    disappointed in Cano if this is true - he is a great player - i wanted to believe it was just talent/skill...

    at least pedey is clean

     

    i watched a lot of baseball in my time - i always admired Cano for his play - i assume that players who get signed by the bigs and do well are hardworkign and talented...maybe not anymore...time will tell

    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?

    If this is true, and it's far from confirmed, Cano's contract  talks could get even more interesting.

    Believing the twitter account of a Met's fan with no credentials who had less than 150 followers before he spread the rumor is like believing the homeless person who's yelling that the world is going to end tomorrow.

     



    I think he is the same guy who broke the Melky story.  Seems to have nailed that one.  Still a rumor until it isn't, but he is not without credentials.

    not buying yet but

    cano should surprise no one

    granderson does surprise me a tad

    as much as anyone can be a surprise these days

    better it comes out now B4 either one gets a new contract

     




     

    The rumors were out there re:

    Cano because of his closeness to Arod and the kid from San Diego along with Melky, Arod's workout buddies.

    If it's true the timing couldn't be better (with Cano) unlike what happened after Arod stuck up the Yankees. Better to find out now than later.

    Hard to believe with Granderson, a player rep no less, but we'll see soon enough.



    Part of me would naturally liked to have stuck the NYY with a nice $175M/7 bill for tainted services.

    But the better part of me says that world is a better place if Cano doesn't get rewarded (assuming the rumors are true).

    It's definitley not concrete yet.

     

    I wouldn't have posted it at all, if the original tweets weren't from the same guy that said Melky Cabrera was going to get pinched, last summer.



    Bla Bla Bla

    my question is why U didn't post this

     

    Jon Heyman ‏@JonHeymanCBS

    that ped rumor thats been floating out there today is compete BS, and thats capital BS. lets move on.

    Because Heyman sounds like a guy that got beat on a story.

    I guess it's too much work for Johnny to state why he thinks it's BS.


    I don't see what your problem is with the original post.

    You're a big fan of PEDs, aren't you?

    I never said the blogger was more credible.

    Try again...

    However, the blogger in question, from most reports I've read, did have the Cabrera story before anyone else last year.


    When is the last time Heyan got anything right?

     

    You've never stated that you don't see what a big deal PEDs are, because everyone was doing them, or that pitchers and hitters were doing them, so it evens out?

    If not, my apologies...

    no U didn't actually say it

     but your reason for not posting his tweet and posting the other guys did

    reports ? as in more than one

    who wrote those reports anyone U ever heard of


    When is the last time Heyan got anything right?

    heyman doesn't need me to defend him

    he wouldn't have gotten 2 where he is 4 this long

    by not having cred

    yeah I pretty much said all that

    not sure how that makes me a fan

    but U are correct after the initial 'there is no santa claus' dissapointment

    they never upset me like they have so many others

    The same way my not posting a Heyman tweet "says" something.

    Inference works for others too, not just you, Zac.

    He also "broke" the story that Jeter and Bautista were about to be suspended last November. Seriously, don't you guys do any homework before believing an unheard of Met's fan twitter account?

     

     

     

    Joe Bisceglie @joebisceglie

    My "sources" tell me Derek Jeter and Jose Bautista will be informed by MLB they will be suspended for failed PED test

    10:18 PM - 27 Nov 12



    when called on that

    he later  pretended he was just jokin

     

     

    Here is Joe’s response:

    “You guys are all right, I have no credibility. I can’t even name my source for you. One of the worst things about the internet is that any idiot can write any nonsense and post it as “news”.  I wouldn’t have even read my own story unless it got picked up by ESPN or Yahoo or some other reputable sports website. I’m not a journalist. I’m not fuxxxckin’ Peter Gammons, or Buster Olney.  I’m a guy who took one journalism class 100 years ago in college. When I write about sports here on DAPS I’m exclusively writing editorial pieces meant to amuse other people like me and hopefully provide them with a take on stuff they haven’t heard before. The most popular feature I write includes a picture of an attractive woman at the end so that people will actually read it.”
