    Grandal out for first 50

    Yosmani Grandal will serve a 50 suspension to start the 2013 season after being busted for PEDs.

    And in other news, Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still dead.


    Fwiw, Grandal had an unsual power surge the latter half of his college career at Miami that in retrospect was likely a creation of PEDs. He might still blossom into a everyday catcher with thump, but since his bat is his biggest asset, I'd say the Reds sold at the right time...

    The first time I heard about him getting busted, I was so thankful we got something for him before he became a flop.

    PEDs or not, guy looks legit. Such a great swing from both sides and terrific plate discipline. Suppose PEDs had something to do with that, but you can tell he's got the tools regardless.

    PEDs had a lot to do with the pop. Everything else is legit.

    Yeah but can you count on a guy that is one test away from a longer suspension? Legit or not you have to view this in a similar manner to a guy with a long injury history.

    Personally, I'm glad he gave me a reason to be glad that he's gone.

    Unfortunately, the Reds don't catch the Padres until July. He seems to always rock Reds' pitching, at least, it seems that way to me.

    Maybe the roids had something to do with it.

    Walt continues to look more and more like a genius everyday.

    Clearly the Reds Front Office must have had some insight into these allegations. Adding Grandal to the offer for Latos certainly got the deal done. I hope and assume the Reds want nothing to do with anyone associated with Doping.

    Interesting time here in Sports land. Have we finally reached the tipping point of cheating in baseball and cycling? Will the NFL tone down their players before an actual on field death happens? Do we finally understand that our professional athletes are the role models for our children and will now hold them accountable for their actions?

    One can only hope so.

    You gotta think people in the fromt office may know KNOW...but they know. I'm not saying that Walt did anything shady, but I also dont buy it when managers and GMs claim complete ignorance

    Suspension or not...Grandal really looks like a stud at the dish. It will be interesting to revisit the Grandal vs. Mez argument in a few years.
