Waiting for the shoe to drop.

I own Cruz in 3 leagues, E. Cab in 3, and Peralta in 1. I'm not dropping them until it is official and they are not appealing.

I have:
Cruz in one - but I'm in 4th place 26 games out so who cares
Melky in 4 - but he's sucked all year so who cares
Colon in one - where I'm in second place but even with him I can't seem to catch up to 1st
ARod in one - the same 4th place team as Cruz where I picked him as a 26th round keeper

I wonder if there are any unlinked names that are going to show up. I don't think my team has any Biogenesis linked players but this will definitely shake up the playoff picture. Our playoffs start on the 12th allowing for 3 two week matchups. Pretty early but it works well.

Rotoworld is reporting Cruz, E. Cab, & Peralta have accepted 50 game suspension. No further penalty for Melky & Colon. I guess I can start dropping them now. I was sure hoping Cruz would appeal.

So these players would be available (but rusty) for the postseason? Interesting twist.

They would, but it's unclear whether their teams would activate them for the post season roster. The Giants decided to move on without Melky Cabrera last year.
