The test was tainted no matter whether it was actually positive or not and this whole biogenisis clinic is probably who leaked the test results in the first place since it was 'someone they consulted in Florida'. This is beyond a non story for fantasy baseball standpoint. Guess it is a good way to get Braun cheap though.
Here is the order of things I worry about with Braun and MCab.
1. Braun's intercostal muscle. This is something he has to manage all year round and you never know when it is going to flair up on him.
2. MCab's weight. There just aren't many 3B that have survived long while weighing anywhere near what MCab does, his knees are gonna give at some point.
3. Random stat fluctuations or injuries derailing one of their seasons.
4. One of them getting suspended for steroids which is less likely than some random injury.

Did you know that Mike Trout came into camp at 240 (same weight as Miggy) and he is 3 inches shorter AND he plays center field, a much more demanding position. Why aren't you talking about him?

Hmmm, I guess it depends on what you mean by demanding...but the OF is more demanding on the body than INF. All the running, diving from a full sprint and running into walls is worse than what you get in the INF. INF contains skill positions and quick twitch responses but to me they aren't as demanding on the body as the OF.
And the majority of my baseball years have been in the infield.
