    Whoa, didn't see that one coming.

    An MLB.com reporter asked what one thing Votto couldn’t do. “I can’t skate or play hockey,” Votto said. “Well, I can skate ... but I can’t stop.”

    Not to mention the dodgers. The NL West became very interesting.

    I guess we really have zero clue about anyone and shouldn't assume anything about anyone.

    Told myself I wouldn't be surprised if I found out Manny did steroids. However, I'm shocked that he actually failed a test. What an idiot.

    Gammons says he didn't test positive for a steroid. According to Manny, it's from medication a doctor gave him for a medical issue.
