    Nice. Agree with WOY, obviously the deterrents aren't deterring enough.

    It should be one season for a bust, and banned for life for 2nd offense. And any contract is voided if you're caught. I bet that would get it done.

    I'm thinking the main thing that would get "done" is team personnel slipping guys a little extra something in hopes of ridding themselves of albatross contracts. Not that I'm cynical or anything.

    The frequency of these suspensions is almost comical. Clearly MLB isn't very serious about this problem.

    How so? They test four times a year. They can only suspend someone if they are found to have violated the specific terms of the agreement. I'm not sure how the frequency in which they catch players in the act in any way, shape or form illustrates how "serious" MLB is about the issue.

    I think we've found a whole new roster building tactic. Draft a juicer and deal him for an ace before he gets caught.

    Any chance the Reds knew/suspected something?
    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.

    Unfortunately it's one of those things an organization would never come out and say.

    If only we had an inside source (cough).

    I doubt it. I don't see it as in any team's long term interest to trade damaged goods to other clubs. Jocketty surely knows that.

    Interesting. So now two players in the Latos deal have a PED history; Grandal and Volquez.... The fans on PadresZone will not be happy.

    I would guess he got popped after the All-Star break. And I don't know if the Reds "knew" anything. College players get drug tested too so I don't know how he could have avoided it back then.
