    Volquez suspended 50 games for using PEDs

    Can't believe this hasn't been discussed yet, as it was news last night, but there's a heavy rumor swirling right now that an NL pitcher who's a "semi-big name but not a star" is going to be suspended for 50 games for PED's... Arroyo's past comments have me a bit worried that it could be him... Pure speculation at this point, and hope it's not.

    Dear Bud,

    Please spare my fantasy team. They're bad enough as it is.

    Your friend,

    GR.

    P.S.: If you could also spare the Reds, I'd be grateful. They're bad enough as it is.

    Where is this being discussed is there a link? (I believe you just want to email it to a few friends)

    Let the guessing games begin.

    I'd be psyched if it's Wainwright. Actually, probably not, even if the Cards lost Wainwright for 50 games that does nothing to help the Reds playoff chances.

    Surely Wainwright is a "star." Arguably the best NL pitcher last year.

    I've just been seeing it on Will Carroll's twitter feed since last night...

    Two names the StL forum I frequent are tossing around as their guesses is Arroyo and Harang... Once again, pure speculation, just interesting to see the view from the opposing side.

    I think as far as in terms of stardom, Wainwright falls into the category of "semi-big" not a "huge" name. Unless we're talking about number of letters, then Wainwright is probably out.

    If it is one of these guys, does it mean anything for Dusty?

    Another link:

    I love my deadspin... but Hardball talk (Calcatera) is the way to go as far as a credible write-up

    It's kind of ironic that Cardinals fans would be pointing fingers at players on other teams. It could be Arroyo, who knows, but if I had to place a bet on it, my best guess would be it's a Cardinals player. Maybe Kyle Lohse?
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Yeah, another forum I have been on keeps throwing out Zambrano. I don't think anybody has any idea, they're just throwing out names of guys they hope it is.

    I would say there's NO WAY it's Aaron Harang due to his character. It's not going to be a Red.

    But I'll say this, Harang looks leaner. You can't tell on TV. I was right by him when he was warming up in the outfield on opening day and he LOOKS physically different. More lean and trim. I still would bet my next paycheck it's not Aaron.
