    RUMOR - Cano and PEDs

    On phone, no link. But Gammons has "reported" on it and that he has heard he tested positive. But he has said that he doesn't believe it...yet.

    Also, as a side note, Cano and Melky are BFF.

    Multiple outlets on Twitter debunking this rumor. Looks like there's nothing to it.

    unfortunately it doesn't surprise me anymore when anyone gets busted for PEDs.
    For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.

    Multiple outlets also "debunked" the Melky report, FWIW.

    Figures a Red Sox outlet would run this story without any kind of confirmation.

    Be another big suspension if it's true, no doubt.

    Notorious Boston talk radio potstirrers get Gammons on air and ask him about the rumors they'd apparently heard or read, he gives them what seems to be a serious answer. But the station that show is on is not a Red Sox outlet and neither is CSNNE, they are the direct competitors of the stations who air Red Sox games on radio and tv.

    I'm guessing it's real. The reports of baseball's drug problem's death were premature.
    They don't think it be like it is, but it do.

    Did anyone expect otherwise. Guys in every sport are using stuff. Not all of them, but a chunk of them, yes. Football, baseball, basketball, hockey.... all of the sports has their fair share of users.

    I think a fair amount thought the steroid era was "over", not that they will ever be completely eradicated. But I don't think it's as "over" as many want to believe.

    What is it, 3-5 guys getting caught a year? Out of 1200 guys (40 man roster/30 teams), that is essentially no one. I am sure a lot of guys are using and aren't being caught, but the number of people being caught that are on the 40 man rosters of teams is incredibly small.
