Rincon suspended 10 days--'roids

i think the twins should retroactively forfeit all the games Rincon pitched in this year. THAT should be the penalty.

Well, when they do a urine or blood test, all the toxins show up in the findings. So it's not as much testing for a specific drug as testing for all of them.

I don't believe that MLB has a marijuana policy, however, or guys like Matt Riley would be banned.... :-°

This is very suprising. Do you guys expect his performance to suffer when he returns?

I dont think there is either because none of the Mets' high flyers a couple of years ago were suspended (Tarasco, Grant Roberts, Mark Corey)

I'm kind of back and forth on what he'll be doing when he gets back.

I have him on both my teams-- one w/ holds and one just to nudge the numbers a bit-- and my initial thought was '&^%*, off to the WW with you' but both teams are doing ok and I don't have a lot of guys I'm looking at and am getting near to the #1 waiver spot so I'm going to just sit on Rincon until he comes back or in case I do need to dump him to grab somebody.

He wasn't quite as good as I'd hoped he'd be but I've been pretty pleased w/ the results so far.

And? Big deal. Asterisk their records too. We aren't basing records on the current batter vs. the current pitcher. Records have historic value.


Yeah, records only have value relative to the era. Should we asterisk Babe ruth because he didn't play with black players? How about the dead ball era, should we go back and add 20 HR to everyone's total because it was harder to hit HR? Don't think so.

Records only have meaning in the context of the competition and the era in which they came. There has always been cheating, and there always will be. Corked bats and spitballs are just earlier manifestations of cheating.

What I'm saying is the fact that pitchers were cheating balances out the fact that hitters were too. Hitters just get all the publicity because they are more captivating when they hit long HR.

Holy crap, the first semi owned player goes down! This hurts me bad this week in my 18 team 6x6 H2H. I'm down to BJ Ryan and Madson now for MR :-o
