    Nonetheless, color me unsurprised.
    It wouldn't demonstrate either.

    First of all, if the players are using HGH, there hasn't been any in-season testing for it at the MLB level until 2013. Second, there are masking agents that work. The chemists are one step ahead of the testing agencies. How are they looking away when they are actively suspending the players they do catch?

    I would love to here some more names. I wonder if the Blue Jays get their stuff from Florida too. Maybe they have a Toronto office also!

    I think it is still too early to jump to any conclusions. This whole report seems so damn shady...

    If this is true though what a blooming idiot A-Rod is, just downright dumb.

    God Arod has been nothing but an embarrassment for this franchise. I really hope its determined that he cant come back from this injury of his so that we dont have to pay him anymore.

    New York Rangers: 37-29-4, 78PTS
    New York Knicks: 27-40

    You think they would try to help the Marlins a bit... Maybe Selig should just let Miami use them so they can win more than 30 games this year.

    Quite frankly this report seems shady and I am considering it fabricated until some form of corroboration can be attained. Both Gio and Rodriquez are outright denying any connection to this clinic, the "notebooks" are a little too specific despite the inherently secretive nature of the alleged activities, etc.

    Reading comprehension is difficult, so let's try this again.

    Anywhoo....

    This feels like a targeted media snipe.

    For instance, to our knowledge Alex has not failed a single test while wearing a Yankee uniform, yet this report would have us believe he has been actively using every year since at least 2009 and is paid for continued PEDs usage through this year.

    Sorry, I am not buying this.

    This is pretty random. What do the Blue Jays have to do with any of this?

    I don't know if the reports are true or not, but whatever Arod may have been using must have been some weak stuff. Arod's performance from 2009-2012 has overall been pretty damn mediocre.

    For A-Rod, yeah. But still a productive player.

    Don't worry about it. He replies to posts without reading through them entirely or recognizing the context often enough in the Mets forum.

    According to THIS report A-rod CAN be suspended due to this...


    http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports...nsion/1874225/

    New York Yankees All-Star third baseman Alex Rodriguez could be suspended by Major League Baseball in light of a story from Miami New Times that details performance-enhancing drugs he received and used from a South Florida clinic, a person familiar with MLB's drug policy told USA TODAY Sports.

    The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing

    i agree, he isn't worth what he is being paid, but he has been a pretty consistent 3 war third baseman, and would still be productive for a lot of teams.

    Right, but not productive enough that shows me PED's had any effect, if he was using anything.

    It seems to me, if Arod was using, it was to get back onto the field. This isn't like Barry Bonds who was smacking 73 home runs at the age of 36. Whatever Arod may have been using obviously wasn't working.

    Not condoning his actions if the report is true, just saying that whatever he was supposedly using was some weak stuff. That, or he was only using for injuries.
