Apparently it's the same guy who first called the Melky suspension a month before it happened. I don't know if it's true or not but there are pretty massive fantasy implications if it is.

Braun and Cano would take pretty massive hits for sure. So would the Yankees. Not sure what to make of this...I wouldn't be surprised by it but I also don't know how reliable this source is. The Melky thing seems to give him a bit of credibility but why is he the only guy with this scoop? This is bizarre.

Something to keep an eye on obviously, but...

Apart from this guy apparently getting the inside scoop on Melky Cabrera, what else do we know about him and his reliability? As an ignorant Brit, this is the first I've heard of him! Does he have a history of getting this sort of thing right?

I've never heard of him or the site before so I'm skeptical as well, but if he was the first to get Melky right (I can't find much on that other than the tweet in that link), then it seems definitely possible that he's right on this.

Just went back through that guys tweets and he did indeed tweet on July 18th last year that Melky was going to be suspended. That was almost a month before it came out anywhere else.

Wonder if Cano is even worth holding onto in a 1 year keeper now.

I wouldn't be making an rash decisions on this. It's still the only place I can find reporting it and it's not even a sports website. The only reason to think it might be true is that he was correct about Melky. It's definitely worrisome, but it could still turn out to be completely false.

I hear that, I need to make a decision on Cano this weekend though. I could keep Sale/Bumgardner instead. Appriciate any info you guys dig up, even if the speculation doesn't come to. ;-D
