    A-Rod linked to PED's -- AGAIN

    Wow, how dirty is this guy? It's looking like his entire career was a fraud, even as recently as 2012.

    The report includes other players as well. If these reports are still coming out of the woodwork, how are we to believe anyone is clean at this point?

    A-ROD'S contract should now be null and void now.

    Good news for the Yankees. Bad news for anyone else wanting a FA in the next couple of years.

    A-Rod's career definitely took another major hit today.

    ARod got old rapidly so it made me believe he had at least gotten off the good stuff. Interesting to see Gio Gonzalez's name on there as well.

    Yeah. What are the odds that GG gets suspended now?

    One thing is certain; the 50-game suspensions are not bringing this issue to an end. It makes me wonder how often (or how rarely) random drug tests are administered to players. Are some players tested more frequently than others? Are some not tested at all? What does "random" really mean in regards to MLB's drug testing policy?

    Yep....more names are supposed to come out today in relation to the Miami clinic....I'll be stunned if Yonder Alonso's name doesn't eventually surface.

    Wow at Gio being mentioned. Looks like his past few incredible seasons have been nothing more than a farce

    I read a Deadspin article today that talked to Votto about this very question. Not a recent interview, but relevant.

    How many times a year are you tested for steroids?
    "Brandon Phillips and I are probably tested 5-7 times a year, HGH included. [Dan Patrick: How does the process work?] Blood test for the HGH and urine sample for everything else. Pants down. Microscope right next to your groin and they get to do that as often and randomly as they want."

    Thanks for that link. That answered my question pretty well.

    I saw that Alex has already hired a high dollar lawyer. That means something in itself IMO.


    Personally I only have 1 problem with that, giving the Yankees the gift of getting under the luxury tax next year. Those clowns need to pay out the wazoo for handing out multiple stupid $$$$$ contracts but that's my own little pet peeve.

    I was a bit shocked about seeing GG on it as well.
