Updating other PED threads: latest possibilities?

Postby Millhouse » Sun Jul 28, 2013 1:34 pm

Okay, the other suspension threads seem to have run out of steam. So with news that suspensions could be coming this week, let's list the guys who MIGHT be hit, if this report http://tinyurl.com/nr4qr7m is correct. In other words, all the players -- fantasy-relevant players that is, e.g. not Francisco Cervelli -- who've been mentioned or linked to Biogenesis before & are POSSIBLE rest-of-year suspension candidates.

Braun -- DONE

ARod -- very likely done, perhaps til 2015.

Gio Gonzalez, Nelson Cruz, Everth Cabrera, Bartolo Colon, Robinson Cano, Jhonny Peralta, Melky Cabrera -- TBD (although most reports say Gio and Cano are less "involved" than the other guys might be).

Anyone I'm missing?

So I would have said "Braun was suspended a few days ago." and then anyone that remembers that thread would have started posting the names you listed.

I think Cruz will be gone next. Being a FA next year I think he'll want to get it out of the way this year. I've heard rumors that the A's think the information on Colon is only about what he was taking when he already got caught and served a suspension. If so they've already punished him once and he wouldn't get popped again. Though I still don't believe that a guy that's been caught cheating can have his best year of his career close to 40 years old without reasonable suspicion that he's still been using.

With the Rangers fighting for a post season spot I can't imagine that they would prefer that he just takes the suspension. I'd expect an appeal. If he has to sit for 50 games to begin next season he'll have 100 more to show teams that he's still capable ... or not.
