    The penalty to the player is loss of salary.

    The penalty to the team is supposedly loss of use of the player. But in this case, the Reds kinda win-win here, as they will still get the benefit of Volquez using the PEDs, because he wasn't due back in 50 games anyway, but will not have to pay him during the suspension. Assuming that Volquez keeps up his training during the 50 games he is "suspended".

    You hit the nail on the head. All Volquez loses $$$, Reds aren't affected timeline-wise with his return.

    It has to be HGH. Most of your Steroids injection based or oral will not help someone recover from any type pf ligament damage. As a matter of fact most Steroid based injuries occur because the muscle will grow so rapidly and your strength increases so quickly that you end up injuring ligaments that are still at prejuiced strength. I tore my rotator cuff this way.. Where HGH helps burn fat, tighten skin, increase your muscle atrophy recovery, and strengthen ligaments.

    Can't say I blame the kid. But it explains why he was recovering ahead of schedule. Now with him coming off he still will reap the benefits for about 2 to 4 more weeks before his body starts to return to normal levels. That being said, he should slow down his time table st and not push himself to be back until Sept when the Rosters expand to insure no more injuries.
    If you can't be a good example... then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...

    Nothing tastes as good as being fit feels...

    Re: Volquez to be suspended 50 games for PED use

    He had a perfectly reasonable explanation from what I've read, but all I've seen in posts on this board are people just railing into him like he's McGuire or something. The poor guy's boys can't swim and he wants to have a kid, and that's all there is to it basically.

    Re: Volquez to be suspended 50 games for PED use

    Mark McGwire had a perfectly good reason too, he wasn't hitting home runs at record breaking rates, and he wanted to leave his mark on baseball history. Obviously thats what Volquez is going to say, thats what Manny said as well, but I didn't see people sticking up for him because they didn't like him. I still like Volquez, and it doesn't matter to me, i'm just saying its no better for him to do it than anyone else if it wasn't prescribed.

    yea drugs that can be considered masking agents, certain types of other drugs that might be abused when not actually rehabbing. Some inhalers. All types of things are on it.

    I heard on ESPN he was blaming the positive test on something he was taking for family planning but wasn't going to appeal.

    Re: Volquez to be suspended 50 games for PED use

    Has anybody actually read Volquez's statement? From the comments on here, I assume not. The statement says the drug (whatever it was) was prescribed meds he took while back in D.R. that were given for the purpose of assisting he and his wife to start a family. He even alluded to this being due to some common physical issue which interferes with such efforts.
    So can all you executioners please take down your nooses??? Seems like an extremely plausible and justifiable explanation to me. Guilty for taking a PED? Yes. Was it some nefarious plan to get ahead? Doesn't sound like it. Give the guy a break.
    Better to be silent and thought a fool, than speak and be proven one.
