You would think that.

Couldn't it be a backup AL Outfielder? It doesn't nessicarily have to be a starter, does it?

Actually I read that it's a significant name, so it probably isn't a backup.

Is Carl Everett classified as an outfielder? He wouldn't surprise me either.

I don't care who it is as long as the MLB takes this opportunity to realize that this is yet another serious loophole in the steroid system. Players who test positive and then play in the playoffs only to be suspended afterwards? Wrong...

Michael Kay reported that original rumor that he got from "sources". The sources were obviously wrong. Will Carroll however was actually involved in the appeal process. This seems to have more credibility to it.

BTW- If I remember correctly Sheffield doesnt have an agent. So it cant be him, right?

thats a very valid point, and well taken ..

I think the difference is, that was a rumor, it was reported as a rumor, and we discussed it as a rumor.
Here we have a guy who openly admits he sat in as an abitrator. Unless he is making it all up, He sat in on something Roids and Playoff related. That cannot be good for baseball period.

I think if it's a Red Sock, Nixon is the most likely candidate.
