    Because I am not out here trying to spread rumors of this magnitude that may not be true. It would be one thing if it was "oh, he might have hurt himself", but that isn't the case here.

    Most people come back throwing harder after TJ.

    Volquez did. Granted he had some HGH too.

    I personally think it's lame as well. Why say anything at all if you're not going to share?

    The simple solution is saying, "I don't know if it's true, this is purely a rumor, but..."

    Has Correa been suspended for PED's at some point in his career? Just curious...

    The Correa situation will clear up eventually but he is not currently active. Do not criticize Doug on this. If he was told not to say anything, and he discloses info on a public forum, then that source is going to take issue. Then you are going to get less info in the future.

    I figured I would share that there is something more going on here than a simple injury issue (allegedly). I got my information second hand from a guy who has given me good information before, but I haven't been able to confirm it elsewhere either at this point. That is why I am not saying what exactly is going on.

    For those wondering about Jonathan Correa...

    Reds prospect Jonathan Correa suspended one year for lying about age

    http://hardballtalk.nbcsports.com/20...ing-about-age/

    He is currently on the "disqualified list" while serving his suspension.

    Disqualified List - "A player who violates a player contract or reservation may be placed on this list. There is no minimum number of days the player must remain on the Disqualified List before the player can be reinstated to the Active List. A player on the Disqualified List does not count against a Club's Active List limits or its Reserve List limits."

    Hope this helps!

    So the penalty for being older than he says is taking him out of action for a year. Double whammy!
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
