less homers per, his most on detroit was 30. He had 24 for the yanks in his first season there and then jumped up to 40+ the last 2 years. Cano does overly suprise me but given his build he should have good power. (mind you ryan sweeney is pretty big but cant hit a homer if his life depended on it) A-rod should be suspeneded more than 50 games, more like the whole season. Braun should be more than 50 as well, but since he wasnt technically caught last time, technically this is his first offence.

    i agree, i am less surprised about seeing Granderson on there than i am about seeing Cano. If this does turn out to be true then he will be wishing he accepted that 200Mil offer the yanks gave him not too long ago...

    The Yankees are aging.

     

    Aging, and with bones brittle as plaster of paris.

    The article does cite the source as being a month ahead of the game with the Melky Cabrera suspension.

    Then again, I could also very easily write a blog and credit myself as being a month ahead with the Melky Cabrera suspension.  No points awarded for predicting the past.   Anyone follow that guy and see if his tweets were legit?

    the no surprise about cano comes from

    guilt by association  as much as  anything else

    he's from the DR, best friends w/ melky and both hung out with arod



    granderson on the other hand has /had a rep as one of the best people in the game

    true his HR spiked the last 2 yrs

    but so did his K's IMO a case could be made that

    he changed his swing towards going for the long ball 24/7

    but who knows

    Hank Aaron was 6' 180 lbs. Granderson is 6' 1" 195 lbs.

    Roger Maris was 6' 197 lbs.

    Granderson is not a small man.

    You assume he is, Geo, no more.  If you disagree, explain how you know he is clean.

    The comedy of the PED issue to me is the assumptions people make based on size, performance changes, where they played, etc.  Of course we can all see smoking guns, but sometimes people - Koufax? - suddenly figure it out.

    The tragedy to me is that while I don't assume cheating and never did, I don't assume innocence anymore...how can you?
