A-Rod, Melky, Gio Gonzalez, and others involved in another PED scandal? - Page 2

post #31 of 59

I seriously dont care what the yankees say publicly about this situation, i know for a fact behind closed doors the yankees absolutely can't stand his bs anymore. This is the second time this has happened with ped's, always injured, along with drama with public relationships with famous actresses, him & girardi dont get along and besides he hasn't earned a dime of that $275 million contract (except for the 09' postseason).

 

This dude can't hit a fastball.

 

He has missed almost 200 games in the last 4 seasons. 

 

He's going to be 38 with 5 years left on his deal. I promise you the yankees will find a loophole in the contract do whatever they can to void it somehow & get it done.  

 

There is another solution. Yankees can ask Arod to retire due to injuries, insurance can pick up 85% of the remaining contract & it comes off the Yankees books. Boom. Long shot cause Arod is a spoiled brat. 

 

He will never be Derek Jeter

No way that happens, MLB and the Players Union will never go for it.



CBA says a contract can't be terminated due to PEDs.


This story is sketchy.

Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun just released this statement:

“During the course of preparing for my successful appeal last year, my attorneys, who were previously familiar with Tony Bosch, used him as a consultant. More specifically, he answered questions about T/E ratio and possibilities of tampering with samples.

“There was a dispute over compensation for Bosch’s work, which is why my lawyer and I are listed under ‘moneys owed’ and not on any other list.

“I have nothing to hide and have never had any other relationship with Bosch.

“I will fully cooperate with any inquiry into this matter.”



Case closed.

I never liked this dude, and I hope this is true. I've met him on several occasions and he was a jerk everytime.

Braun seems confident with his statement as to why he was mentioned. His statement makes sense as to why he was not listed next to PED's like the others. Seems like the media is pouncing on his name being mentioned to create a better story due to obvious reasons. The other guys are linked to PED's on the documents. Braun is not. That should be made more clear.

Although the Miami connection worries me. Especially with Miami's strength and conditioning coach allegedly having a connection with Bosch.

Who the hell knows though. As long as dude plays 162 games I don't really care. I accepted that everyone's gonna try to gain an advantage long before Braun got caught. It's become apart of the game. Just make sure you continue to play games.

Braun also knows most of us aren't that dumb. We may never know what all went down at Biogenesis but he's more than likely connected to this company and it's not because of "legal consulting."

Let's quickly review the facts we know.

1. MLB tells us Braun failed a random drug test in the 2011 playoffs, regardless if improper handling happened afterwards.
2. Braun played baseball at the University of Miami.
3. The University of Miami's baseball stadium is across the street from Biogenesis.
4. Danny Valencia, Cesar Carrillo, Yasmani Grandal, Alex Rodriguez, and Jimmy Goins all were also on the leaked list of names. All either played, worked, or trained at the University of Miami.
5. Braun wants us to believe his name is on Biogenesis documents (although with no incriminating markings we must note) and it has nothing whatsoever to do with the others - his friends and former teammates.

Perhaps he is just unlucky but at this point we are trained now to not believe a thing these dudes claim.

Curt Schilling says that members of the Red Sox organization recommended steroids for him to get back from his injury in '08. http://espn.go.com/boston/mlb/story/_/id/8925719/curt-schilling-says-performance-enhancing-drugs-were-raised-option-the-2008-boston-red-sox-clubhouse

This further confirms to me my thought that most MLB players are on steroids. The league and owners, in my opinion, just pick and choose who they want to go after to try to make it seem like they give a damn. When a player is hitting 50 hr's and adding revenue and new fans for their respective team and the league everyone turns a blind eye.

I'm against PEDs, but why the hell would Schilling come out and say this?

F Curt Schilling. Pompous **** head selling out his team. The crappy thing is, baseball writers are going to eat this story up, and will probably make his borderline Hall of Fame career into a Hall of Fame lock. SMH.

Simply answer is because he is a douchebag.

I wouldn't doubt if Schilling did use the PED's, but they didn't work for him, so now he comes out trying to be the hero speaking out about it laugh.gif

Schilling embarrassed himself so badly with his video game company that I cannot take him seriously whatsoever anymore, even on baseball topics. He should have gone away for awhile.

MLB just needs to do a 1 year ban for 1st offense, 2nd offense is lifetime ban.
I don't agree/like that so many of the Latin players take it, but if that's the only way to get out of poverty and the country, I understand why it's so heavily used.
post #56 of 59
The MLB just needs to find a way to regulate it because PED's and/or HGH aren't going anywhere. This is just adding to the annoyance. No one really cares.

Whether they care or not, it looks bad for the sport. Especially when you have marquee players getting caught up

The sport of baseball never got a black eye from these incidents though. It's been the players legacy's that has taken the hit. It's why this has felt like a witch hunt in the past. It wasn't to bring down the game of baseball, but its stars, who probably all have taken some form of these.

And its not like the other major sports have clean hands with this stuff. They just haven't been subjected to the same rigamarole that the MLB has. Hell, the NFL doesn't even do HGH testing at this point in time.

Everyone does it is hardly a cop out, but it's part of the world today. For everyone. Non-athletes take things similar, in order to recover from injuries/surgeries faster. I think this has gotten way out of hand and it's silly to continue on this path.
