    I swear every time you hear about a player taking something it just adds a couple years onto
    'the Steroid Era.' Which is such just great publicity for the game of baseball itself.

    The whole point of my mentioning AROD as the last yankee to be caught was to argue that yankees who get caught these days really don't fare any worse than members of another team who get caught. You know, the good ole "OMG, if it was a Yankee, we'd never hear the end of it!" But, as you so kindly pointed out, AROD wasn't even a yankee. So even less Yankees were vilified in the press than I though. Silly me.

    I personally don't have any issues with PEDs. But I know I'm in the minority.

    OOPS- so much for credibility for coming clean-


    "In a bizarre attempt to avoid a 50-game drug suspension, San Francisco Giants star Melky Cabrera created a fictitious website and a nonexistent product designed to prove he inadvertently took the banned substance that caused a positive test under Major League Baseball’s drug program.

    But instead of exonerating Cabrera of steroid use, the Internet stunt trapped him in a web of lies. Amid the information-gathering phase of his doping case last month, his cover story unraveled quickly, and what might have been a simple suspension has attracted further attention from federal investigators and MLB, the Daily News has learned.
    ....

    The scheme began unfolding in July as Cabrera and his representatives scrambled to explain a spike in the former Yankee’s testosterone levels. Cabrera associate Juan Nunez, described by the player’s agents, Seth and Sam Levinson, as a “paid consultant” of their firm but not an “employee,” is alleged to have paid $10,000 to acquire the phony website. The idea, apparently, was to lay a trail of digital breadcrumbs suggesting Cabrera had ordered a supplement that ended up causing the positive test, and to rely on a clause in the collectively bargained drug program that allows a player who has tested positive to attempt to prove he ingested a banned substance through no fault of his own.

    “There was a product they said caused this positive,” one source familiar with the case said of Cabrera’s scheme. “Baseball figured out the ruse pretty quickly.”

    Re: Melky gets 50 game suspension

    Yeah but after the failed attempt at redirection with the fake website and fictitious product, he totally admitted he cheated.

    So, it's looking like this taking of the PED caused him $40,010,000.00 to $50,010,000.00 that he wouldn't have gotten if he didn't ever take the PED.
    Whatever you think...
    Well, you're wrong.

    Yeah, he chose to be "honest" once he was caught lying/creating a ruse with a fictitious website and was being investigated by the feds. What an honorable guy!

    At some point you consider coming clean. Melky deserves a lot of props for knowing when to throw in the towel.

    Nor his agents who probably played a much larger role in this than we know. After all they would stand to profit a ton if he were to sign a mega contract.

    Yeah, and he chose to only after all other avenues were exhausted. Why does that deserve props?

    Because he admitted it. He didn't try to say he drank a tainted milkshake or something.

    Are you kidding me? Did you read the post on this page about Melky's reps creating a website for a fake supplement? This guy literally tried everything in the book. The scary part to me is he tried to take a page out of Brauns according to an article. Yikes

    It makes sense to try to get away with it (up to a point). Melky reached that point and admitted he took the PEDs. Others have reached that point and continued to lie. Props to Melky.

    I just hope there isn't a trail back to any current Yankees. That's right, I'm talking about Cano and Arod.

    Your definition of "sense" is a little different than mine.

    I see your point and it only makes sense from the standpoint that he took the PEDs in the first place. As anyone who has done so, he didn't want to be caught. Once he was caught it made "sense" to try to get away with it. As I've said, he was at the point where he had no further recourse. He was suspended beyond appeal. Either make up some lie at that point or come clean. He came clean. Props.

    No, after getting caught with a positive test, he lied by having that bogus site and saying he got the drugs from that site, when he found out that wasn't going to fly then he came clean.

    1. Got caught with a positive test.

    2. Attempted to lie about why that stuff was in his system.

    3. After realizing that attempt has failed finally came clean and issued his public admission.

    If he skipped #2 and went straight to 3 then I would agree with you.

    This is my fear after Arod working out with him and trying to get us to sign him in the offseason. His friendship with Cano will also have some writers salivating.

    You can bet your last dollar that baseball writers are working OT trying to make some kind of connection to the Yankees. The sharks are in the water.

    That should be conspiracy to defraud, and as far as the integrity of the game, should warrant a lifetime ban.

    from cbs sports:

    Now, instead of getting ready to sign the biggest contract of his career, he's being investigated by the FDA, Major League Baseball and possibly, at some point, even the DEA.
