I don't think there is any story that can come out that says "Player X linked to PEDs" that would shock me anymore.

A-Rod isn't particularly surprising. Doctors were saying his hip injuries might have been linked to steroid use. I saw on Twitter that the Yankees might try and get the contract voided somehow.

A-Rod has said numerous times that his steroid use could be limited to 2001-2003 and that is obviously not the case.

I remember watching Gio throw in ST in 2007 at Ho Ho Kam against the Cubs and I knew this kid would be good. He had a certain prescense on the mound out there, he knew how to change speeds but I definitely had doubt with his size considering how short and skinny he was. Apparently Gio and his camp had the same thought process. Sucks to see a guy that I watched develop and really rooted for suceed only to get his production overshadowed by steroid allegations.

Jon Heyman tweeted that there does not need to be a positive test in order to file a suspension. It is likely that a full investigation takes place and suspensions are handed out.

I do not know about that. You can definitely see the numbers fall after the isolated years that have been considered the "steroid era." While I will not be surprised if any player shows up in rumors or tests positive, there has definitely been an improvement on the overall landscape of PEDs in the MLB.

I wonder if the Blue Jays can void Cabrera's contract now. If there are suspensions handed down his should be for the whole season.

Just got an ESPN alert on this. Did Deadspin beat them to the punch again?

EDIT: never mind. A Miami newspaper I believe reported this first.

Interesting. Cabrera's suspension from last August is probably from the substances he obtained from this lab. Would that not be the same as punishing him twice?

Maybe the Gio deals Kenny pulled off won't turn out to be so bad after all. Especially if Gio in fact is suspended for using them.

Ken Rosenthal was just on MLB Network and mentioned that what Gio was acquiring was anti-aging stuff which would support what Gio's father said which was that he had the connection to the dealer in Miami and Gio just paid for it. ARod and Melky Cabrera are linked to HGH and testosterone amongst other things.

The Yankees get what they deserve. They gave him a $3.5M a year raise when he opted out of his contract and they were bidding against no one.

I would have liked to have seen them go after Jason Giambi when he finally came clean. I'm not a lawyer, but it seems to me that you can argue fraud when you give a player a 7/$125M deal (or whatever it was) based on previous performance that was a result of PED use.

This could be true, as Gio's denial (on Twitter) leaves this possibility open. But... Gio also referred to "Anthony Bosch" as "tony" in the same set of Tweets. Weird, considering most articles - and headlines - refer to him as "Anthony".

Apparently the stuff the clinic was selling is not on baseball's list of banned substances.

Still, it's dumb that this guy kept records on selling PEDs to pro ball players.
