    Type in #Cano into twitter and rumors are Cano tested positive for performance enhancing drugs and that MLB will announce it in a few hours and he will be suspended. Thoughts?

     

    [/QUOTE]

    I'm glad MLB is finally starting to put some sort of accountability in place for testing positive but that doesn't necessarily mean Cano isn't another victim like Braun.  I think at least one player from every team has done PEDS at one time or another.

    The game was tainted for years and we all have to just face the facts.

    A Yankee on Roids????  Impossible.  I hear they tried testing Jeter but his Urine keeps melting the cups.

    Spoken like a true malcontent fan of a rival team. While we're at it, maybe there should be an investigation as to why TW hit 388 at the age of 39. It could have been a Teddy greenie fest.

     

    See how retxarded that sounds?

    That would explain why he went from a .235 hitting also ran to Mr. Big almost overnight. Wow what a laugh that would be. LOL

    Is this being brought up, because he's been in a big slump? Does that mean anyone who does so is coming off PED usage? Only to simple minded fans and media.

    I hate this stuff, because it can taint an innocent player with a false positive.(see Ryan Braun) Like Braun, Cano has been a star from day one, and been tested dozens of times over the years for PEDs.This isn't a case of someone suddenly becoming a super hiter out of nowhere.

    Just like the idiot Skip Bayless accusing Jeter of using PEDs. It's just too easy to smear a player with that.

     

    [/QUOTE]

    Right. "False positive"? And just how did this so called false positive take place? We never did hear a solid explanation. He had smoething like five or ten times the natural level in his blood. Did the guy that ran the test spill an old two liter bottle of Canseco's urine on the table before he ran Braun's test? What? He's guilty, and got off with a technicality.

    Funny thing. Only baseball has really made some effort to do something about PEDs.
    You can't tell me that the NFL and NBA don't have legions of roiders.
    Just look at the average NBA player (because it's easier than looking at NFLers loaded with padding). Just jacked bodies. Then look at a 1985 video of the Celts.
    Now, we'll get all the, "these guys work more with weights, and athletes are more developed than in those days". I don't buy it. Maybe that's true to some extent, but not to the degree that we're seeing today.
    So, how many NFL and NBA players have been suspended lately for PEDs?
    A slew of athletes were caught in the Olympics for PEDs.
    I can't think of any for the NBA, and really, for the NFL.
    The powers that be in those leagues, just don't want to rock the boat.

    The use of PEDs is widespread.  It is in all sports , at all levels.  Also , in police and fire departments , as well as throughout show business.  At least baseball is making an attempt to control it.  But it is a losing battle.

    And BTW, Cano was not a star from day one. He was a struggling, mediocre, maddeningly inconsistent, 7th place hitter before he all the sudden turned into Maris. Maybe he did, maybe he didn't, but don't tell us he was a star from day one.

    This reporter from the Charlotte, NC newspaper ( isn't that where Softlaw lives) who is a rabid Mets fan started this BS about Cano. He has since killed his tweeter account. Why not call this thread BS and start another one about the Red Sox?

     

    [/QUOTE]

    Not really, pike. Peter Gammons said he also heard two weeks ago, Cano tested positive for PEDS, nothing since.  The difference, Gammons knew enough to keep it to himself. May not have heard the last of this. we'll see.

     Exam can speak for himself steven, but I think he's talking about the first season they brought him up. I remember talking to a friend of mine, who is a nyy fan him that year. he said he thought Cano would turn out to be "OK" I beleive it was the season after they traded Soriano.

    Those BAs are not of an also ran player. He wasn't good defensively in the early going either. And it is not unusual for a newcomer to need a few seasons to acquire the HR touch; to wit, here are the early HR totals of a few others; note the progression:

    Mantle:13,23,21,27 (Then a league leading 37, 52)

    Musial:10,13,12,16,19 (Then 39)

    Yaz:11, 19, 14,15,20,16 (Then 44,23,40,40)

    Henderson: 1,9,6,10,9,16,24,28

    Clemente: 5,7,4,6,4,16,23

    Yount: 3,8,2,4,9,8,23,10,29

    Hornsby: 6,8,5,8,9,21,42

    Aaron: 13,27,26,44

    Also, let me point out that ALL of those guys I mentioned most likely did greenies, (Aaron admitted it, and I believe Mantle did it to get over hangovers) which has a greater short term effect than the long term effect from steroids. Do they get a free pass?
