    Yasmani Grandal Suspended for PED Use

    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    From an irony POV, I love it.

    Might be a wash. One could argue that the Reds effectively put Mes on a ~50-game suspension from the majors at the end of last season.

    I didn't see this one coming.

    But then again, I'm not impressed with Mez either.

    So someone explain to me how these keep coming up. I understand one possibility is someone just thinks they might be able to mask things enough to not get caught, so that's one possibility. Other than that, what else can this be?

    Masking agents and a technology are in a race between those who take and those who test.

    Until guys whole careers are threatened with expulsion expect a constant tennis match between those two groups.

    I'd guess most users stay ahead of the curve with masking or simply because testing is not frequent and mainly urine-based. They probably get away with it most of the time and only get caught when they are unlucky with timing or the masking agent doesn't work correctly.
    Grandal made it through the minors without getting caught.

    Armstrong was never officially "caught", but there is little doubt today that he juiced to the max. And testing in cycling has always been far ahead of baseball's program.

    They are just playing the odds, which are in their favor. Grandel probably won't lose much money over this, unless he keeps juicing and gets busted again. This 50 game suspension costs him very little now, and won't have much effect a few years from when he starts making the big bucks, as long as he is productive.

    Moron. I'm glad we shipped him instead of Mez.

    Walt Jocketty is a genius.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    The cost is likely that he isn't as good as he appeared to be. He may have been on PEDs since college, and the Reds may have even suspected it.
