more.
http://espn.go.com/espn/otl/story/_/id/ ... estigation
The players who might ultimately face discipline from MLB include: Rodriguez, Braun, Cabrera, Colon, Grandal, Nelson Cruz, Francisco Cervelli, Jesus Montero, Jhonny Peralta, CesarPuello, Fernando Martinez, Everth Cabrera, Fautini de los Santos, Jordan Norberto, and a number of players who are either identified by code names or whose names appear in other documents not obtained by "Outside the Lines." All are currently on major-league rosters but for Puello, a top outfield prospect for the New York Mets who is playing in Class AA Binghamton.

ARod, Braun, Gio Gonzalez, Nelson Cruz, who else?


Cano and Gio were connected also, IIRC.
I heard Arod and Braun were on the list too.

Jesus Montero must really suck if he's juicing and doing this poorly.

Sources tell @OTLonESPN Bosch will swear an affidavit that he provided drugs to players. MLB may seek 100-game suspensions for Braun, A-Rod

Next question: is it ethical to try and unload one of these players ASAP?

if one owns one or more of these players, and you trade them and the person trading for them finds out afterwards that they were suspended they are likely going to be upset, but I don't think there is any rule against it, or IMO anything wrong with it. I personally would do whatever it takes to win within the written rules. now if you're playing with people you know, or in a keeper league, you have to consider what effect that has on things going beyond just this season.

T.J. Quinn of ESPN reports MLB will seek to suspend Alex Rodriguez, Ryan Braun and about 20 players connected to Miami clinic. Founder Tony Bosch agreed to cooperate.


This is potentially huge news, should MLB prove successful in battling the players' union on this issue. Many pundits believe that the negotiation would take months (or longer) though, which implies that any suspensions would not go into effect until next year at the earliest. Fantasy owners certainly hope that's the case, as it is near impossible to measure and balance the unknown risk of potential future suspensions. Trade might be an interesting avenue to explore, but these whispers are certainly doing nothing to help the perceived value of a guy like Ryan Braun. You've got little choice but to closely monitor this situation as it develops.


This is all I could find so far

If you find willing owners, they are free game. This isn't subtle news or anything new. If any owner does not know about these allegations, they haven't been paying the slightest bit of attention and the fault squarely falls at their feet.
