If anyone is worried about either Cano or Braun in a keeper league or current redraft league, then just trade them for equal value to set your mind at ease. The other manager, ideally one to not know about the rumor as of yet, will probably be thrilled to hear from you.

Assuming this is true, and assuming its for PED's, remind me what the suspension time period would be for each of these guys?

OMG just let 'em PED it up and get on with it, the integrity of the game ended with $100 million contracts.

I was very concerned we'd see a good 15-20 guys suspended with the blood testing so this strikes me as more likely than I would normally give credit to a rumor.

$100 million just sounded good but it took far less than that. ;-)

Ouch. That would be very brutal for the Yankees. I cannot remember off the top of my head, would A-Rod be able to serve the suspension while on the 60 day DL?
