Does the suspension include the DL time?

A good break for the Jays.

Van Horn Street, Tuesday, 15 May 2018 19:20 (one year ago) link

apparently the DL time will count toward the 80 games

lotta juicers -- cano, melky, a-rod, pettitte -- on that 2009 yankees team

was apparently appealing since ST; DL time counting in his favor prob led him to drop appeal

Is there no “cmon it’s the fuckin Mariners” appeal option?

Feel bad, but honestly, how stupid can you be?

Maybe this was the secret to Cano's amazing durability? Who knows. McGwire always claimed he only needed PED's to remain in the lineup.

Braun claimed that too. Given he's out every other day, I kinda believe it.

Yeah, I'm sure there is a link when you play so consistently well and virtually injury-free into your mid-'30s. He absolutely won't go into the HOF now. Even writers who have softened on the first PED users--who make the reasonable case that there were no sanctions in place, the league and fans and writers looked the other way, etc.--a lot of them have gone on record as saying that getting caught now is totally different. It's cheating, plain and simple.

(Not saying at all that everyone who's durable is a PED user. But if you get caught, then that's a reasonable link to make.)

i'm not comfortable forecasting future attitudes.

this documentary could be worth a look

Director Billy Corben profiles the colorful South Florida characters who were responsible for supplying performance-enhancing drugs to the Yankees’ Alex Rodriguez and other players. The film plays like a crime comedy in the tradition of Elmore Leonard. The behavior is so childish that Corben reenacts scenes with actual children playing Rodriguez and others, like a cross between The Little Rascals and The Thin Blue Line.

Red Sox pitcher Steven Wright has received an 80-game suspension without pay after testing positive for Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide 2 (GHRP-2), a performance-enhancing substance, in violation of MLB's Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

second knuckleballer to get a PED suspension (after eddie gamboa) iirc

seems particularly dumb

mookieproof, Wednesday, 6 March 2019 21:45 (seven months ago) link

3 stints on the DL in 2018... seems like his left knee cartilage was the culprit.

The use of gas-station sexual-enhancement pills in baseball is so prevalent that MLB sent out a memo warning players that their use could lead to positive PED tests, as at least two players have claimed this year, sources tell ESPN. News:

Twins starter Michael Pineda has been suspended for 60 games for a drug violation, sources tell ESPN. He originally got an 80-game suspension, but it was reduced to 60 on appeal, as a compelling case was made that a banned diuretic he used was not a masking agent for PEDs.
