    Kind of funny that the ad that appears next to the espn story reads: "Testosterone Trick You Won't Want to Share."

    No kidding.

    Do the Reds have anybody linked to PEDs
    Johnny Cueto is from San PEDro de Macoris and PEDro Villareal is guilty by association.

    Jhonny Peralta Tigers
    Cesar Puello** Mets
    Alex Rodriguez Yankees
    * Sources told ESPN that Gonzalez received only legal substances ** minor leaguer, not a member of the MLB Players Association
    Half the guys on this list should ask for their money back from Biogenesis.
    For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.

    Purely speculative, but it wouldn't surprise me to see Yonder Alonso's name added to this list. Miami grad, friend's with Grandal etc.

    With their combined -0.6 WAR so far this season (through 43 innings), I think they actually could do better.

    Funny, but the biogenesis connection could be the only reason they remain in the majors. PEDs are a problem at all levels of baseball, not just the majors.

    Youre telling me. I walked down to the basement yesterday and saw my little brother shooting roids in his ass. Kids only 5 years old

    No, I did NOT have any inside info as to why I posted these 2 guys in the same sentence earlier today. Really unfortunate coincidence.

    That tee-ball league is in for a world of hurt, though.
    They don't think it be like it is, but it do.

    Cingrani actually would. But he's not a scrub, so I guess you aren't referring to him.

    Melky Cabrera posted a .170 IsoP in 2012. He posted a .165 IsoP the year before. The main difference in 2012 versus 2011 was his BABIP going from .332 to .379.

    Carlos Gomez is similar. His IsoP is up 40 points, but he had good power numbers last year too they are just a little better this year. Walk rates and strikeout rates are nearly identical. The big difference? BABIP. .296 to .377.

    Sometimes "improvements" have reasonable explanations that aren't "'STEROID/HGH/TESTOSTERONE".

    So anyone who has ever been to Miami should be a suspect? Miami produces a whole lot of baseball players who wind up as professionals. They have two guys that have shown up on these lists.

    Wow. Good job sir. You randomly picked the two players who were in transactions today. For some reason my mind is now blown
